Tom Petty to play second Royal Albert Hall show

Tom Petty has added at second date at London's Royal Albert Hall to his short UK and Ireland tour this June.

The new show will take place on June 18 in addition to the previously announced show on June 20, after an overwhelming demand during the fans' only pre-sale yesterday (January 17).

The singer, along with his band The Heartbreakers, will play gigs in Dublin and Cork as well as London. All four shows precede his headline slot at the Isle Of Wight Festival.

Petty will first play Dublin's O2 Arena on June 7, then Cork's 'Live At The Marquee' event on June 8 before heading to London's Royal Albert Hall for two shows.

Petty headlines Isle Of Wight Festival two days after the London show on June 22, with Pearl Jam and Bruce Springsteen acting as the event's other headliners.

The singer released his 12th studio album 'Mojo' last year.

Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers will play:

Dublin O2 Arena (June 7)
Cork Live At The Marquee (8)
London Royal Albert Hall (18, 20)
