Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers will play shows throughout North America this summer, including headline appearances at major festivals, arenas and amphitheaters, plus multi-show residencies at the intimate Beacon Theatre in New York City and The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles. Pre-sale links and info for the tour can be found here.
Festival stops include headline appearances include a return to the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival (where Petty & Co. headlined in 2006) as well as the band’s first appearances at The Hangout Music Festival and Firefly Music Festival.
The very special New York and Los Angeles residencies are composed of five concerts at New York’s historic Beacon Theatre and six concerts in the cozy confines of Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre.
Over the years Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers have gone back to their roots – returning to the intimacy of small venues such as their historic twenty show run in 1997 at the Fillmore in San Francisco, their five night stand at Chicago’s Vic Theatre in 2003 and, more recently, two nights in 2011 at the Plaza del Sol Performance Hall at Cal State Northridge to benefit LA local public radio station KCSN.
Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers’ 2013 Summer Tour comes as the band takes a break from the studio where they are recording their highly anticipated follow up to 2010′s Mojo. The as-yet-untitled new record will be released on Reprise Records in 2014.
