Pretenders add Ipswich to tour

The Pretenders have announced that their UK headline tour dates through February and March will now be rescheduled to October 2024.

The newly announced shows will begin on 11th October at Portsmouth’s Guildhall before closing at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall on 28th October. 

The tour will take in thirteen performances across the country, including four new dates announced today at Portsmouth’s Guildhall (11th October), Hull’s Bonus Arena (19th October), a third night at London’s Palladium (24th October), and a show at Ipswich’s Regent Theatre (26th October). Tickets are on sale from 10:00 GMT on Friday 16th February here.

In a message to fans shared via The Pretenders’ social media channels, Chrissie Hynde said:

Hi All!

We’re champing at the bit to get back on the road, but looks like we’re gonna have to hold tight for a while. I have a knee injury which will have to be dealt with first. I was hoping I could limp through the next 6 weeks, but it’s just getting worse. 

(I’ll spare you the gory details…)

We will be rescheduling the postponed shows to later in the year. 

So sorry for the inconvenience but look forward to seeing you then.


Existing ticket holders are reassured that all tickets will be valid for the rescheduled date. Any customers unable to come to the revised date can contact their point of purchase for a refund.
