They're relentless, they're outrageously good, they're thrilling, raw, and rocking! The Pretenders are hitting the road again, and are bringing their US Tour, An Evening With… The Pretenders to the Arizona Federal Theatre on 10 August 2024!

It's an eclectic mix of rock, new wave, and punk music that is melodic and bristling with rebellion. It exposes punk's confessional underbelly, is innovative and flamboyant, and is The Pretenders doing what they do best!

Following the release of their latest critically acclaimed studio album, “Relentless”, the Chrissie Hynde-led rockers are ready to thrill, thunder, and rampage, leaving awe and a post-concert buzz that lasts for weeks in their wake.

After 45 years of consistently producing smashers such as “Talk Of The Town” and "Don't Get Me Wrong" and their track record of sold-out shows, the 2024 US Tour promises to hold up. Tickets are selling from only $71, so you better hit that button right now to get yours to avoid missing out on the concert of the season!

45 years ago, The Pretenders were at their best, and they are at their best now and are even more relentless than ever!

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees smashed into the music scene in 1979 with the critically acclaimed cover of The Kinks' "Stop Your Sobbing", shortly after that, they topped the charts with "Kid" and "Brass In Pocket". Their self-titled debut album, released in 1980, has been named one of the best debut albums of all time by Rolling Stone. The Pretenders produced countless hits, from “Message Of Love” and “Don’t Get Me Wrong” to “My Baby” and “I’ll Stand By You”, among others.

The Pretenders’ latest album, "Relentless", is the second songwriting collaboration between Chrissie Hynde and lead guitarist James Walbourne, spawning bangers such as “Losing My Sense of Taste” and “I Think About You Daily”. The Telegraph described Relentless as "one of the most thrilling things you'll hear all year."

When it comes to The Pretenders in concert – they are outrageously good and oozes vast amounts of raw power, leaving crowds everywhere well and in absolute awe. "An Evening With… The Pretenders” promise to be no different – the icons will be rocking the crowd with their beloved hits, some new bangers from "Relentless", and scatterings of surprise hits.

With The Pretenders, there is no 'pretense' – just raw and real rock. Front-lady Chrissie Hynde takes to the stage with her guitar strapped to her like a rifle – the epitome of an iconic rock star. Her voice is an instantly recognizable mixture of sand and honey, attitude and yearning, delicate beauty and thundering power - and just as exquisite as ever. She will be joined on stage by drummer Martin Chambers, bassist Nick Wilkinson, lead guitarist and co-writer James Walbourne, and pedal steel guitarist Eric Heywood.

The multipurpose 5,000-seat Arizona Federal Theatre is one of Phoenix's biggest hotspots for top entertainment. The venue offers three seating sections at three levels – balcony seating, club seating, and main seating - for optimal viewing. Every single seat is the best seat in the house! Add one of the world's most iconic rock bands to the mix, and you'll have a seriously good time!
