Pretenders’ Frontwoman Chrissie Hynde Brings Solo Show To Upper Darby’s Tower Theater

Over the last three decades, Pretenders’ frontwoman Chrissie Hynde has written some of the greatest hits of classic rock’s second generation.

Now in 2014,  Hynde has decided to go solo on a North American tour for the time-being, and she’s promoting her new critically acclaimed solo album, Stockholm, at Upper Darby’s Tower Theater on Tuesday, November 4. English folk duo The Rails is serving as Hynde’s supporting act on the North American leg of the tour.

Hynde, whose last Philadelphia performance was with the Pretenders at the Tower in August 2009, has been playing several of the Pretenders’ classics on the tour, including “My City Was Gone,” “Night in my Veins,” “Don’t Get Me Wrong,” and “Back on the Chain Gang.” The rest of the material in her set lists have been largely comprised of music from Stockholm, which is technically Hynde’s first solo album (although several Pretenders’ albums have been titled under the band’s name for contractual obligations). Stockholm, which features performances from Neil Young and John McEnroe (yes, THAT John McEnroe) was released last June to positive reviews.

Tickets for Hynde’s show are available at Live Nation.
