In celebration of the release of Pollinator on May 5th, the band returned to the iconic Roundhouse in London for a triumphant show, receiving an ecstatic reception from fans and critics alike.

Blondie also brought audiences a taste of Pollinator with stunning live performances on 'Later… with Jools Holland' (BBC Two), 'The One Show' (BBC One), 'The Chris Evans Breakfast Show' (BBC Radio 2) and Tonight At The London Palladium (ITV).
