Thirty years is a long time to be doing anything, especially playing rock 'n' roll.

But Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers having been doing just that since their 1976 eponymous debut established them as major force in the "Pre-Wave" movement.

Fans cry foul Tom Petty cancels 460 tickets to stop scalpers

If you bought a ticket from an online broker for Tom Petty\'s upcoming shows
with Pearl Jam at the X, you may be out of luck.

In a move that could be a first in the industry, Petty\'s management and
Ticketmaster have canceled some 460 seats for the June 26 and 27 concerts
that were set aside for fan club members but have since shown up on Internet
sites that resell tickets at a higher price.
