    Unfortunately Tom Petty has developed a throat infection and his doctor has advised him that he shouldn't perform tonight.

    As a result we regret to announce that tonight's show at the US Airways Center in Phoenix, AZ has been postponed. We will have more information soon.

    As of now the Phoenix show is the only show impacted.

    The band sincerely apologizes to fans who were looking forward to the show tonight or who may be inconvenienced.
