Editor’s Note: I’m not sure what’s going on with that July 24 date, as the Heartbreakers performed in California on the 23rd and 25th.
Summer concert excitement set

Rock, jazz, top 40 highlight summer concert schedule
No matter what your musicial tastes, the summer concert schedules for Pittsburgh and Cleveland have what you’re looking for.
Rock, jazz, and top 40 artists are on their way to the area so stay tuned for some shows that you don’t want to miss.
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will be at A.J. Palumbo Theater in Pittsburgh on July 24 and Blossom on Aug. 8. If you have never seen Petty, do so. He is a rocker that is uniquely American, and although his latest LP “Full Moon Fever” is a solo project, Petty will bring the Heartbreakers on tour.
A Petty show is just a great time from start to finish and he will play his trademark 12-string guitar to such favorites as “Breakdown,” “Even the Losers,” and his new single “Won’t Back Down.” If you like rock and roll it would be a shame to miss this one.
