American new-wave pioneers Blondie and Devo continue to build on their already legendary careers as they take to the road for their Whip It to Shreds tour. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Blondie rose to prominence in the late ‘70s and single-handedly saved the hair-bleach industry with the help of flaxen-haired lead singer Debbie Harry and a slew of electrified hits. After a decade-and-a-half hiatus, the band reformed in 1997, picking up where they left off and turning out genre-bending music with Chris Stein's amped-up guitar and Harry's distinctively smoky vocals. Blondie sends fans into a fever pitch with a back catalog of iconic tunes, such as "Call Me," "One Way or Another," and “Heart of Glass,” while also introducing ears to contemporary tracks from their 2011 album Panic of Girls, praised by Allmusic.com for retaining the band's "cosmopolitan cool."

Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo––famous for its eclectic fashion sense, mordant humor, and avant-garde musical sensibilities––recently told Reuters that the band has only become "scarier and more intense" since its start 40 years ago. Devo’s ubiquitous hit “Whip It” helped pioneer the nascent art of music video when it was released in 1980, and the song caught listeners by surprise with its electronic sound and satirical edge that’s present in the band’s newest album, Something for Everybody. In such songs as "Don’t Shoot (I'm a Man)," singers Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale "still bite off words with nervy smarts, like the art-punk/tech-nerds they will forever be," according to Pitchfork. With a slew of costume changes, the band's performances blur each member’s true identity with industrial jumpsuits, red energy-dome hats, and Groucho Marx glasses.

Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
