Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers coming to the Amway Center in Orlando




The big news about Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' 2012 tour announcement today is that they'll be touring Europe for the first time in 20 years.

Here in Florida, though, all we want to know is: Will Petty grace us with a home-state show? 

Looks like the answer is yes. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will perform May 3 at Orlando's Amway Center. (He'll also be at Estero's Germain Arena on May 1.) Ticket details are still in the works. We'll keep you posted . ***UPDATE*** Tickets are $35-$85, and they go onsale Jan. 6. Click here.

While we do wish the Gainesville rocker was coming to Tampa on this tour, we can't be too upset. After all, he did deliver a massive show at the St. Pete Times Forum in September 2010. Click here for a review.

If you want to ask Petty anything about the upcoming tour -- or just bug him about a Traveling Wilburys reunion -- he'll be taking questions on Twitter starting at 5:30 p.m. Eastern on Thursday (12/15). Click here for details.
