Sound World: Tom's planning a torpedo tour
By Donnie Sutherland
The Sydney Sun-Herald - March 23, 1980

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will tour Australia next month. The group, one of the hottest in America, will appear in Sydney on April 26.

Tom Petty says he was raised on rock music. That certainly must be the case for the other members as well.

On stage at the Capitol you can expect some of the finest straight rock and roll yet seen in this country.

The tour is to be known as Damn the Torpedoes after the title of their current album. Damn the Torpedoes is currently topping the American charts.

Full marks to Paul Dainty for managing to get the group while they're hot. Tickets go on sale in Sydney this Wednesday.
