Tom Petty is hitting the road to celebrate 4 amazing decades with the Heartbreakers. He’s not only lined up a bunch of tour dates, but he’s got some special guests up his sleeve as well.
One of those confirmed guests is none other than classic rock icon, Joe Walsh!
The tour kicked off this last weekend in Oklahoma City and it looked nothing short of rockin’
Tom will work his way around the south, mid, and north east before making it’s way west with those dates expected to be announced sometime soon.
Although Petty has hinted that the 40th anniversary shows might serve as his final extended tour trek, guitarist Mike Campbell isn’t ready to stop — and he doesn’t think Petty is either.
“Tom is really happy. The band is playing great. I think we’re sounding better than we’ve ever sounded, and we’re inspired,” said Campbell prior to the tour’s launch. “It’s very exciting for us. And the band is really rising to the occasion and everybody is in a great place right now. I think we can keep going for awhile.”
Unfortunately for us, the closest the tour gets is Tampa and West Palm.
