It will be a battle of the bangs this summer as Cat Power heads out on tour with The Pretenders. The month-long stint will take the bands to wineries and casinos along with the run-of-the-mill venues.
Juliette Lewis has also been tapped as an opener. Tickets for many shows go on sale June 15.
The Pretenders are out supporting their latest effort, “Break Up The Concrete,” their ninth album released last October. The band on the road will comprise of the legendary Chrissie Hynde, Martin Chambers, James Walbourne, Eric Heywood, and Nick Wilkinson.
Cat Power, aka Chan Marshall, released “Jukebox,” her second collection of covers, in January last year. Things have been been pretty quiet since. She’ll play a trio of shows in July in South America, and has no festival dates lined up.
Juliette Lewis, who is mostly known in her other life as an actress, will release her new effort “Terra Incognita” on Sept. 1.
