The group also opened for Guns N’ Roses at this year’s edition of BST Hyde Park in London before making an appearance at BBC Radio 2 In The Park in Leicester.

Next year, The Pretenders will open for Foo Fighters on select dates of their ‘Everything Or Nothing’ US tour.

In other news, Hynde recently admitted in an interview that she feels “guilty” over the deaths of her former Pretenders bandmates Pete Farndon and James Honeyman-Scott. “[…] There’s an element of wishing you’d done better,” she said.
