    However, viewers watching on BBC iPlayer at home couldn't hear the singer belt out the popular track.

    Taking to Twitter, one fan moaned: "Turn Debbie Harry’s mic up #Glastonbury #Blondie."

    Another added: "Turn her mic up bless her. #blondie #Glastonbury"

    A third person posted: "Turn up Debbie's mic! #Blondie #Glastonbury."

    While a fourth social media user said: "Um, can someone turn Blondie's mic on please? #glastonbury."

    Earlier this month, Debbie confirmed that Blondie guitarist Chris Stein had been a "major contributor" to the group’s forthcoming album, despite taking a step back from touring due to health reasons.

    In April 2022, Chris announced he was stepping down from performing with the new wave band due to an issue with his heart.

    "I’m sad and frustrated to report that I’m not going out with the next bunch of Blondie touring," he wrote on Instagram.

    "I’ve been dealing with a dumba** condition called Atrial Fibrillation or AFib which is irregular heart beats and combined with the meds I take for it I’m too fatigued to deal”"

    He continued: "I’m still all in with recording and other band projects and I should be out for [discussion events, etc.,] later on…That’s it, I’m fine, I’m around here and I love you all."

    The band was a pioneer in the American new wave scene of the mid-1970s in New York City.

    Their first two albums contained strong elements of punk and new wave, and although highly successful in the UK and Australia, Blondie was regarded as an underground band in the US until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978.

    The band also became noted for its eclectic mix of musical styles, also incorporating elements of disco, pop, reggae, and early rap music.
