As if a Petty tour weren't enough to get excited about, that's a pretty stellar list of supporting acts. Wish they would come my way!

Well, the dates don't work well, and neither do the venues. Dang.

which of the usual large-touring-act-venues in the greater boston area is now going by the comcast center moniker?

hartford is closer, but if i'm gonna shell out that much for a ticket (which would end up being three tickets cos this is something mom and brother will go to as well, and they never paid me back for those springsteen tickets), i'd rather the opener be someone who isn't going to make me puke.

Its the former Great Woods/Tweeter Center. So pumped for that show with MMJ . This would be the third time I've seen them, twice as a support act though, but I've never seen Petty so count me in .

Finally got my tickets, but I'm a bit nervous about the free .mp3 download of Mojo, not seeing anything about it on my receipt .

But, I bumped the thread to say there's another song from Mojo streaming on the site. "First Flash of Freedom":

Tom Petty.com Tour (it's under the map on the right)

Obviously they're really going for bluesy on this album. I think I like it?

We're going to the SPAC (Saratoga Performing Arts Center) show with Crosby, Still and Nash as the warm-up. Should be lots of fun!

Hell yeah.

I was thinking about bumping this the other day. I've heard about 5 or so songs off the record. I like what I've heard of "I Should Have Known It" and "Something Good Coming." And "Good Enough" is...good enough. HAhaha.

Anyway, I'll be hitting up that stream. Thanks for the scoop. I will say that the overall vibe of the new material is not exactly what made me fall in love with Petty in the first place, but I'll wait to hear the whole thing before passing final judgment.

Also, never did buy tickets to the show at the UC. It looks like I can pull up two 300 level seats for about $60 each. I don't know. Decisions, decisions. If I can find a way to stumble into some money, it will be an easy decision.

Poo. Wish I'd known about this sooner-they'll be in St. Paul on June 22nd, but there's no way I'll be able to get tickets for it right now . Hopefully they'll come back sometime down the line. I've never seen Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, I'd love to catch them live.

Heard a couple of the new songs when they performed on "SNL" a few weeks ago. Not too bad, I rather liked them. Will have to check out the rest of the stuff online, definitely.

Also, I know this discussion's a few months old, but I just want to say that Wildflowers=awesomeness. One of my all-time favorite albums by anybody. Course, I heard a lot of the songs from it on the radio when I was a kid, so maybe that adds to the soft spot I have for the album.

What section are y'all in? If I pull the trigger on tickets, I'll try to get as close to there as possible so that I can buy you guys $9 beers (or get you guys to buy me $9 beers).

Also, I just looked at a couple of the recent set lists. Me likey.

Listen to Her Heart!
