Petty will be honored as this year's MusiCares Person of the Year on February 10 during Grammy Week in Los Angeles, and he and the Heartbreakers hit the road April 20 in Oklahoma City to begin a tour celebrating the 40th anniversary of their debut album.

Petty released a pair of vinyl box sets during December featuring his entire album catalog.
