The tour kicks of April 20 in Oklahoma City. The group will also play at the Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach. That show is scheduled for May 5.

“I’m thinking it may be the last trip around the country,” Petty told Rolling Stone. “It’s very likely we’ll keep playing, but will we take on 50 shows in one tour? I don’t think so. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was thinking this might be the last big one.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
