Event Description:

Garbage was formed by Shirley Manson, Duke Erikson, Steve Marker and Butch Vig  in Madison, Wisconsin over 20 years ago. The band’s unique sound and provocative visual aesthetic inspired massive worldwide attention and success. Since their debut, the Grammy-nominated band has sold over 15 million albums worldwide and performed in over thirty-five countries. In 2015, the band celebrated its 20th anniversary with their sold out '20 Years Queer' world tour, and last year they released Strange Little Birds, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and Alternative Albums chart.

For the last four decades, Blondie has become and still remains a true national treasure; one whose influence both shaped and continues to inform the worlds of music, fashion and art. Comprised of singer-songwriter Debbie Harry, guitarist and co-writer Chris Stein, powerhouse drummer Clem Burke, and long-time band members bassist Leigh Foxx, guitarist Tommy Kessler and keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen, Blondie’s chart-topping success, fearless spirit and rare longevity led to an induction into the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2006, a NME Godlike Genius Award in 2014, a Q Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music in 2016, and more than 40 million albums sold worldwide to date. Their latest album Pollinator features songwriting from Sia, Blood Orange frontman Dev Hynes, British singer Charli XCX, Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio), Nick Valensi (The Strokes), Johnny Marr (The Smiths) and more.

The groups bring their co-headlining Rage and Rapture Tour to the Edgefield lawn on July 12th! Tickets go on sale Friday, February 17th at 10am, but members of the Charle Squad will get handy dandy access to the February 16th presale.
