Tom Petty to Join Steve Winwood for US Summer Tour 2008

Everybody who loves rock has to love Tom Petty, author of classics like “Refugee’, ‘Don’t do me like that’ and ‘The waiting’; He’s been recording with The Heartbreakers for 30 years, has joined the Travelling Wilburies and released a solo album, Highway Companion in 2006.
He actually also reformed hi pre-Heartbreakers, Mudcrutch in 2007 and they are set to release a new album this year.

Tom is a great advocate of artistic freedom in rock, railing against the corporatisation of rock and the demise of independent radio stations (we are still alive, Tom !).

Tom Petty and Heartbreakers are set to join Steve Winwood (Blind Faith, Traffic) for a Summer Tour in the US this year, starting in May and finishing in August. This will be abit of a surprise for his fans, given that his 2006 tour was billed as his last.

I don't know what happened with that first comment...just wanted to say that based on seeing Winwood at Crossroads las summer, this is a must see show for Winwood fans. Throw Tom Petty in and you have a killer bill here.
