Never miss another 'The Pretenders' show
'Alone' Tour: The Pretenders, The Rails
Due to huge demand for their sold out Royal Albert Hall show on April 10 2017, the Pretenders have announced a full UK tour for Autumn 2017, which will see the band play shows across the country in support of their new album, Alone.
Since 1979, as Punk became New Wave, The Pretenders, fronted by Chrissie Hynde, took the charts by storm, clocking up hit singles including 'Stop Your Sobbing', 'Brass In Pocket, 'Back On The Chain Gang', the annual Christmas anthem '2000 Miles' and the power ballad 'I'll Stand By You', years later covered as a charity single by Girls Aloud. The band continued to release new material in the 90s and 00s, while Hyde published a successful and revealing autobiography in 2015; 'Reckless: My Life As A Pretender', along with a new Pretenders studio album in 2016; 'Alone'.

James is one of the country’s finest guitarists and full time member of the Pretenders, he also plays with both Ray Davies and the Pogues. Kami is folk rock royalty, daughter of Richard and Linda Thomson, sister to Teddy. The couple began working together in 2011 and married the following year.
