Thanks; this is an interesting combo. Guess this confirms the EC/Winwood shows in NYC will be the only ones.

Edit-the pollstar article says all tix must be picked up at the venue w/ photo ID. I'm happy they're trying to discourage scalping, but it seems excessive to make all tix will-call. And if plans change, I guess you have to eat even average tix. Even the one-off EC/Winwood shows made this requirement only for the first sections on the floor.

Interesting. I didn't realize they had plans to tour together but this should be a good one to catch. (So much for those hopes for an extended Clapton/Winwood tour after their MSG gig...)

(lol - Brock and I must have been composing our posts at same time...)

thanks for the heads up...I like both Tom Petty & Steve Winwood...Traffic was one of the great groups back in their day. I have ssen TP in 06 when they toured for their anniversary...the Brothers co-billed with them, which was a decent show all the way around, 2 great acts on one bill, but for us true ABB fans, it wasn't enough true ABB! They played what I thought was "safe" songs, more familiar to the general audience & they didn't jam as they traditionally do, when it's their own show with their own crowd. Good time though none the less. For anyone who catches shows in the Buffalo/Rochester area, the link shows TP & SW playing Darien Lake on Saturday June 21st. I do know that 97 Rock in Buffalo has been saying that they have a major concert announcement coming as soon as the ink is dry...wondering if this or who else it could be? Definitly planning on going to this though.

I didn't know there was another music venue in Atlanta till now. That'll be groovy to se TP and Steve Winwood at the same time.

ya know, I've always liked Tom Petty, since I was a kid... my husband was never really into him so when we went to the ABB & TP show in 06, he suggested that we cut out to the parking lot after the ABB were done playing...I was like, no way, it's a bonus to be able to see both of them in one night...so he stuck around & did enjoy the show much more than he thought, and ended up being glad that he stayed.

Seen TP&HB many times and never been disappointed. The tour in 06 with the Bros. at Darien that I saw was amazing. So much so, we caught it two more times and then just TP&HB in Toronto. Just a great live band. Looking forward to it.

The show we saw was at Darien... I had decent seats so that was cool...cuz the lawn was packed more than any show I have ever seen there! I ahve been to countless shows there over the years & I was so thankful to not be in that crowd! I heard it was brutal from so many people. The show itself was great though! The ABB were aces, of course I am very biases on that subject, but TP was awesome too! I am lloking forward to going to see him again this year at Darien & since I like Steve Winwood, I'm sure it will be an added bonus!
I gotta tell ya, I insisted that we go to Darien last summer to see the Roger Waters show. My husband doesn't really like Pink Floyd or Roger Waters, but I pretty much told him I was going anyway! Turned out we ended up winning tix from 97Rock so we didn't even have to buy them (they were pretty pricey for that show) & he did like that one more than he thought too...but he' s not a converted fan!

I've seen both TP&Heartbreakers and Steve Winwood a few times each and never been disappointed by either of their shows. Having both in the same concert will be outstanding!

I'm sure a rumor, but my God, wouldn't that be ace?!
Seriously though, when Petty was here in 06, Stevie Nicks was supposed to be a special guest, but then she cancelled out a day or 2 before...I would have LOVED to see her!

"I didn't know there was another music venue in Atlanta till now. That'll be groovy to se TP and Steve Winwood at the same time."

It is a Lakewood Wood like shed that is right behind North Point mall (west of Mansell Rd). I drove by over the Christmas holiday and the project was moving right along (per Project Manager). I am stoked as I live about 5 miles away from the venue

Me too! Really want to see Steve Winwood and I'm sure I'll enjoy Tom even though I'm not an uber Tom fan.

Thanks to Shapeshifter for the post and kdick for the on sale date.

Interesting combo for sure. Thanks for the info. I love Winwood/Traffic and saw Winwood back in the 90s at Chastain Park in Atlanta. I'd love to see him again.

Cool! I had no idea that they were building an amphitheater up there. I always love new venues.

knew Tom would be back on road after superbowl gig. Great combo with Steve. Wish they were playing Jones Beach instead of MSG-June is great time for outdoor shows.

Speaking of June, still waiting for the info on Beacon run in May. Hoepfully any day- any day, any day!!!
