See LIW‘s review of Blondie’s free concert in the park: Blondie Packs Eisenhower Park To Capacity With Free Concert

CBS Presents “Saturday in the Park” featuring Blondie on Saturday, Aug. 19, at the Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre in Eisenhower Park. The show will begin at 7:30 p.m.; admission is free.

CBS-FM’s on-air personalities Scott Shannon, Dan Taylor, Bill Lee, Joe Causi and more will be on stage to introduce a live performance by Blondie (“Heart of Glass,” “Call Me,” “Rapture,” “Long Time”) featuring band members Debbie Harry, Chris Stein, Clem Burke, Leigh Foxx, Matt Katz-Bohen and Tommy Kessler.

Much of the Nassau County Parks Department programming for July, August and September is funded through the Nassau County Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant. These funds are made available to us through proceeds from taxes on hotel and motel rooms in Nassau County. Since 2006, Nassau County has received over ten million dollars from this grant, and it has assisted in historic building restoration and other cultural enhancements.
