Debbie Harry has confirmed that she and Blondie partner Chris Stein have been added to the closing show bill at legendary New York club CBGBs.

They will play an exclusive acoustic set there on Saturday night (Oct 14), before headliners The Dictators.

As previously reported, Patti Smith will play the final gig at the New York venue on Sunday night.
