    From Dec 2016:


    Tom Petty:
    40th Anniversary Tour Might Be 'Last Big One'


    "We're all on the backside of our sixties," Petty says. "I don't want to spend my life on the road"

    "Tom Petty says his 2017 40th anniversary tour with the Heartbreakers might be his last one."

    So sad that he wanted to spend more time with his granddaughter after the tour. RIP, Tom.

    Saw the early news reports earlier and was very concerned... so sad to read this update. Tom Petty is basically the soundtrack of my early twenties in Atlanta and the Florida west coast. RIP.

    Saw them in concert many years ago at the Times Union Performing Arts Center in Jax. Had very comfortable seats - none of which were used.

    He even stopped at one point and joked that we could sit down. No one did. Good memories.

    Longtime fan of Tom Petty - his music videos were the best part of MTV back when it had music videos. What a horrible shock! RIP Mr Petty thank you for your incredible music. Running down a dream...

    My thoughts are with his family and I'm thinking positive for him.

    I love his music.sounds like someone is back pedaling, though.

    I wondered briefly if this was a hoax. (Ok, I HOPED, not wondered.)

    Last time he was here in Phoenix, we got pulled over on the freeway just after his show. I accidentally cut off a motorcycle (no crash or anything, shame on me, my brother died after being hit by a bus while on his motorcycle) and the cop pulled me over, thought I was drunk. I don't even drink, so it was great. Cop could not believe I don't drink. Had me touch my nose and walk toe to heel then let me go, reminding me to be more careful.

    This is not about me, but it is the memory I will have forever... I have one of those "remember that one time after the Tom Petty concert..." stories to tell.

    Now, what is really going on?

    I'm just broken. I'm not ready to lose this legend. I don't normally concern over celebs, but Tom Petty is top shelf.
