Tom Petty Tribute Concerts To Take Place In New York, LA

Petty Fest, a musical tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, is scheduled to hold events in New York City and Los Angeles. The NYC event takes place on October 24 at Webster Hall, while the L.A. event takes place on November 14 and 15 at the El Rey Theater.

Pat Carney of the Black Keys, Ryan Miller of Guster and Harper Simon (son of Paul Simon) are among the big names scheduled to attend. Surprise guests have yet to be revealed.

The Cabin Down Below Band, a loose collection of New York-based musicians that frequently get together to perform Petty's songs, will serve as the house band for concerts.

Promoters are also hoping to stage Petty Fest in San Francisco in 2013, according to Contact Music.
