When Tom Petty announced the third leg of his North American tour, he was nice enough to make time to stop in Raleigh. Not only was he coming to Alltel Pavilion, but he was going to bring indie rock giants The Strokes with him.
Well that was then and this is now. After moving the date from September 19 to September 10, it turns out The Strokes can no longer make the gig.
Who has come to save the day? None other than The Black Crowes.
This will be Chris Robinson and the gang's second stop at Alltel this summer. They stopped through with Robert Randolph and the Family Band on July 12.
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers plus The Black Crowes equals a night of rock 'n roll.
Tickets are still available for the show.
