Blondie’s “Parallel Lines 30th Anniversary Tour” Begins June 5 in Baltimore

Hollywood, California – May 6, 2008 – On June 24, Capitol/EMI will release an expanded 30th Anniversary Edition of Blondie’s Parallel Lines album, which has sold more than 20 million copies around the world since its 1978 debut. The commemorative CD/DVD release adds four bonus audio tracks, three classic music videos and a previously unreleased TV performance from the BBC’s “Top Of The Pops” to the album’s original tracklist, as well as a booklet containing the original album photo session.

Parallel Lines peaked at #6 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart and included Blondie’s first #1 hit, “Heart Of Glass,” named one of the greatest songs ever by Blender magazine. The iconic album also features the smash hit “One Way Or Another” as well as “Hanging On The Telephone” and “Sunday Girl.”

This summer, the legendary New York City icons and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees return to doing what they do best: hitting the road to sold-out performances across the U.S. and Europe on the band’s “Parallel Lines 30th Anniversary Tour.” Says Blondie’s Chris Stein, "We are looking forward to seeing new and old fans out there this summer. We have been doing pretty much the same show for several tours now, and this time we have more rehearsal time than usual and we’re going to try to take it a bit further."
