Yeah, that’s Chrissie, alright. Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders. One of the most sultry, uncompromising, enduring voices in rock & roll.
Over the years, we’ve seen Chrissie with the Pretenders playing at all sorts of venues around Nippertown, from the big (Saratoga Performing Arts Center) to the small (the long-gone but fondly remembered J.B. Scott’s), but we’ve never seen her like this.
She’s teamed up with Welsh rocker J.P. Jones, and together they recorded their brand new debut album, “Fidelity!” – the first album that Chrissie has ever recorded outside of the Pretenders.
JP, Chrissie & the Fairground Boys are heading into the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy at 8pm on Wednesday, October 6. Opening the show is singer-songwriter Amy Correia in support of her new album, “You Go Your Way.” Tix are $29 and $35.
But guess what?!? We have a pair of tickets for this show that we’re going to give away for FREE to a lucky Nippertown reader. How to enter? It’s simple – just leave a comment below. Please leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. The winner will be selected at random and notified on Tuesday. Good luck!. The Random Number Generator has spoken: congratulations to Robert M!
