Blondie & The Pretenders - A Day On The Green Co-Headliners

They’re two of music’s most acclaimed bands boasting two of music’s most compelling front women – Deborah Harry leading the wondrous Blondie and Chrissie Hynde fronting the mighty Pretenders.

As a double-bill, it’s a world first!  And it’s also an absolute cracker and that’s exactly what fans can savour when Blondie & The Pretenders co-headline a December tour of ‘a day on the green’ winery shows, and in conjunction with Frontier Touring, Vector Arena.  
 
This very special double header launches the 2010/2011 ‘a day on the green’ season with concerts on Saturday December 18 at Alana Estate, Martinborough and Sunday December 19 at The Mud House Winery, Waipara as well as Vector Arena on Thursday December 16.
 
Both The Pretenders and Blondie have enjoyed great success in New Zealand, fuelled by a stream of timeless Top Ten hits and the popularity of Hynde and Harry. Both ladies have always escaped the usual clichés of women in rock and are unquestionably two of the most important and influential women to have graced the stage. As co-headliners, the bands will alternate in closing the shows.
 
Local support for all three New Zealand concerts is Dukes, a five piece band hailing from Christchurch. Dukes has made a major impression on the kiwi public in the last twelve months after the release of their cross-over hit ‘Vampires’ which became a Top 10 single and achieved Gold sales. Their debut album is due for release in New Zealand this October.
