Fresh off October's Break Up the Concrete, their first new studio album in six years, veteran rockers The Pretenders are not back on the chain gang but rather back on the road, with a headlining tour coming to the Grove of Anaheim on March 8. Surely a show to delight old-school fans and those that discovered their music through video games alike (singing "Brass in Pocket" in Rock Band = fun).
On sale information and ticket prices still to come. If you're looking for a taste of Pretenders to come, they're are also playing Indie 103.1's "Wreck the Halls" event on Dec. 10, along with Bloc Party, CSS and Black Kids at Club Nokia in Los Angeles.
Video of their recent (and great) performance of "Boots of Chinese Plastic" on Letterman--concrete (teehee) evidence that they've still "got it"--after the jump!
