Platinum Blonde is playing in Kitchener Waterloo! The Chrysalids Theatre and Dave FM present Platinum Blonde Live in Kitchener Waterloo!
I remember this band from my university days. Platinum Blonde originated in 1983 as a tribute band performing the music of The Police in Canada’s university and club circuit. In 1983, they released a self-titled six-song EP, which made it to #39 on the Canadian album charts. It was quickly expanded into a full length album titledStanding in the Dark.
The band’s popularity on the airwaves in Canada was thanks to a triple platinum (300,000) album, featuring four hits including two Juno Award nominations: “Standing in the Dark” and “It Doesn’t Really Matter”. Their music videos were placed into high rotation on the newly created MuchMusic, Canada’s national music video network. Within months some were calling Platinum Blonde the top band of the decade because of their glamorous image and cutting-edge, futuristic New Wave videos.
