If you’ve never seen Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers perform live, then these 2017 tour dates are your next big chance. Petty has announced a 30-city tour to mark the 40th anniversary of the band’s debut album.

Petty announced the tour news Thursday night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. (It’s a funny clip worth watching). A must-see event, though, is the 2007 documentary called Runnin’ Down a Dream, directed by Peter Bogdanovich. It’s running' right now on streaming Netflix. (I’ve seen it maybe - oh - 10 times in the last few months. But be prepared to digest it in chunks. It’s about 4 hours long). 

Joe Walsh will be the opening act on most of the tour stops (Chris Stapleton will open others), which includes a May 6 date at Tampa’s Amalie Arena. Tickets for most shows go on sale Dec. 16 at 10 a.m. Pre-sale for Petty fan club members begins Dec. 14 at 10 a.m. 

Sad to see his hometown of Gainesville, Fla., didn’t make the full list of tour dates. That’s a bucket-list show for me.
