, Tom Petty was born on October 20, 1950. He was one of the founding members of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in the late 1980’s. His songs are record breaking hits: From American Girl, I Won’t Back Down, and Free Fallin’. At first I though, do I know this guy, well maybe not by name because I’m one of those people that doesn’t just absorb details, but everyone must enjoy at least one of his songs. He’s been singing for over 31 years.
The Superhighway Tour is a brand new online music experience developed by the Tom Petty Team. Simply put, it’s a direct to consumer digital configuration of the upcoming The Live Anthology – a collection of 48 definitive tracks from 30 years of TPHB live touring.
The fan value is extraordinary: 48 digital tracks for $24.98. What is unique is that the digital tracks are presented within a dedicated web site and delivered with truly compelling additional material. That material adds context, depth and understanding to what is already a career-defining live music anthology. It includes streaming audio commentary from Tom and the band, historic photos and videos, show reviews, recreated vintage merchandise (for sale), and areas for fans to share their experiences and photos from TPHB shows.
The tracks are delivered as MP3’s, but also in FLAC format (lossless audio that is close to Blue Ray quality). The first 24 tracks, which make up the body of the Superhighway Tour are delivered to the consumer over the 8 week period that leads to street date (11/23/09). The remaining 24 tracks will be delivered collectively on street date.
The Superhighway Tour represents a new means of delivering music to fans that is more than a collection of digital files; but one that deepens fans’ appreciation for, and love of, an artist and their artistry; that reinforces the importance of quality in the music experience; and that rewards a fan’s decision to spend their hard earned dollars.
Tom Petty Superhighway Tour Tickets have all 24 advance tracks, include an insider’s online experience, including new band commentary, archival memorabilia, vintage photos, videos, classic reviews from the shows, and more
