Devo, Blondie 2012 tour cancels stop in Tampa
Blondie and Devo's short tour of the U.S. this September was *supposed* to include a Sept. 21 stop at Tampa's Stadium Green Iguana. Alas, it wasn't meant to be. For Tampa anyway; that show has been canceled.
Publicists for Blondie didn't give a reason for the cancellation, only replying "Confirmed" when I asked them to confirm the news.
To be fair, it was an unusual choice of venues for them. The Green Iguana is home to the 20-something Jersey Shore generation. Maybe there was a conflict with a bikini contest that couldn't be moved. In any case, the rest of their tour seems solid.
Those of us in Tampa, it's roadtrip time to the Sept. 22 show in St. Augustine.
