In October 2022, Chrissie Hynde embarked on a short tour playing working men’s clubs and ale houses. The tour was received with rapturous response and the shows were a very special opportunity to see a legend play new songs and personal favourites in exceptionally intimate settings.
She enjoyed it so much she’s doing it again this February… with these shows as part of Independent Venue Week.
“No hits,” she cautions of the shows “..well, maybe a few”.
Ohio born singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Chrissie Hynde formed The Pretenders in London in 1978, with Hereford natives, James Honeyman-Scott on guitar, Pete Farndon on bass, and drummer Martin Chambers.
Their debut album, released in January 1980, was the first UK number one album of the decade and garnered critical acclaim in Europe, The US, Australia and beyond.
The group’s personnel and dynamic has changed over the years, initially with the drug related deaths of Honeyman-Scott and Farndon in 1983. Hynde has remained a constant force as the band’s focal point, maintaining the original Pretenders unique guitar-based sound in the style of Honeyman-Scott.
She’s recorded 17 studio albums, primarily as Pretenders, and has guested with numerous other artists, including Frank Sinatra and Moreno Veloso.
The Pretenders latest album Hate for Sale, released July 2020, has ensured they continue to enjoy international airplay. They regularly tour the world to sold out venues.
