Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers visit venues big and small this summer
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers have already secured a headlining gig at this June’s Bonnaroo. Now we’re finding out what the band is doing for the rest of its summer vacation.
The sextet’s six-week tour will include, in addition to B-roo, appearances at The Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Ala.; the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Del.; and Milwaukee’s Summerfest.
The band’s mixing it up this summer: in addition to the festival gigs, and a handful of arena shows, the Heartbreakers will play five nights at New York’s Beacon Theater, May 20-26, and six nights at Los Angeles’ Fonda Theater, spanning June 3-11.
The Heartbreakers are in the midst of recording their first album since 2010’s “Mojo.” The new set will come out next year in Reprise Records.
