( Surge and Upstairs Cabaret)

Get ready to free fall your way into one of the most memorable nights of the season!

This Friday, Surge Productions and Upstairs Cabaret will be launching ticket sales for a Tom Petty Tribute show happening on November 10th.

Tom Petty was the lead singer in Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and his untimely death on October 2nd, 2017 at the age of 66 was mourned by fans around the world.

A man of many talents

The legendary artist, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer had more than just one band!

In his early years, Petty was a founding member of Mudcrutch – the country rock band that shot him to fame.

And in the late 1980s, he helped found the Traveling Wilburys – a musical supergroup that included iconic artists like Bob Dylan and George Harrison.

Throughout his career, Petty sold over 80 million records worldwide, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.

Artists come together to pay tribute

So for one night in November, a group of incredibly talented artists will be bringing Tom Petty’s work back to life, just for Victoria!

The list of performers include Neil Osborne, Oliver Swain, Dallas Budd, Adam Kittredge, Ryan Evans, Christian Down, Fox Glove, Chris Vansickle, Matthew Pease and more.
