September 20!



Great news: Our 2013 Summer Concert Series just got even better!

Join us on Friday, September 20, at 7:30pm for the legendary Blondie in the beautiful outdoor Lilian Fontaine Garden Theatre. Whether you remember them from the 80s or you're discovering them for the first time, these pioneers of new wave rock, fronted by the glamorous Debbie Harry, will rock your socks off, "One way or Another"!

Blondie has sold more than 40 million albums globally and reached the top of the charts with such hits as “Heart Of Glass,” “Rapture,” “Maria,” and more. In 2006, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Their new album, Panic of Girls, is the ninth in the band’s 37-year career.

Tickets are still available for our other Summer Concerts as well, but many of them are filling up fast! Click here to see the full lineup and purchase your tickets today.

When you purchase your tickets, make your evening even more memorable by adding Dining on the Terrace! Enjoy an elegant pre-concert buffet dinner on the beautiful front veranda of the historic Villa. For just $55 per person (fees, tax, & gratuity included; beverages not included), you'll have a chance to look out on the beautiful lawn and gardens as you enjoy your meal in the golden twilight hour. 

Tickets to Blondie go on sale TOMORROW, June 21, at 10am. NOTE: tickets, Dining on the Terrace, and on-site parking for Summer Concerts can only be purchased through Ticketmaster; not available through the Montalvo Box Office.
