Some of the most iconic ladies of rock are back to show the newcomers how it’s done. The re-emergence of these golden women of vintage rock coincides with this summer’s festival season. Debbie Harry is set to play Glastonbury in June whilst Chrissie Hynde is heading to Latitude in July.

Harry, Hynde and Patty Smith have all recently released UK tour dates, to coincide with their new album releases. At this rate they’ll be teaching the men a thing or two about how comebacks are done. Nevertheless, it’s already been mentioned that the musicians will be compared to their modern day counterparts. The likes of Iggy Azalea, Beyoncé, Rhianna and Miley will no doubtedly be first on the list.

For these mature rock stars, the switch to current musical marketing strategies has come as a bit of a surprise. Artists and musicians are publicised on many different platforms that stem far from just their talents. It isn’t just about their music anymore, but who they’re wearing and how they’ve been sexualised for the masses. Back in the day, it was the artists who had the upper hand, not just the ringleaders of the multi-billion dollar industry.

Despite this, Kate Bush still managed to sell out all 22 of her London shows within a mere 15 minutes. But in the age of denim hot pants, Instagram and Terry Richardson photography how are the rest of these 1970’s rockers keeping up? The times have changed dramatically, and to be on top of this industry, you need a unique niche. Here’s to a small shred of hope that some of these iconic ladies could claw back a bit of media attention and alter the way we consume popular music.
