The Pretenders have postponed and rescheduled their upcoming UK tour dates and added new shows to their calendar for 2024.

Chrissie Hynde and co previously announced a string of intimate gigs across theatres in the UK in February and March, but now their shoes have been moved to autumn this year.

The tour will now see them play the likes of the London Palladium on 22nd and 23rd October, with a third and final date added at the iconic venue on the following night on 24th October.
