Blondie Set To Perform In Cuba

Blondie are set to play in Cuba next March as part of a four-day cultural exchange program. The iconic rock band officially unveiled “Blondie in Havana,” an historic cultural exchange set for March 14-18, 2019, in Havana, Cuba. The band will play two concerts in Havana, which will also feature Cuban musicians Alain Perez, David Torrens and Sintesis. “We’ve never been to Cuba,” says Blondie founding member Chris Stein, “though we’ve always hoped to get there someday. We’ve been talking about it for ages and now it’s finally happening. Havana is such an incredible scene, such an incredible city. I’ve always been fascinated by their music and their wildly creative culture. It’s going to be an amazing trip and we’re all really looking forward to it.” “Blondie has always had a love for music from that part of the world,” Blondie founding member and drummer Clem Burke added. “All the way back to ‘Rapture’ and ‘The Tide Is High,’ we’ve always experimented with Caribbean sounds and polyrhythm. So as soon as going to Cuba became a possibility, we started putting something together. I think there will be a really special energy. To be with some of our closest friends and fans in a whole different environment, a whole new plane. We’re really looking forward to it.” Registration begins Friday, September 28th at 9 a.m. Blondie is set to release a six-song EP entitled BLONDIE: Heart of Glass, which will feature six different versions of the band’s 1979 landmark pop-dance smash. The EP will be released on October 26 via USM. Copyright(c) 2018 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
