The dates open July 5 in Saratoga, Calif., and continue until Aug. 12 in Dallas, though more dates are being promised.

Before the North American run Blondie is in Australia with Cyndi Lauper for the first two weeks of April. Blondie released a live album, Real Real Blondie, in 2015, and have a new LP out, titled Pollinator, May 5.

Garbage will be playing tunes from last year’s, Strange Little Birds, though fans can probably expect some of the classic hits as well.
