The Ticket gig of The week
“She dances like my ma,” whispers the woman behind me at Tuesday’s Blondie gig in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre. It’s true; glancing up on the stage at Debbie Harry jiving like the best of them is reminiscent of some kind of embarrassing family wedding – but the thing is, kids, she may dance like yer ma, but she still sings like Debbie Harry. Rocking her way through classic hits such as One Way or Another, Call Me and Hanging on the Telephone, the crowd doesn’t mind listening to little-known tracks from her latest release. Some people just have it. Harry definitely has it. And by the looks of things she ain’t planning on giving it up any time soon.
