tom petty announces 2012 tour dates!

December 14, 2011

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers decided to give me my Christmas gift early this year by announcing their 2012 tour dates today. The band will do a Southern swing through the U.S. starting in April and then hop the pond for the month of June for an itinerary that includes a stop at the legendary Isle of Wight Festival. I’m sure European fans are excited, as it’s been years since Tom and the boys visited them. I personally risked getting fired this morning by spending several hours investigating flight and lodging options for many of the dates but haven’t yet settled on which one(s) I’ll make it to.

There’s also a special Twitter event tomorrow afternoon that you don’t want to miss. Tom (@tompetty) will be on Twitter from 2:30 to 3:30 PT to answer fan questions. Use hashtag #tompettyTCS to follow or join in on the conversation.
