Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ 2012 tour will include stops at New Orleans’ Jazz & Heritage Festival, as well as England’s Isle of Wight Festival.
The outing starts April 19 at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colo., before moving south to Jazz Fest on April 28. Check out more Jazz Fest headliners here.
Remarkably, the tour will be the band’s first European tour in 20 years. Additionally, this marks the Heartbreakers’ Jazz Fest debut and their first gigs in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, Canada in their 35-year history.
If you want to talk to Petty about the tour and anything else, he will take part in a Q&A with fans via Twitter on Thursday, Dec. 15 at 2:30 p.m. PT. Find out more details at tompetty.com.
U.S. ticket and special guest information will be announced soon.
Now for the sad news: A rep for the band says it is "highly doubtful" there will be new music from the band before the tour. The Heartbreakers' last set, "Mojo," came out in June 2010.
