Tom Petty has always been a hometown favorite and we’re excited that he’s headlining the Firefly Festival in June. We dug through the video vaults and found Petty with the Heartbreakers’ rocking out to “Refugee” duing Live Aid at JFK Stadium in 1985. Petty, along with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Vampire Weekend, and Foster The People headline the over 60 band lineup on June 21-23 in Dover, Delaware. Go here for more information and tickets.
My Morning Jacket’s current tour with Neko Case is shaping up to be more than just the typical latest-album-replicating circuit. Last week in Pittsburgh, MMJ lead singer Jim James was joined on stage by Neko Case for a cover of the Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton duet “Islands In the Stream.” Now, thanks to a fan video, we get to see the two take on the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers song “Stop Dragging My Heart Around,” originally performed with Stevie Nicks. Watch below, via Anti- Label Blog.
My Morning Jacket and Neko Case will be performing at the Mann Center on Tuesday, August 23rd. Tickets range from $40 – $55.40 and are available here.
