Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers Plot "40th Anniversary Tour"

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers Plot "40th Anniversary Tour"
On the heels of announcing two massive vinyl box sets back in October, the career retrospection will continue for Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers clean through until 2017 with the announcement of their lengthy "40th Anniversary Tour."

Kicking off in April, the band will be on the road for the majority of the summer, primarily touring through the United States. As you can find below, a handful dates will see support from Eagles axeman Joe Walsh or country songwriter Chris Stapleton.

The tour was announced yesterday evening (December 8) on The Tonight Show through a silly comedy bit featuring Jimmy Fallon that you can find below. As of right now, the band will make only one stop north of the border, playing the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on July 15.

Tickets for all dates will go on sale on December 16, with further information available through Petty's website here. Find the current list of tour dates below.

UPDATE (2/7, 11:45 a.m. EST): Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers have now announced another Canadian show in Vancouver. It will take place on August 17. You can see the updates schedule below.
