The Pretenders

The Pretenders have announced that their planned UK tour in February and March will now take place in October 2024.

Chrissie Hynde has shared a message with Pretenders fans that she’s suffering from a knee injury and needs time to recuperate.

“We’re champing at the bit to get back on the road, but looks like we’re gonna have to hold tight for a while,” Chrissie Hynde wrote.

“I have a knee injury which will have to be dealt with first. I was hoping I could limp through the next 6 weeks, but it’s just getting worse. (I’ll spare you the gory details…)

“We will be rescheduling the postponed shows to later in the year. So sorry for the inconvenience but look forward to seeing you then.”

All planned concerts in Gateshead, Edinburgh, Manchester, London, Oxford, Bristol, Nottingham and Birmingham have been rescheduled for October.

There will also be additional four shows in Portsmouth, Hull, London and Ipswich. Tickets to these dates go on sale from Absolute Radio Tickets at 10am on Friday 16th February.

The tour follows the September 2023 release of The Pretenders’ 12th studio album ‘Relentless’, the band’s highest-charting record in 23 years and 14th UK Top 40 release.

The setlist each night will feature Pretenders classics alongside newer songs from their back catalogue.
