Chrissie Hynde returns to Akron with solo album and (and mostly) new band

By Malcolm Abram Published: November 14, 2014


Chrissie Hynde, rock icon and Akron native returned to her "beautiful home town" Thursday night at the Akron Civic Theatre with a new band, her name on the marquee and an album's worth of new songs from her solo album Stockholm.

Hynde, 62 was in fine voice throughout the 90 minute set and her Will Travel Band featuring Pretenders holdover guitarist James Walbourne gave both the Stockholm songs and the wealth of Pretenders tunes a healthy injection of rocking energy.
