Pretenders Announce Intimate 2023 US Headlining Tour
The nine-date club jaunt kicks off on Aug. 16 at New York's Bowery Ballroom and wraps up on Oct. 6 at San Francisco's Bimbo's 365 Club. Tickets go on sale on Friday. You can see the full list of dates below.
Pretenders just concluded a European stadium run with Guns N' Roses and will continue opening for the rockers next month, supporting them on seven North American stadium shows throughout August and September. They're also slated to perform at Ohana Festival in Dana Point, California, in October.
As for the album title, Chrissie Hynde said in a previous statement: "I enjoy seeing the various meanings and origins of a word – and I liked the definition: 'Showing no abatement of intensity.' It's the life of the artist. You never retire. You become relentless."
