BLONDIE, ROCK 'N' ROLL LEGENDS, TO PERFORM AND RECEIVE THE ICON AWARD AT THE "8th ANNUAL TV LAND AWARDS"

Award Show to Premiere on TV Land on Sunday, April 25th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT

April 15, 2010, Los Angeles, CA -- Blondie, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, and the pioneers of rock and new wave, will be honored at the "8th Annual TV Land Awards" that will be held on Saturday, April 17th, 2010 on the historic stage 15 of the Sony Studios Culver City lot. The band will receive the Icon Award for its contributions to music and pop culture through their long and successful career in the music industry. In addition to receiving the Icon Award, the band will be performing one of their classic hits. The TV Land Awards premieres on Sunday, April 25th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006, music, style and pop culture icons and best selling recording artists, Blondie emerged from the late '70s new wave punk scene in New York City and defied easy categorization. With great rock hooks and brilliant, ironic lyrics, they were also known for their hip clothes and the cool hair. Lead singer, Debbie Harry went from the pages of Punk magazines to the cover of just about every mainstream publication on the newsstands. With multiple #1 smash hits like "Heart of Glass," "One Way Or Another," "Call Me," "Rapture" and "Maria," the band has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide. Their "Maria" made Blondie the only artist to have a #1 hit in the UK in each of 3 decades, further proving their relevance and staying power. Blondie is currently finishing a brand new album to be released later this year, their first release with new music since The Curse of Blondie in 2003.

Blondie will be heading out on a world tour beginning in June. For more information on Blondie, please visit http://www.blondie.net/.
