On the evening of Saturday June 8, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers were unable to complete their concert at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles due to the Fire Marshal's judgment that the floor at the venue was overcrowded.
The interruption of the show occurred 90 minutes into the performance that would likely have continued for approximately another 30 minutes.
According to the band's press release, "The satisfaction of fans is of paramount importance to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and the band share the frustration of the fans in attendance that evening who deserved to experience the entire performance."
As a result, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers and Goldenvoice have announced that full refunds for the June 8 show are now available at the point of purchase. Ticketmaster has agreed to refund all incurred Ticketmaster fees.
