After three-plus decades as one of the most recognizable and respected female rockers in the world, it’s hard to believe that just this year, at age 62, did Pretenders leader Chrissie Hynde release her debut solo album. That album, Stockholm, finds Hynde exploring some new, pop-leaning territory and even collaborating with former tennis star John McEnroe on guitar (Neil Young joins on guitar as well). But no matter the material, Hynde is completely at home on the stage. With her final announced show (as of now) tonight in London, here’s a look back at her recent performance at New York’s Beacon Theatre.
