When the True Colors tour kicks off this Friday in Las Vegas, Debbie Harry will be performing solo for the first time since Blondie reunited a decade ago. "It's sort of experimental for me," she says. "I'm going to be doing it in a very stripped-down way. No big band." Her reasons for working solo instead of under the Blondie name are simple: "Blondie doesn't have a record deal," she says."I can do a solo project much more economically." The sixteen-date tour, which also includes Cyndi Lauper, Erasure, the Dresden Dolls and the Gossip, will raise money for the Human Rights Campaign and the Matthews Shepherd Foundation. Rosie O'Donnell, Rufus Wainwright and the Indigo Girls are guesting on select dates. "The thing that startles and stuns me is that there are so many extreme Christian groups that are anti-gay," Harry says. "I can't understand how anyone who believes themselves to be a deeply religious person can have a prejudice like that. It's just so destructive. This tour is going to unify people and give them a chance to celebrate their personal freedoms.
