    Enter for a Chance to Meet Tom Petty as Part of SiriusXM's Ultimate Buried Treasure Contest
    On the evening of April 14, SiriusXM will broadcast a special 2-hour, live event – TOM PETTY’S ULTIMATE BURIED TREASURE – in celebration of Tom Petty’s exclusive SiriusXM radio show, now entering its 6th year with new episodes beginning on March 31. SiriusXM's Meg Griffin will host.

    A select group of Tom’s fans will have the opportunity to be part of the intimate studio audience at the event, which includes a post-show meet-and-greet with Tom.

    To qualify to be part of this event, SiriusXM subscribers can submit their most creative and insightful questions about Tom’s musical career, or about his Buried Treasure radio show and the music played on it, for the chance to pose the question in person to Tom directly at the event. Twenty (20) of the best questions will be chosen and those people will be invited with a guest to meet up at a secret location in Southern California, where they will be face to face with Tom to ask their question LIVE during this very special event on April 14.

    Each of the winners will also receive a copy of the special limited edition Record Store Day releases of the first two Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers albums on 120-gram colored vinyl which Tom will sign for you at the event – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (on white vinyl) and You’re Gonna Get It! (on blue vinyl).

    There will also be a chance to call in with questions during the live broadcast, giving SiriusXM listeners the chance to speak to Tom as well.

This Indiana girl just got home from Southern Califorina where we got to meet the one and only Mr. Petty - the evening was magical. We still feel like we are dreaming and never want to wake up! Thanks for a once in a lifetime experience. Our daughters were thrilled with their shout-out and their autographed vinyl. Thanks for everything - Cindy and Willie

Thanks for giving your time and energy towards this special Buried Treasure effort, Tom. I loved the show tonight--even though my question did not get me there to be a part of the celebration, I was so excited to hear you mention the Elvis Presley handbook that you purchased at age 11 for $1....this piece of TP history was included in my contest question. Hope there will be another contest soon. Keep on being amazing with the Heartbreakers. See you on the road again soon!!!

I like the second one better in my opinion! Three decades have gone by since I heard you for the first time on the juke box, and boy did I have a strange dream the night before my brother Scotty gave me The Damn Torpedos album! No one would believe me if I said what it was about, so I won't. I am framing the Red Vinyl Torpedo albums! Thank you Tom, Mike, Bentmont, Ron, Steve Stan, lol... and Scott for all your awesome music! Best wishes to you all!!!! ANGEL H.

I have a brilliant question, but I can't enter because I live in the UK.

I feel fortunate to have first heard Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on the radio in 1977, I was 17, my life would not be the same without this true Rock and Roll music and attitude that was always one or two steps ahead of everyone else.

Not being an XM Radio subscriber, I need to know how to submit my question through the HC website. Any links out there or in here?

My birthday IS April 14th the day of the meet and greet. and I would probably go into a state of shock but it would be the be all end all to be able to attend. I think I have some of all of Mr. Pettys collection of tunes and like everyone else I sing right along with all of them.(or at least I call it singing!!) Even the new MOJO songs. My family and I have attended several concerts and sport T-shirts, hats etc. from them. Also have got a ton from the online store so they dont wear out so fast. lol This thread is just beginning and I am sure will grow til I get lost in it but sure would like to come.
