Blondie Said It Was Their "Moral Duty" To Turn Down Performing At Winter Olympics
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.19.2014



Writing for NME, Blondie said it was their "moral duty" to turn down an offer to perform after a medal ceremony during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. They tweeted a photo of the offer earlier this month. They would have performed in front of 25,000 people at the Red Rocks festival on the Sochi Medals Plaza in a 45 minute set.

Debbie Harry and Chris Stein wrote: "We wanted to go but it didn't feel proper, especially in light of the crazy new legislation banning 'homosexual propaganda' and the climate of anti-gay abuse. Blondie has a long relationship with the gay community. These are our friends and neighbors, so to take a stand and represent them feels natural to us."
