The members of The Heartbreakers will be joined by a fleet of revered musicians, including the famed former David Bowie guitarist Earl Slick, session drummer Jim Keltner, Stephen Stills’ son Chris, Roy Orbison’s sons Roy Jr. and Alex, and more.

Concert profits will be donated to the The Midnight Mission and MusiCares, charities that Petty had supported during his lifetime. The Midnight Mission is an LA-based organization that aids the homeless population in Skid Row, while MusiCares is a philanthropic branch of the Recording Academy that provides help to music community members in-need. 

Tickets for the show are available at AXS.com
