Tom Petty Announces 40th Anniversary Tour In Fake Fallon Interview

Tom Petty has been performing with his backing band the Heartbreakers for four full decades now, and next year, the classic-rock institution will celebrate its 40th anniversary with a big North American tour. Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh will open most of the dates, but a few lucky crowds will get burly country superstar Chris Stapleton instead. Petty is also planning to release two gigantic box sets featuring the band’s entire discography on 180-gram vinyl. And Petty announced the tour last night on The Tonight Show by doing a goofy comedy bit with Jimmy Fallon. Watch that bit and check out the tour dates below.
