Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers confirm

From Tom Petty's MySpace.com page:

Los Angeles, CA - Thursday, April 20, 2006 -- Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
will embark on their 2006 North American "Highway Companions Tour" on June 9
in Charlotte, N.C. The band will be joined along the way by an exciting
list of friends and guests that will include a series of very special shows
with Pearl Jam, some shows with special guest Trey Anastasio, and others
with the Allman Brothers Band. Expect further announcements soon of
additional special guests and opening acts who will be on selected dates.

As part of their summer tour, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers - Petty/vocals,
guitars, Mike Campbell/guitars, Benmont Tench/keyboards, Ron Blair/bass,
Scott Thurston/guitars, harmonica, backing vocals, and Steve Ferrone/drums -
will headline the Bonnaroo Festival on Friday, June 16, and the Austin City
Limits Festival on Sunday, September 17.

This is great news. Thanks for the heads up, Ashely!

It is also confirmed on the official web page- just had to double check- I'm happy though
 
awesome
 
Actually not so great news because that's one more headliner that won't be Radiohead.
 
sucks

Seems to me that Bonnaroo probably played a little more to get an exclusive on Radiohead or Radiohead simply wants to only headline one U.S. Fest this year.

Radiohead will probably play the Woodlands in Houston, like they have during the past two U.S. tours.

Press Release text:
Superfly Productions and A.C. Entertainment are proud to announce the initial lineup for the 2006 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival...Bonnaroo is proud to host Radiohead's only American festival appearance of the summer...
