Tom Petty concert in San Diego, ZZ Top opening act
The Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ concert, which was originally scheduled for June 2, has been postponed to September 28. According to The San Diego Union Tribune, Tom and the gang have decided to “postpone all of their concerts between May 6 and June 2, so that their tour could better coincide” with the June 15 release of their new album, Mojo.
As a result, Joe Cocker—who was supposed to open for Petty and his band on June 2—will no longer be the opening act. ZZ Top, the blues rock trio from Texas, is now the opening act for the September 28th show. Joe Cocker fans can still see Cocker and Petty on June 5–they just have to go all the way to Oakland to do so.
Regardless of the changes, this is going to be a concert you won’t want to miss! Get your tickets here.
