Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers have announced their 2014 North American tour and the July 29th release of their first new studio album in four years on Reprise Records, Hypnotic Eye. The tour, featuring very special guest Steve Winwood, will begin in San Diego, CA on August 3rd. The tour 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 2014 concerts will go on sale at Ticketmaster.com and other select ticketing services on Saturday, May 31. Full on-sale information is available on TomPetty.com.
Every 2014 Tour ticket will include Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers’ new album, Hypnotic Eye.
Hypnotic Eye was recently described by Rolling Stone magazine as “maximum rock & roll” and “a decisive return to the concise Sixties-rock classicism of his first great New Wave era albums.” Check out the album and tour announcement video for a preview.
The new album Hypnotic Eye will be available in CD, digital, high-resolution Blu-ray audio and vinyl formats. The vinyl will be available as 1-LP or as 2-LPs inclusive of an additional track not available in any other format. Beginning June 3, fans can pre-order the vinyl, CD and Blu-ray audio editions on TomPetty.com and Amazon and can pre-order the digital edition on ITunes and Amazon.
Fans who preorder the digital album on ITunes and Amazon beginning June 3rd will get an instant download of the first of several album tracks to be revealed prior to the release date.
Members of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers’ Highway Companions Fan Club will be able to participate in special ticket presales. Members will also receive a CD copy of Hypnotic Eye plus a digital copy of an exclusive new live album, Live 2013, that features eleven tracks recorded during the Heartbreakers’ 2013 Theatre residencies in New York and Los Angeles, plus tracks recorded at last year’s Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival – all hand-picked by Tom Petty.
