UNION COUNTY — Tickets for the Sept. 16 performance of Blondie at the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City, are available in the price range of $80 to $385 but fans can take in a free concert when the group appears the following day at Union County MusicFest.
The Saturday, Sept. 17 line up also includes Mike Peters with The School of Rock Allstars, Nicole Atkins and The Black Sea, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Neon Trees and Paul Rodgers.
On Sunday, Sept. 18, the MusicFest will feature a School of Rock Tribute to Springsteen, The Smithereens as well as Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes.
Blondie kicked off its North American tour to promote their ninth studio album, Panic of Girls, which set for release this month with new songs and the recognizable sound of Debbie Harry, Clem Burke and Chris Stein, along with newer band members Leigh Foxx, Tommy Kessler and Matt Katz-Bohen.
Audiences will hear the band’s new tracks and Blondie hits at both Garden State venues and in shows from coast to coast but the free concert is clearly the better bargain in this troubled economy.
And those who remain in the northern part of the state on Friday, Sept. 16 can hear LIVE’s Ed Kowalczyk and Collective Soul, also in a free MusicFest concert.
Show details are available online at www.ucmusicfest.com.
