Tom Petty - The Best Of Everything Available Now

Geffen Records/UMe have released The Best Of Everything, the first career-spanning collection of all of Tom Petty’s hits with The Heartbreakers, his solo work and Mudcrutch. The 38-track set also features two previously unreleased tracks: the poignant and autobiographical “For Real” and the collection’s lead single—an alternate version of the title track, which restores a never-heard second verse to the song that was originally recorded for the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ 1985 album, Southern Accents.

All 38 recordings on The Best of Everything have been re-mastered for this collection from pristine transfers of the original studio multi-track masters.

KISS Announces Second Leg Of End Of The Road World Tour

In the “no surprise to anyone” category, KISS announced a second leg to their farewell tour. I am sure we can expect a few more legs before it’s all said and done. I particularly like how the press release touts that the band sold more than half a million tickets at their initial on sale. Which means the shows have not sold out. At least I will have more opportunities to see KISS this summer in addition to the two shows I am going to in the spring. Here’s the full press release:

After selling more than half a million tickets at their initial on sale, KISS announced the second leg of their final tour ever set for 2019, appropriately named END OF THE ROAD. The initial tour announcement was made at Halloween and featured a first set of dates, some of which sold out instantly.  The band announced today the second leg of the tour in North America starting this summer, produced by Live Nation, as well as new international markets being announced simultaneously.  Tour itinerary detailed below with new dates in red; KISS will be offering VIP experiences and special KISS Army fan presales.

KISS Meet & Greet Experiences will be available Tuesday, November 27 at 10am local time through  KISS Army fan club presales will begin Wednesday, November 28 at 9am local time. Visit for more information.  Tickets to the general public will go on sale starting Monday, December 3 at 10am local time.

Known for their trademark larger-than-life blistering performances, KISS has proven for decades why they are hands down the most iconic live show in rock n roll.  The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers who have sold more than 100 million albums worldwide have said this tour is devoted to the millions of KISS Army fans.

"All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who've filled clubs, arenas and stadiums over those years. This will be the ultimate celebration for those who've seen us and a last chance for those who haven't. KISS Army, we're saying goodbye on our final tour with our biggest show yet and we'll go out the same way we came in... Unapologetic and Unstoppable," said KISS.
