Tom Petty Announces New Album, Tour

February 25, 2010  |  5:34pm

After more than 30 years of making music, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers are still at it, preparing for the release of their first album in eight years. Mojo will be released this spring on Reprise Records, and the band’s heading out on a North American tour in support of the record. The summer tour will include opening performances from My Morning Jacket, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Joe Cocker, ZZ Top and Drive-By Truckers.

Tour tickets go on sale March 8 (on LiveNation.com), and the price of a ticket gets you more than just entry to the concert. Each ticket comes with a download code for two Mojo tracks (“First Flash Of Freedom” and “Good Enough,” the latter of which you can also stream on TomPetty.com right now), and when the album is released, ticket buyers will be able to download the rest of the tracks. After the tour wraps up, they’ll also receive recordings of some live tracks.
