Blondie, Thetford Forest
The voice may not be as strong, but there is no mistaking the sound of Debbie Harry and Blondie.
The band, whose music has spanned five decades, treated a sell-out crowd to not only their hits but also some of their new material in Thetford Forest on Saturday night.
And they certainly kept everyone entertained on a bitterly cold night for around an hour-and-a-half from the moment they opened with One Way or Another.
There were old favourites such as Hanging on the Telephone, Union City Blue, The Tide is High, Maria, Heart of Glass and Call Me.

But the highlight was a rip-roaring version of Atomic which allowed guitarist Tommy Kesler to show off his skills.
Such is their catalogue of hits, there was no time for Sunday, Girl, Denis, (I am Always Touched by Your) Presence, Dear or Rapture, Blondie instead surprisingly choosing the Frankie Goes to Hollywood hit Relax as part of their encore before ending the show with Dreaming.
