Two legendary music icons will be making their way to Queens this summer to perform a co-headlining show at the Forest Hill Stadium.

Singer Elvis Costello and rock band Blondie announced earlier today that they are setting out on a joint tour and will be stopping in Forest Hills on July 24. This will be a return for Costello, who performed on the same stage 35 years ago, and a first for Blondie.

Both Costello and Blondie began their rise to fame on the 70’s punk rock scene, and have been performing live ever since. English-born Costello is best known for his rock hits like “Pump it Up” and “Alison,” while Blondie are best known for songs like “Heart of Glass” and “One Way or Another.”

Tickets for the Forest Hills show will go on sale starting Saturday April 6 at 10 a.m., and will be available for purchase online at any time or in-person at the new Forest Hills Stadium box office, located just outside the stadium on Burns Street, Fridays from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Rough Trade, located on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, will also be selling tickets during box office hours.
