Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers coming to Safeco Field in August

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

I can't remember if I've seen Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers four or five times in concert, but I can confirm that they've put on an excellent show each time I've seen them. The reason I'm bringing this up is because the legendary rock group is coming to Seattle this summer, so I'm geeking out already at the thought of it. The band will close out their '40th Anniversary Tour' at Safeco Field on August 19, after a five-month itinerary that begins April 20 in Oklahoma City. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are responsible for a string of classic rock songs that span four decades, including 'Free Fallin',' 'I Won't Back Down,' 'Runnin' Down a Dream,' 'Refugee,' 'The Waiting,' 'Don't Do Me Like That,' 'Mary Jane's Last Dance,' 'You Got Lucky' and my personal favorite, 'Learning to Fly.' This concert will be epic! Don't miss it! Tickets go on sale February 13 (10am) at LiveNation.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

Get those cowboy boots and hat dusted off because you'll need them for the sixth annual Watershed Music and Camping Festival, happening July 28-30 at The Gorge Amphitheatre. The 2017 lineup features Chris Stapleton, Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Lee Brice, Lauren Alaina, High Valley, The Cadillac Three, Randy Houser and the Josh Abbott Band, to name just some of the artists converging at The Gorge Amphitheatre right smack in the middle of summer for the nationally-known festival. More acts will be announced to perform on the event's second stage soon. Besides the music, guests can also purchase camping passes that come with such amenities as amusement park rides, exclusive entry to VIP sections and premiere campsites. For festival passes and further details, visit watershed.com. You can also get updates by going to facebook.com/WatershedMusicFestival.

In case you hadn't heard, Olivia Newton-John is Northwest-bound this week. But don't expect the pop-country veteran to sing any of her big hits, like 'Magic' and 'Hopelessly Devoted to You, because she's performing as a part of a trio with Beth Nielsen Chapman and Amy Sky. The three-piece is expected to play all eleven tracks from their collaborative album Liv On during the concert, which will also include storytelling. John could surprise with a few solo numbers, though the set list will lean heavily on the trio's music. For tickets and more information about the shows, set for February 16 at the Historic Everett Theatre and February 17 at the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts, Tacoma's Pantages Theater, go to historiceverett.org or broadwaycenter.org

Here are a few more shows that I want to tell you about: Desiigner at The Showbox Market (April 2), John Legend at Chateau St. Michelle (June 3-4) and Kings of Leon at The Gorge Amphitheatre (August 26).

Finally, R&B-jazz artist Al Jarreau has been forced to cancel all performance dates through the end of the year, including his April 4 and 5 shows at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley. He was hospitalized this week in Los Angeles due to exhaustion and is recovering; however, not only will he not be touring in the foreseeable future, he has made the tough decision to retire from touring indefinitely and thanked his fans for 50 years of traveling the world to play his music. His most popular hit was 'We're in This Love Forever' from 1981. Refunds are available through jazzalley.com.
