Blondie Capture

There are any number of reasons to go see Blondie at the Pikes Peak Center tonight. She was rock, she was punk, she was rap, she was ska, she was new wave and she was… disco! This video of “Heart of Glass” (sorry, embedding wasn’t available on this one) pretty much says it all. Yeah, she’s no spring chicken now, but neither is Bob Dylan, and he never did disco like this, or at all for that matter. Whatever you’re doing tonight, we can almost guarantee that it won’t be your last opportunity to do it unless you’re going to see Blondie. She’ll never come here again. Seriously. Pay homage!

All the info you need to buy tickets and find your way there is right HERE.

And just in case you thought she was done with her genre safari, here’s an acoustastic country version of “Heart of Glass” for you:

    The first 45 I ever owned was “Heart of Glass”. I was in 4th grade, and I purchased it with my own money I had saved up. In my book, nobody, and I mean NOBODY, beats Blondie. But I have to work tonight…….*sigh*
