Kid - Tribute to The Pretenders


May 22 Sat
Kid - Tribute to The Pretenders8:00 PM
The Musician, Leicester

Kid perform an authentic and powerful tribute to the music of one of the world’s best-loved bands - The Pretenders.

In the studio, The Pretenders crafted perfect pop; radio-friendly but oh so cool. Live, they were wilder and heavier and Kid perfectly capture both these sides of The Pretenders’ personality.

Drawing upon an inspirational back catalogue of Pretenders classics, Kid replicate the sound and feel of a Pretenders live show with power and panache. All the hits are there including; Brass in Pocket, Back on the Chain Gang, Don’t Get Me Wrong, Talk of the Town, I’ll Stand By You, Stop Your Sobbing and, of course, the staggeringly beautiful Kid. Augmenting this cavalcade of hits, Kid rock the stage with a selection of The Pretenders’ most popular album tracks.

Leading the group is the dynamic Rachy Jones who recreates Chrissie Hynde’s distinctive, aching, bruised-yet-defiant vocals with passionate authenticity. Rock solid rhythm guitar guaranteed.

Rachy is ably supported by Paulo on lead guitar, Balacqua on bass and Sharp on drums. Together, these four experienced and talented musicians reproduce the timeless, classic music of The Pretenders with precision, pride and passion.
