The Pretenders Plot Summer 2024 North American Tour

The Pretenders will be spending their summer on the road in support of their latest studio album Relentless. The headlining run, making more than a dozen stops throughout North America in July and August, will overlap with the band’s appearances as special guests at select shows on Foo Fighters’ upcoming stadium tour.

The Pretenders will kick off their summer run on July 13 in Red Bank, New Jersey at the Count Basie Center for the Art. The tour will make stops in Philadelphia, Boston, Milwaukee, Chicago, Austin, Phoenix, Sacramento, and more cities.

Select dates — including Chicago and Lenox, MA — are on sale now. General sale for the remaining headlining shows will begin on Friday, March 22 at 10 a.m. local time. Presales for the run will begin on Wednesday, March 20 at 10 a.m. local time.

Relentless, which arrived in September, marked the first album release from the Pretenders in three years. Chrissie Hynde and guitarist James Walborne created the album with producer Dave Wrench and The Pretenders Collective, a band consisting of Kris Sonne (drums), Chris Hill (double bass), Dave Page (bass), and Carwyn Ellis (keyboards and guitars).


“I enjoy seeing the various meanings and origins of a word,” Hynde shared in a statement when the album was first announced. “And I liked the definition: ‘showing no abatement of intensity.’ So when it came to an album title, it seemed fitting. You know… to keep doing it. I think anyone in a band is constantly questioning if they should keep going. It starts as a youthful pursuit and eventually, it makes you wonder, why am I doing this? It’s the life of the artist. You never retire. You become relentless.”
