NASHVILLE (Billboard) - Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers put together a hell of a touring year in 2006. They played five major festivals and drew near-capacity crowds at amphitheaters and arenas across North America.
Tom Petty, already with sixteen Grammy
nods to his credit, received his 17th and 18th nominations this morning.
His latest album, the critically-acclaimed \"Highway Companion\" (American
Recordings/WBR) has been nominated for Best Rock Album, and the single
\"Saving Grace,\" received a nomination for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance.
Tom is highlighted in LA Times West Magazine as one of 37 Southern Californias who is a striver-those who started with nothing and reached great heights. He is in great company...John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, David Geffen, Walt Disney, Jackie Robinson...legends. Below is the excerpt about Tom:
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.
