This summer, two bands that simply had to tour together will do just that. Debbie Harry and Blondie (who are releasing a new record, Pollinator, in March) will team up with Shirley Manson and Garbage (who released a great record titled Strange Little Birds in June 2016).
On its surface, the thought of catching both of these bands on the same stage each night is pretty alluring — as is the promise that both will be playing headlining sets!

Support for the tour will be split up by John Doe and Exene Cervenka (of the classic punk band X) and Deap Vally.
