Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers today
announced their 2010 North American tour and the upcoming release of Mojo,
their first studio album in eight years, set for release on Reprise Records
this spring.  The tour kicks off May 6th in Raleigh, NC,
and tickets go on sale beginning Monday, March 8 at LiveNation.com.

 
Special guest artists on the tour will include a mix of appearances by My
Morning Jacket, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Joe
Cocker, ZZ Top, and Drive-By Truckers.

 
All 2010 Tour tickets purchased online will include an MP3 download of every track
on Mojo. It will work like this: once fans purchase tickets online they
will receive an email with codes entitling them to download two tracks from Mojo (“First Flash Of Freedom” and “Good Enough.”) Then, on the
release date of the album, currently slated for this spring, ticket buyers will
be sent a download of the entire album.

 

Also included with every online ticket purchase,
to be delivered at the end of the 2010 tour, will be a selection of live tracks
recorded during the tour.

 
“Good Enough” from the new album is now available for streaming at
the revamped TOMPETTY.com.
 

 

 

Last year, of course, brought the massive Live Anthology boxed set – you can read
about it at BLURT right here: “That Southern Accent.”
