TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS ADD THIRD AND FINAL HOLLYWOOD BOWL SHOW MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 25

FIRST TWO DATES SOLD OUT

Following the rapid sell out of both their Thursday, September 21 and Friday, September 22 shows at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers have confirmed a third night at the historic venue on Monday, September 25. Tickets for Monday, September 25 will go on sale Tuesday, July 25 at 10 a.m. PST.

The performances mark the finale of the band’s extensive North American tour celebrating the 40th anniversary of their self-titled debut. Lucinda Williams will join as the band’s very special guest for all three Hollywood Bowl shows.

The tour continues to receive widespread critical acclaim:

“The show concluded with a spirited run through ‘American Girl.’ After all these years, the song should qualify as a surrogate National Anthem. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, after all, are already recognized by stadiums full of people as a national treasure.” —Chicago Sun-Times

“There are few singer/songwriters that can craft a three-chord song with more meaning and depth than Tom Petty. His songs like ‘American Girl’ and ‘Free Fallin’ burrow themselves deep in the soul and simultaneously uplift with their simple beauty while quietly devastating as they unravel and lay bare human failing.” —Huffington Post

“Few artists have had such a consistent output, coupled with an enduring appeal” —Ottawa Citizen

“the group is ending its touring legacy on a high— and with plenty of reminders of why it's endured.” —Chicago Tribune

“I know Petty was already a revered and beloved rock hero, but from talking to musicians I’ve gotten the sense that Petty is now rightfully viewed as more of a true icon…Petty has entered into that hallowed terrain of artists whose music is the soundtrack of your life and whose two-hour sets are filled with hit songs that take you back to a place and time, capturing a moment and making you smile or wistful depending on the tune and the memory.” —Forbes

“Petty and the Heartbreakers are that rare group— like the Stones, the Boss, Fleetwood Mac and just a few others— who can fill an entire concert with certified mega hits spanning decades.” —Hartford Courant

“Petty essentially is classic rock music. To see him on stage is to see the radio come to life…Petty has lived in all of the radios of our lives, even in the age of the algorithm playlist.” —Denver Post

“All-around national treasure” —Yahoo Music

“One of America’s most enduring rock and roll bands.” —Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“Nearly every song aroused a sing-along, some more uproarious than others, but each evinced the durability of Petty’s songs, which, no matter their age, felt timeless or independent of the decades in which they were born…The Heartbreakers are America’s Rolling Stones: one of its most respectable, esteemed and longest-running rock acts.” —Kansas City Star

“It was remarkable to consider just how well these songs have aged through the years. So many of these classic Petty cuts seem to exist in the ether, and the very idea of a world without his music is hard to fathom.” —American Songwriter

“It’s a testament to the depth of Tom Petty’s catalog that he can get away with playing ‘I Won’t Back Down’ (recorded by no less than Johnny Cash) and ‘Free Fallin’ (performed probably zillions of times at karaoke bars worldwide) as the sixth and seventh songs of a two-hour set. The number of living popular music performers for whom those two classics would not automatically have to be the show-closing anthems is probably in the single digits…He gave lovely introductions to the Heartbreakers, one of the best rock ‘n’ roll bands ever” —Austin American Statesman

“Petty’s understated genius applies not just to his personal demeanor, but to his music. He’s always accessible, without ever being dumb or boring.” —Minnesota Public Radio/The Current

“A two-hour-plus rock ‘n’ roll history lesson, replete with audience participation and much gratitude from the man in the spotlight.” —Atlanta Journal Constitution

“Not too many rock bands are able to stick around that long, and few of the ones that do last that long can’t still pack arenas and make great albums. Petty and his bandmates still do that.” —Bradenton Herald

“It’s time we start claiming ownership of the greatest American rock band of all time: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers…Petty's an icon, a Hall of Famer, one of the all-time great rock songsmiths.” —Tampa Bay Times

“So why was Saturday’s concert by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers so satisfying…Because Petty has written and recorded so many songs that have become part of the classic-rock songbook.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Delivering a retrospective show that not only rekindled memories but also stood as a spirited tribute to a sound unbound by fleeting style.” —The Columbus Dispatch

Additionally, Peter Wolf, The Lumineers and The Shelters will perform as special guests on coming dates this summer. See below or www.tompetty.com for details.
