Absolutely a must see and must own collection for fans of the legendary band The Pretenders and it's extraordinary lead singer Chrissie Hynde, MVD Visuals Pretenders With Friends captures the band live at the Decades of Rock Arena in Atlantic City, NJ where special guests join Hynde and company to sing and share songs. Guests include Iggy Pop, who sings "Candy" with Chrissie and Shirley Manson of Garbage, whose voice steals the show whenever she appears. She sings "I'm Only Happy When It Rains." Incubus joins in with "Message of Love" and there is an encore where all the artists and Kings of Leon sing "Middle of the Road."

The complete playlist is detailed as follows:

The three disc set includes the complete concert in high definition on Blu-ray Disc and standard definition on DVD as well as the show ready to listen to on audio CD. The discs are all NTSC region free and come housed in a glossy gate fold large CD jewel case in size digipack set with a glossy booklet containing liner notes and information within the sleeve too. It is a very good looking set.

Bonus features includes interviews, trailers, stills and more. The picture quality is sharp as one would expect on both the Blu-ray and DVD and both feature an outstanding English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Soundtrack too. The audio CD simply rocks. 

The Pretenders With Friends: Special Edition Blu-ray + DVD + CD Version: Three Disc Set is now available at retailers on and offline courtesy of MVD Visual and it is highly recommended for fans of this legendary band.
