 There's always a bit of moaning around the Pyramid stage acts at Glastonbury, with people claiming some artists don't have enough hits to pull it off (Stormzy and Billie Eilish have recently faced some of this criticism, often tinged with prejudice). If anyone was least likely to experience this issue, it has to be Blondie. 👩‍🎤🎸

It's all too easy to forget the breadth and depth of Blondie's discography, until you find yourself being hit over and over again with one classic tune after another. Even their 75-minute slot at Glastonbury wasn't enough to fit in all their hits like Union City Blue, Picture This, and Sunday Girl. Barring a couple of lukewarm recent tracks, Blondie proudly showcased their impressive collection with undeniable style and flare. 🔥

Debbie Harry: Cyberpunk Queen of Charisma

Debbie Harry's magnetic presence set the stage afire, with her CBGB T-shirt and futuristic visor paying homage to both the infamous venue that launched Blondie and the grimey 1970s New York the band arose from. Let's be honest, Debbie's voice might not be as strong as it once was, but once she warmed up and began hitting those higher notes, the audience was captivated. 🤩

 What really shines, though, are her untamed coolness and unpredictable brio, which make her so fascinating to watch. Debbie's theatrics, from-cat-like prowling to peppering her performance with throwbacks to her legendary songs, kept everyone hooked.


For Hanging on the Telephone, she rants like a woman scolding a treacherous lover down the line of a public call box and later on, she comments in true Debbie Harry style (and with operatic disdain) on how irrelevant these tunes are to the modern world of smartphones. 😎📞

Blondie's Live Lineup: A Parade of Musical Talent

Despite Chris Stein's absence from the stage, with Clem Burke beating the drums instead, the band was rounded out by young musicians, including a lead guitarist who gave Slash a run for his money the night before. The keytar was played with cool insouciance, giving some songs an extra kick. Even bassist Glen Matlock (the 3rd ex-Sex Pistols member playing that weekend) brought a fun touch with his sun-kissed silver mane making him look like a debonair rogue funding the gig. 🎹🥁🎸

 Among the newer tracks, Long Time, co-written with Dev Hynes, highlights Blondie's ability to keep producing great tunes, but it was Heart of Glass that got the Pyramid crowd swaying as one. That magical moment underlined Debbie's influence and how, at 77, the unflappable Harry is still proving she can put on a show like no other. 💖✨

    Wow, Blondies melodies at Glastonbury were like a time-traveling rollercoaster! 🎒🀘

    1. Salma Wilkerson says:

      Nah, I totally disagree. They sounded like a washed-up cover band trying too hard to relive their glory days. The nostalgia may have blinded you, but for me, it was a snooze-fest. Different strokes, I guess.

    Blondies stage presence is electrifying! Cant get enough of Debbie Harrys iconic vocals 🎀πŸ”₯

    1. Noah says:

      Sorry, but I have to disagree. While Debbie Harrys vocals are indeed iconic, Blondies stage presence lacks the energy and excitement that many other bands bring. Different strokes for different folks, I suppose!
