Reaching toward a rock star is a popular way to let them know that, unlike most fans, you appreciate both their musical work and supple hand skin. Raise the roof with today’s GrouponLive deal to see Blondie perform at the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, September 28, at 8 p.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get one ticket for a balcony seat (a $50.25 value, including all ticketing fees).
- For $29, you get one ticket for an parquet seat (a $60.50 value, including all ticketing fees).
Late ‘70s punk and New Wave veterans Blondie take the stage to shower audiences with power chords and caustic lyrics in celebration of its just-released ninth studio album, Panic of Girls. Iconic frontwoman Deborah Harry continues along her fashion-forward trajectory by donning a metal suit forged from the band’s multiple platinum records and strutting her stuff during lead single “Mother” and other fan favorites. Joined by fellow holdovers Clem Burke and Chris Stein along with three fresh faces, Harry invokes the same balance of punk irony and radio-ready hooks that propelled the band up the charts 30 years ago and into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.
Before fans get their fill of hits, special guest Nico Vega puts a modern spin on post-punk with clipped riffs and singer Aja Volkman's snarling wails. Concertgoers seated in the parquet sections are advised to check crowd-surf forecasts ahead of time, and those in the balcony and can bring sunglasses to shield their eyes from the glare of peroxide emanating from the stage.
