Tom Petty

After seeing Paul McCartney on Hollywood Blvd. last summer and then Paul Simon at The Forum this past February, my list of haven’t-seen-but-must-see artists has been cut from three names to just one, and thanks to this morning’s announcement of a new Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers tour, 2014 might just be the year I need to start making a new list.

This morning, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers announced a 2014 North American tour as well as their first new studio album in four years, Hypnotic Eye, out July 29th on Reprise Records. The tour kicks off in San Diego on August 3rd and will feature very special guest Steve Winwood. Los Angeles-area fans will have two chances to catch the tour, first on October 7th at the Honda Center in Anaheim, then on October 10th at The Forum in Los Angeles (where you’ll find my smiling face barring a catastrophe of epic proportions).

Tickets for both Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers LA-area shows go on sale Saturday, May 31st, at 10 AM through Ticketmaster, and every 2014 tour ticket purchase will include a copy of Hypnotic Eye.
