Blondie will be celebrating its classic album “Parallel Lines” with its Parallel Lines 30th Anniversary Tour kicking off June 5 in Baltimore, MD. Concerts are already booked through August 2 in Oslo, Norway, with an international leg that takes the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees to Israel and Russia in addition to most of the typical European cities. More dates are expected to be announced soon.

On June 24, Capitol/EMI will release an expanded 30th Anniversary Edition of the “Parallel Lines” album, which has sold more than 20 million copies around the world since its 1988 debut. The commemorative CD/DVD release adds four bonus audio tracks, three classic music videos and a previously unreleased TV performance from the BBC’s “Top Of The Pops” to the album’s original track list, as well as a booklet containing the original album photo session. It contained Blondie’s first #1 hit, “Heart Of Glass,” named one of the greatest songs ever by Blender magazine. The iconic album also features the smash hit “One Way Or Another” as well as “Hanging On The Telephone” and “Sunday Girl.”

“We are looking forward to seeing new and old fans out there this summer,” Blondie’s Chris Stein said in a statement. “We have been doing pretty much the same show for several tours now, and this time we have more rehearsal time than usual and we’re going to try to take it a bit further.”
