First European tour in 20 years, really?

[www.tompetty.com]

""Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers are excited to announce a series of North American concerts in 2012 prior to embarking on their first tour of Europe in 20 years.

The North American tour includes the band's first ever show at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival where they will headline the first weekend of the annual event on Saturday, April 28.

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers will also perform in the Canadian provinces of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia for the first time. The band will play in St. John's, NL on June 3 and in Halifax, NS on a date to be announced shortly.

Following the Canadian dates, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers will head to Europe for a tour which includes their already announced headlining performance at the Isle of Wight Festival on June 22. Shows in Ireland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, England, Switzerland, France, and Italy are currently included on the itinerary.""

I just don't think that Tom Petty will fill the Hallenstadion in Zurich at all. He is well known by insiders but not to a lot of people.
I have seen him once in Mannheim Rosengarten ca 1000 people first row. It was one of the most amazing concerts. The stage was as low as my belt and now security front. Just us and the Band.

only 12 dates in europe after 20 years?
no spain and no eastern europe.. there must be a reason, i think petty's promoters are afraid not many people will attend the gigs. it seems a low- risk schedule. times have changed.
I will go to lucca, 3 hours from home.

They aren't playing London? Bit suprised as I would have thought its one the places where they would be guaranteed a good crowd after so many years away. Maybe this is just a foot in the water tour and they will be back properly soon after.

Have now booked tix to Isle Of Wight Fest!!! Tom Petty and the heartbreakers plus The BOSS!!!

Maybe they have already been booked for an opening / share the bill act in these places.

It is a long hot summer, I would be willing to bet once Tom gets over there he will stay a while.

The only thing I dont like about Tom Petty live is he is kind of militant about people taking vidoe and pictures.... and although it may have changed since I last looked, he is also not very forgiving of having his stuff posted on youtube. Unlike our beloved Stones (who allow their songs to be posted every which way people want) Petty's songs are harder to find on youtube... or at least they were last time I tried.

Yeah it's a bummer. Hopefully they add some shows. The tour I should've really went on was last year's tour promoting Mojo...great album and they did a bunch of songs from it.

Mick on Tom Petty in an interview with Liz Derringer ("High Times" magazine, 1979):

High Times: "Well, Tom Petty gets up there and just stands there and just sings his songs."

Jagger: "Does he really? I’ve never seen him. I like the record."

High Times: "Oh, I love him. I love to watch him ‘cause he just emanates charisma."

Jagger: "Yeah, but if you’ve got that thing, `emanates charisma' — put that down in journalistic, cliché claptrap." (Laughs.)

High Times: "No, I was going to say them both in two sentences, but he emanates sex and has a lot of charisma just by standing there."

Jagger: "I know what you mean. I’d suck his cock afterwards." (Laughter.)

High Times: "He might give you a hard on, I don’t know." (Laughter.) "No, he’s real sweet."

Jagger: "Does he give you a hard-on?" (Leers.)

High Times: "Yeah, he does."

Oh... well... in that case ... allow me to adjust that answer....
uhmmmmm...




It is a long hot summer, so there will be plenty of time for Tom to go over there, do a few dates, and get right back to the states to take care of you.

20 yrs since he played in Oslo in Oslo Spektrum. I might skip the Oslo one and do 2-3 indoor.
Norwegian Wood Festival is probably the most cozy one in Europe, but weather weather weather.
The "boss" of the festival is a huge Stones fan btw!

Well if Europe doesn't want to see Tom send him to Australia as he hasn't been here since 1986 as Bob Dylan's band.

Update for 2013...
...besides a few shows and festivals here and there,

Tom & the boys will be doing 5 shows at the Beacon in NY in May and 6 shows at the Henry Fonda in L.A. in June.

...hope they don't conflict with the Stones west coast dates.

To digress: lesbian comedian Margaret Cho recently listed the "top five bands lesbians love" and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers came out on top.

MARGARET CHO: "1. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The ultimate macho band that lesbians love—and my favorite—are Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. It comes down to the song "Here Comes My Girl" because it's the ultimate lesbian love song. I've always found a way to dedicate this song on the radio to every girl I have been with or sung it to her. All Tom Petty songs are great, but this song is just the thing that goes through my mind when I see a woman I love. It's the song I'm going to sing and feel, and then cry to when it's over."
