Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, one of the most iconic bands in American music history, have announced the first dates of their 40th Anniversary Tour, which includes a stop at Tampa’s AMALIE® Arena on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at 8:00 PM. Joe Walsh will appear as very special guest.
Tom Petty announced the tour on SiriusXM’s “Tom Petty Radio” and also on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”. The primarily U.S. tour will begin on April 20, 2017 in Oklahoma City and continues throughout the summer with more dates, including on the west coast, still to be announced.
To further commemorate the 40th anniversary of their self-titled debut album, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers are releasing two companion vinyl box sets featuring their entire studio album repertoire. Both box sets are available today via UMe and Reprise/Warner Bros. All LPs in the limited-edition box sets have been pressed on 180-gram vinyl with replica artwork. Several of these albums have been out of print on vinyl for years and most albums have been re-mastered for this release.
