Tom Petty Dragging Stevie Nicks Around

This is pretty cool. Stevie Nicks is joining the first eight shows of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers "Highway Companion" tour this summer - she'll come onstage with the band to sing "a handful of songs each night." I can only guess this means live versions of "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" and maybe even the version of "Apartment Song" that appears on the Playback boxed set.

Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks go way back. The two sang the duet "Insider," on Petty's Hard Promises album, and "Needles and Pins" on the live album Pack Up The Plantation. Nicks also covered "Free Fallin" for the soundtrack of the TV show "Party of Five."

These are the shows Stevie Nicks will appear at:

June 9 - Charlotte, N.C. (Verizon Amphitheatre)
June 10 - Bristow, VA (Nissan Pavillion)
June 12 - Portsmouth, VA (Ntelos Pavillion)
June 14 - Columbus, OH (Germain Ampitheater)
June 16 - Manchester, TN (Bonaroo)
June 17 - St. Louis, MO (UMB Bank Pavillion)
June 20 - New York, NY (Madison Square Garden)
June 21 - Mansfield, MA (Tweeter Center
June 21 show at the Tweeter Center in Mansfield, Mass.

Oh man, too bad I'm not much of a Petty fan. I'd love to see them do a little "Leather and Lace" in MSG. I love me some Stevie Nicks.
