Tom Petty Fans To Get A Refund

(Radio.com) Tom Petty fans were heartbroken when his Saturday (June 8) concert in Los Angeles came to an abrupt end mid-set. But in a statement on Wednesday (June 12), Petty assured attendees that they will receive a full refund for their tickets.

The band was part way through their fourth show of a six-night residency at the Hollywood club the Fonda when the fire marshal declared the venue overcrowded and shut it down, according to the LA Times.

The newspaper reports that around 10:30 p.m., Petty informed the crowd that "about 100" people in the general admission floor area needed to either leave the concert or move up to the balcony, or the show could be shut down. When fans didn't budge, the singer stepped to the mic during an extended instrumental in the band's "Melinda" to say the show was over.

Luckily, frustrated fans will be getting their money back, as the group was only able to deliver three-quarters of their intended set. Billboard reported that Petty addressed his Sunday night (June 9) Fonda crowd with empathy in regards to the situation.

"We had to quit a little early last night," he said to the audience. "I don't like to assign blame, but it wasn't me. I'm absolutely sure we're going to work this out. If I have to pay it myself, everyone will be reimbursed."

The band's refund statement confirms that Ticketmaster will pay back the full price of each ticket, including all associated fees, and that "the satisfaction of fans is of paramount importance to Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers." more on this story
