After a lengthy hiatus, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will return to the touring circuit in 2014 with a new trek in support of its summer album, "Hypnotic Eye." Don't miss the group as it makes a return to New York for a concert at Madison Square Garden on Sept. 10. In addition to tracks from the new release, like the lead single "American Dream Plan B," Petty will likely revisit his early years with hits from the '70s and '80s. Steve Winwood, the vocalist behind big hits like "Valerie," will join the trek as opening act.
