The Pretty Reckless is fronted by singer Taylor Momsen, who was a child actor and model, including notable credits in "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" and "Gossip Girls." Momsen has always insisted that her first love was music, not acting, and, in 2009, Momsen shocked the world when she announced she would leave TV and film. The Pretty Reckless released their debut album, "Light Me Up" (No. 10; U.S. Alt Rock) in 2010 and quickly hit the road, becoming one of rock's busiest bands. The Pretty Reckless was part of the 2010 Warped Tour before headlining The Medicine and Light Me Up Tours respectively. The band is well regarded for its aggressive, live hard rock sound with a concert that often features Momsen singing while wearing dark outfits, heavy makeup and stripper boots. The band will continue to tour Europe extensively to promote their new release, "Going to Hell." Momsen is highly regarded for her talented voice on-stage yet isn't afraid to get dark with her lyrics. Tickets to the upcoming "Going To Hell" tour are expected to be a hot commodity as The Pretty Reckless have developed a strong and faithful following in Europe, despite being together for less than five years.

The band officially formed in 2009, but Momsen had been working on a rock project with Kato Khandwala, who would produce the group's debut album, since 2007. She has cited Joan Jett and Kurt Cobain as personal influences. "Light Me Up" was critically acclaimed and features the lead single, "Make Me Wanna Die" (No. 1 single; UK Rock), in addition to "My Medicine" and "Goin' Down." The band promoted the album heavily with nearly non-stop touring for four years, bringing venues like House of Blues (San Diego) to capacity, while working on a followup -- "Going to Hell." They are one of the more fiery bands when touring.

    Pretty Reckless-Bowery

    by Chris81877 on 12/17/22Bowery Ballroom - New York

    I hadn’t seen TPR since 2011. I’ve loved all their albums but haven’t been able to see them. I’m glad I waited and got to see them in NYC. You could feel the love they have for their home city, as well as their love for performing. Their set was also amazing—a great mix of all their albums. Catch them when you can.

    What a show!

    by Fuents on 12/15/22Bowery Ballroom - New York

    I stood out in the freezing cold for 3 hours to make sure I was right up front and boy, was it worth it! Taylor Momsen is not only gorgeous but damn, is she an incredible front woman. Couldn’t keep my eyes off of her and their music just makes you want to move. To see such a big act in such a small intimate setting was incredible!

    Best rock concert I ever saw.

    by William deJong-Lambert on 12/15/22Bowery Ballroom - New York

    Swear to God I'm 54 years old. My first ever concert was 1981, the Rolling Stones, Prince opening up, and I've seen a lot of shows since then. But The Pretty Reckless were the best I have ever seen.

    Fantastic show! Taylor Momsen at her BEST

    by Holt Nicholas on 12/14/22Bowery Ballroom - New York

    This performance was at a small venue taking The Pretty Reckless back to what it was like when they got started…..Taylor Momsen’s words. The more intimate feeling of the smaller crowd in the smaller setting was fantastic! Their larger venue performances are great. This performance was SPECIAL! I loved it!!!
