tom-pettyAlthough you will still have to wait for 2 seasons to pass.  News from Uncut who report: “Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers have announced their only European date of 2017. They will play Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park on Sunday July 9, as part of the band’s 40th anniversary. This will be Petty’s first UK date since two nights at the Royal Albert Hall in June 2012. They will be supported by Stevie Nicks; a long-standing friend of the band and occasional collaborator. “In 1976, I’d been in Fleetwood Mac for about a year when I heard Tom Petty’s debut,” Nicks told Rolling Stone in 2010. “I became such a fan that if I hadn’t been in a band myself, I would have joined that one.” They will also be joined on the bill by The Lumineers.
