With the start of their headlining tour just a few weeks away, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers have added a few additional stops, as well as confirmed Regina Spektor and Jimmy Cliff as special guests along the way.

Since last check, second nights have been added in Broomfield, CO (4/18-4/19), and London (6/18 and 6/20), and a new stop in Halifax, Nova Scotia, has been confirmed for May 31. The stateside outing includes the band's first-ever appearance at New Orleans' Jazz & Heritage Festival, which takes place April 28, just a few days before the June 7 kick-off of the European leg in Dublin, Ireland.

Regina Spektor will open the U.S. shows through the May 5 concert in Austin, TX, and Jimmy Cliff will take to the stage for the three Canadian gigs.
