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."
