May 20, 2014


Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers 
Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers have announced their 2014 North American tour as well as the July 29 release of their first new studio album in four years, Hypnotic Eye. Petty recently told Rolling Stone of the new material: "I knew I wanted to do a Rock & Roll record. We hadn't made a straight hard-rockin' record, from beginning to end, in a long time." Hypnotic Eye will be available in CD, digital, high-resolution Blu-ray audio and vinyl formats. The vinyl will be available as one-LP or as two-LPs inclusive of an additional track not available in any other format. It will be out via Reprise Records.

The tour, featuring special guest Steve Winwood, will begin in San Diego on August 3. It includes already announced headline performances at San Francisco's Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival and at the Lockn' Festival in Arrington, VA. On Labor Day weekend, for the first time ever, the band will perform at Boston's Fenway Park. Tickets to many of the shows will go on sale on starting Saturday, May 31.
