Johnny Depp and rocker Tom Petty continue their association March 13 and 20, when Depp hosts back-to-back Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers segments of "ABC in Concert."

You may recall that Depp played the lead role (a mythical rock star) in Petty's "Into the Great Wide Open" video. Meanwhile, Petty and the band are on their latest European tour -- they perform in Sweden today (March 5) -- after a memorable launch in London early this week.

A surprise visitor showed up amid reporters at an interview session with Petty -- his buddy and fellow Traveling Wilbury George Harrison. Harrison called out the question, "What are you going to do when the bubble bursts?" Petty's reponse: "We're going to move into your guest house."
