The Pretenders Tickets
Chrissie Hynde has been steeped in music and alt culture since she moved to the UK from Ohio in 1973. She was working at NME back then as well as in Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood’s clothing store in King’s Road. She was involved with several bands back then too although it wasn’t until 1978, that the band she hit it big with, The Pretenders, was formed.
The original line up – before the band even had a name – consisted of Chrissie, Pete Farndon, James Honeyman-Scott and Gerry Mcilduff. Soon Mcilduff was replaced by Martin Chambers on drums and The Pretenders were born.
Since those early days, The Pretenders have released 10 studio albums including, Alone, the most recent released in 2016.
