Not sure if you had the same reaction reading all of those names together and the word “tour” after, but for me it was something along the lines of, “are you f’ing kidding me?!?” what an absolute DREAM TOUR. That’s right, badass forever babes Garbage, Blondie, AND Deap Vally are heading out on tour together and will be stopping in Philly to play the Mann Center on August 2nd. The Rage and Rapture tour will follow the release of Blondie’s highly anticipated forthcoming album Po11inator due out this Spring. All three bands are incredible live so this is definitely a show you do NOT want to miss.
Tickets for the Philadelphia show will be on sale Friday, February 17th at 10AM via MannCenter.org, Ticketmaster, and the Mann Center Box Office.
