It looks like CHRIS STAPLETON’s hand injury has healed because he’s talking about how much he’s looking forward to opening for Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. Quote, “I’m a huge fan. He’s one of my all-time favorites.
“This is something his booking agents and my guys have been working on for a time,or so they told me . . . and why wouldn’t [I] do that? I’d buy tickets to Tom Petty, so I’d certainly be more than happy to be on a bill with him.”
The shows are June 29th at Wrigley Field in Chicago, and July 5th and 6th at Milwaukee’s Summerfest.
