The Pretenders tribute band are coming to Consett on February 20th 2015 at The Club That Rocks from 8pm.

The Pretenders got together in the late 1970s and released a self-titled album in 1980. Chrissie Hynde and bandmate James Honeyman-Scott penned the group’s first hit, “Brass in Pocket.” Subsequent releases produced the hit songs “Middle of the Road,” and “Back on the Chain Gang” (from 1984’s Learning to Crawl); and “Don’t Get Me Wrong” (from 1986’s Get Close); as well as 1994’s “I’ll Stand by You.”

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Christine Ellen Hynde was born on September 7, 1951, in Akron, Ohio. Hynde was one of the leading women in rock in the 1980s and ’90s as the lead singer of the Pretenders. After studying art at Kent State University for a time, she took off for London, England, where she discovered the emerging new rock genre called “punk.”

With Support from Newcastle based “The Pedantics”.
