The Pretenders played for a packed house at the Louisville Palace Tuesday Night. Fans jumped out of their seats and started cheering the second the band hit the stage. Chrissie Hynde sounded absolutely fantastic. Her voice was perfect, unlike a lot of aging rockers. She came out in a red fringe jacket but shed after two songs for skinny jeans and a t-shirt look that was perfect for the punk goddess that she is.
They played for well over an hour and came out for two encores. Some of the songs they played included a lot of hits off of their first album; Precious, Up the Neck, Stop your Sobbing, and the Kid. They also played later hits like Middle of the Road, Back on the Chain Gang, Don’t Get me Wrong, and I’ll Stand by You. All in all it was a great night!
