‘Petty Fest’ Targets Three Cities

Petty Fests – star-studded concerts celebrating the legacy of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – are planned for April in Los Angeles, Seattle and Chicago. Individual lineups after the jump.

Who’s appearing?  That depends on the city, but individual lineups include Flea, Albert Hammond Jr., Alison Mosshart, Brendan Benson, Jakob Dylan and many others.

Presented by The Best Fest (and sponsored by Jameson Irish Whiskey), the same folks that held Dylan Fests in New York and San Francisco in November, each night will a cavalcade of artists presenting their tributes to Petty and the Heartbreakers.  No, Petty & The Heartbreakers are not on the lineups, but each show will present an evening well worth remembering.
