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.
