The Pretenders are excited to announce a headline theatre tour across the UK beginning 24th February 2024 at Gateshead’s The Glasshouse, and closing on 6th March at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall. The tour will take in nine shows, featuring two performances at The London Palladium on 28th and 29th February. Tickets are on sale from 10:00 GMT on 10th November 2023 here.

The news follows five sold out club gigs performed through October 2023 – high energy performances at London’s Electric Ballroom, Manchester’s O2 Ritz and Glasgow’s Barrowlands were feverishly received, with the band’s live show described as “iconic” by the Evening Standard, “legendary” by the Sun On Sunday and “outrageously good” by Louder Than War.

The 2024 theatre tour arrives in the wake of The Pretenders’ new album, Relentless, their highest-charting record in 23 years, and 14th UK Top 40 release. The new songs have been met with high critical praise. 2023 has seen The Pretenders emphatically fulfil their non-stop touring schedule – the past year alone has seen the band perform over 60 gigs across the UK, US and Europe.

Looking ahead, The Pretenders will join the Foo Fighters on their upcoming 2024 US tour through July and August. New album Relentless is available now on baby pink vinyl, CD and digital download. Tickets for the 2024 UK headline theatre tour dates are available from Friday 10th November at 10:00 GMT.
