Stir It Up

Elvis Costello & The Imposters and Blondie at The Anthem July 26

June 3, 2019

Elvis Costello & The Imposters and Blondie will perform live at The Anthem July 26, 2019.

 

Costello and Blondie share a history, having both emerged from the late Seventies New Wave movement. At one point in 1979, both acts were rubbing elbows at the top of the UK album charts with their respective third LPs, the former’s Armed Forces and the latter’s Parallel Lines. (In the mid-Nineties, Costello and Blondie singer Debbie Harry collaborated on a track with the Jazz Passengers.)

Costello & the Imposters issued their most recent album, Look Now, in 2018. Blondie released their 11th record, Pollinator, in 2017. During their recent live runs, both bands performed at the 2018 Riot Fest
