via RollingStone It has been nearly one year since Tom Petty graced a concert stage. HIs final performance capped off three sold-out nights in L.A. at the Hollywood Bowl on September 25th, 2017. Tragically, just days later on October 2nd the Hall of Fame legend passed away just shy of his 67th Birthday.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone right-hand Man, writing partner and guitarist MIke Campbell may have alluded to plans of a reunion (of sorts) with his surviving bandmates, The Heartbreakers. When asked about that topic Campbell said:
“Of course we’ll play again someday,” he says. “We love each other too much not to do that.”
Currently he's on tour with Fleetwood Mac but when things open up on his schedule he thinks the release of an upcoming Wildflowers Box Set would be a fitting time to reunite.
It would be a great tribute to Tom to just do that album,” says Campbell. “We’d probably have four or five different guest singers with us. We don’t know who they might be though or when this might happen.”
One thing fans should not expect is a full-fledged arena tour. Due to the fact that, as Campbell puts it:
"Nobody can fill those shoes. I can’t fill them and I don’t know anybody else that I would want to fill them.”
