Blondie, Cowboy Junkies at Britt
Blondie, featuring pop vocalist Deborah Harry, was a pioneer of American new wave and punk rock in the mid '70s. The group emerged from the underground music scene in New York City in 1978 with the release of its third and most popular album, "Parallel Lines" and went on to record several hit singles.
Blondie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the RockWalk of Fame in 2006 and is touring the country this summer.
The group will perform at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, July 19, at the Britt Pavilion in Jacksonville. Tickets are $65 for reserved seating, $39 for lawn and $28 for ages 12 and younger.
On Saturday, July 18, Cowboy Junkies will bring its alternative style of blues, country, folk and rock to the Britt Pavilion. The Canadian group features vocalist Margo Timmins and her two brothers — songwriter and guitarist Micheal Timmins and drummer Peter Timmins — along with bassist Alan Anton.
Alternative country band Son Volt will open the show at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $37 for reserved seating, $26 for lawn and $14 for ages 12 and younger.
