Oh my. Well well well. You got lucky, because we've got a very special ticket giveaway on End Hits this week.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers need no introduction. The legendary rock 'n' rollers have been around for close to 40 years, and show no signs of letting up, they've had enough. Their latest album, Hypnotic Eye, comes out July 29—and they're back on tour! Petty & Co. will hit the Moda Center on Tuesday, August 12, and it will be a rock concert of the finest order. You don't want to miss it.

Want to go—for free? Ask a stupid question. We're giving away two pairs of tickets to the show to lucky End Hits readers (or at least people reading this post). The tickets are located in Section 223, in case you're wondering.

To be a face in the crowd, enter our giveaway by sending an email to contest at portlandmercury dot com with "Send me to Tom Petty!" in the subject line. Please include your first and last name in the email. Also—and this is important: If you win, you must be able to come to the Mercury office in downtown Portland during business hours to pick up the tickets. Please don't enter if you can't do this. We'll keep this open until noon on Tuesday, so enter now!

Entered? Good. And now—the waiting is the hardest part.

(Tickets for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are on sale here.)
