She still has it !!!!!! ❤️
Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders are exceptional. I'm a fan, a huge fan. I've followed this band for decades now. This band has seen tragedy in the past, but its latest incarnation is as great as it gets. I've seen them twice this tour and I'm trying my best to see them again before they leave the USA! THEY ROCK!
