Blondie/Devo show in Tampa is back on ... in Pinellas Park


The Blondie/Devo tour that is getting all the buzz as it prepares for a fall trip around the U.S. is going to have a Tampa Bay stop after all. Better save the day of Sunday, Sept. 23, because the show is coming to the England Brothers Bandshell Park in Pinellas Park, according to the promoter.

Tickets will be general admission and cost only $14. Yeah, just like they might have been in the '80s. You can buy them Friday, July 13, at 10 a.m. at, according to Fat Harry Productions. (Get more details on this unusual gig at our sister blog, Soundcheck)

If you recall, this show was originally set for the Stadium Green Iguana in Tampa before it was canceled without any explanation. Turns out the venue is being closed and turned into a car dealership.
