Petty Reveals More Summer Tour Dates

April 20, 2006, 2:25 PM ET

Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will kick off a summer North American tour June 9 in Charlotte, N.C. Former Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio will open the first eight shows, which, as previously reported, will be followed by six double-bills with Pearl Jam through July 2-3 in Denver.

A second leg in July and August will feature the Allman Brothers Band; at deadline, only four of those shows have been confirmed and will also feature the Derek Trucks Band. A third leg with opening acts to be announced will get underway in September and encompass a Sept. 17 headlining appearance at the Austin City Limits Festival.

In related news, the new Petty songs "Saving Grace" and "Big Weekend" will premiere as part of the NBA playoffs telecasts, beginning Saturday (April 22) on ABC and ESPN. The tracks will be found on Petty's upcoming solo album, "Highway Companion," due this summer.

Other familiar Petty tunes such as "Learning to Fly," "I Won't Back Down" and "Runnin' Down a Dream" will be heard in the opening segments of the broadcasts. Newly shot live footage will also be packaged with game highlights for broadcast in NBA arenas.

I saw Petty at Darien Lake with the Black Crowes opening and I didnt enjoy it too much (Petty anyway, the Crowes were sweet)...I dunno, I could predict his entire setlist and for some reason that bothered me...

But he is definately someone to see at least once, and I will probably be at this Darien Show giving him a second chance to wow me...plus Trey opening doesnt hurt ;)

I've got to believe that the Allmans will be headlining this show. I've seen the Allmans at Darien Lake a few times, and they fill the place with an opening band.

I stand corrected after visiting ABB's web site ... I'm not meaning to be critical of Tom Petty, but it's kind of sad that ABB with Derek Trucks Band need to open for anybody.

Here is the info from the ABB site:

Event Date: Tuesday, August 15, 2006

Start Time: 6:00 PM *

Band: Allman Brothers Band

Venue: Darien Lake Performing Arts Center

Notes: As Special Guests of Tom Petty; The Derek Trucks Band also appears

Parking Lots Open: 3:00 PM

Peace, Mark
