Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers are committed and dedicated to the public radio cause. The group has added a second concert for public radio station KCSN/Los Angeles. Nice (and generous) work, gents! The band had already confirmed one performance for the station.
Details: The two shows will be held on Oct. 29 and 30 at the 500-seat Plaza del Sol Performance Hall on the campus of California State University, Northridge.
"Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers are not only one of the greatest bands of all time, they are true believers in the power of rock & roll," said KCSN PD Sky Daniels, according to radio trade publication FMQB. "For them to selflessly want to perform this show speaks volumes for their love of music, and their willingness to support KCSN's effort to build a radio station devoted to breaking new artists, supporting local artists, and respecting great legacy artists. Tom and the Heartbreakers recognized the overwhelming demand and wanted to give more fans a chance to see them in this intimate hall, as well as help KCSN and public radio." We are all for public radio, and we support the effort, as well. We also encourage locals to do whatever they can to support this cause! If a legend like Tom Petty can, so can you. No effort of financial gift is too small!
Proceeds from the pledge drive will be used to support growth initiatives for KCSN, including signal improvements and community outreach. A portion of proceeds will also go to benefit National Public Radio's Music Initiative, as well.
