The Heartbreakers’ Mike Campbell Pushes Solo Tour To Fall 2021


Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers' guitarist Mike Campbell has postponed his upcoming tour with his solo band the Dirty Knobs until the fall. Campbell and the band's album, titled, Wreckless Abandon, which was originally announced for March 20th, then pushed to September 18th, is finally set for release on November 20th.

Campbell posted a message on Facebook to fans, which reads: "Due to circumstances beyond our control. . . All our Dirty Knobs dates have been postponed till next year. . . You can find all the new dates here. We miss you all and are dying to get out and play again. . . we will be releasing our record in November, and we all have to just be patient till things open up again. . . Thanks for hanging in there with us."

During Dave Grohl's 2013 documentary Sound City, Mike Campbell recalled his earliest musical influence: ["My first musical memory; my dad would play Johnny Cash and Elvis (Presley) records. He would come home from the Air Force every day, take off his uniform, lay on the couch, and put on a Johnny Cash record. I just loved it, y'know? And I once asked him, 'Why do you like Johnny Cash so much?' And he said, 'Because he sings the truth.' And Elvis, too, y'know, (guitarist) Scotty Moore and those guys. Those were the records that, he just wore 'em out."] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . wore 'em out)
