Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 5/20/14 New Petty LP and Tour!!
(The Six O’Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
OK, Petty fans, time to rejoice!!! News broke today confirming a release date for the new Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers LP Hypnotic Eye. It hits shelves and sites on July 29, with an accompanying tour to follow. And, just like in 2008, Steve Winwood will be the supporting act for a majority of the shows. I was fortunate enough to see that fantastic show at The Palace on May 31, 2008, and it was as great as you would imagine!! Unfortunately, as of now, the closest show to us for the upcoming tour is in Chicago on August 23, 2014.
Despite that detail, I’m as geeked as any TP&HB fan for just some new music. And, judgin by the above promotional video, it’s gonna be another great one! Tonight, three from Tom and Company for your Six O’Clock Triple Shot: “Even The Losers” from Damn The Torpedoes; “Rebels” from Southern Accents, and “Saving Grace” from Highway Companion, only on 94.9 WMMQ!!
