We are very proud to announce the release of the first ever career-spanning multiple-disc set of live recordings 'Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers – The Live Anthology'

The release comes on the heels of two sold out US tours, the Grammy winning documentary 'Runnin' Down A Dream' (directed by Peter Bogdanovich), and an explosive headline performance at 2008s Super Bowl XLII halftime show.
The producers made no fixes or overdubs, letting the newly mixed original recordings showcase the invention, spontaneity, craft, and the musicianship that has made Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers among the most celebrated live performers of their time. Along with powerful interpretations of their own classic hits and originals, 'The Live Anthology' features the band tackling some of their best-loved cover material, from classics to obscure beauties to unexpected adaptations. The theme from Goldfinger, the Zombies' 'I Want You Back Again', the Grateful Dead's 'Friend of the Devil', early Fleetwood Mac's 'Oh Well', Booker T. and the MGs' 'Green Onions', James Brown's 'Good, Good Lovin'' and many more. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers travel wide, paying their musical debts through song and showing just how confidently the band moves across genres and over time. The packaging for all configurations was designed by famous artist Shepard Fairey who became widely known for his Barack Obama 'HOPE' poster in the 2008
