Tom Petty has confirmed dates from April through July 2017 as he celebrates 40 years with the Heartbreakers – and he’ll have a special guest in Joe Walsh for part of the time.

Petty’s official site notes that the former Eagles star “will appear as very special guest on many of the dates.” Check out the confirmed shows below; more concerts – including spots on the West Coast – will be added soon. Shows with Walsh have an asterisk.

The tour begins in Oklahoma City, then goes on to Dallas, Nashville, Atlanta, Houston, Kansas City, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, among other stops. The Heartbreakers will also play the Mountain Jam Festival in Hunter Mountain, New York on June 17, and stage multiple shows at Red Rocks and in Queens, N.Y.

Tickets for most of the concerts are set to go on sale Dec. 16 at 10AM local time; two shows at New York City’s Forest Hills Stadium will be available on Dec. 14. Mountain Jam tickets are available via their official website. Petty’s shows at Wrigley Field in Chicago and at Milwaukee’s Summerfest will feature Chris Stapleton.
