Credit: Joel BernsteinTom Petty and the Heartbreakers will launch the second of two planned North American legs of their 40th anniversary tour this Thursday in Chicago, and now the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees have just announced a new concert taking place September 21 at the famous Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles that will be the final stop on the tour.

Tickets for the show will go on sale to the general public this Thursday, June 29, at 10 a.m. PT. This will mark the seventh time Petty and his group will perform at the Hollywood Bowl.

Acclaimed alt-country singer/songwriter Lucinda Williams will be Petty and the Heartbreakers’ special guest at the event. Williams shares a long history with Tom and his band: They recorded Williams’ song “Change the Locks” for their 1996 album, Songs and Music from “She’s the One”; Lucinda served as their opening act on the Echo Tour in 1999; and she played two Petty compositions at the 2017 MusiCares Person of the Year tribute to Tom.

Petty and the Heartbreakers’ run of upcoming North American shows kicks off at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, and also includes multiple performances in Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Boston, New York City and Berkeley, California. Besides Williams, artists who will open for Petty and company at select concerts include country singer Chris Stapleton, J. Geils Band frontman Peter Wolf, The Lumineers, and The Shelters.
