Blondie Start Millennium With Nude Dancers

New-wave band brought troupe onstage for 'Auld Lang Syne,' 'Time Is on My Side' medley.

Blondie marked the new year by inviting a nude dance troupe onstage

with them as they performed a medley of "Auld Lang Syne" and R&B singer

Irma Thomas' "Time Is on My Side" (made popular by the Rolling

Stones) on the beach in Miami Beach, Fla. The band took the stage on

South Beach in front of around 10,000 people for that encore around 12:15

a.m. Saturday (Jan. 1), a Blondie publicist said. During the show, the

popular new-wave band, which toured in 1999 for the first time in 16 years,

played such hits as "One Way or Another."
