    Isle Of Wight Festival Annoucement
    Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers are pleased to announce that they will headline the first night of the 2012 Isle of Wight Festival on Friday, June 22.

    The band's performance at the legendary UK festival is their first announced concert in 2012 and will be their first major European show in 20 years.

    The Isle of Wight Festival is one of the most prestigious events in rock 'n roll. In the late 1960s the festival drew large crowds to the beautiful island to see acts such as Bob Dylan and The Who. The 1970 edition of the festival was the UK's answer to Woodstock and at the time was the largest rock concert to ever take place worldwide. The bill included Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, and Sly and The Family Stone.

    In 2012 Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers will headline the Isle Of Wight mainstage on Friday night and Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band will headline the Sunday night. A very exciting additional headliner for Saturday night will be announced soon.
