LEXINGTON, KY (March 5, 2024) - Iconic guitarist and songwriter Mike Campbell (Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Fleetwood Mac) and his band The Dirty Knobs will perform at the Lexington Opera House on Thursday, June 27, 2024 at 8PM as part of their 2024 Summer Tour.

Performing songs off their first two records Wreckless Abandon (2020) and External Combustion (2022), as well as classics from his beloved previous band, Campbell will be joined by Heartbreakers drummer Steve Ferrone, guitarist/keyboardist Chris Holt and bassist Lance Morrison.

What began as a less structured project for Campbell in between The Heartbreakers’ touring became a full-time project following the passing of Campbell’s longtime compatriot, friend and bandmate Tom Petty and his performances with Fleetwood Mac on their 2018-2019 World Tour.

Mike Campbell & The Dirty Knobs have spent the last three years touring the country headlining legendary venues such as the Fillmore in San Francisco, CA and Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY while also supporting icons including Chris Stapleton, The Who and Willie Nelson.

In September 2023, Mike Campbell & The Dirty Knobs, along with fellow Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers founding member Benmont Tench, were the backing band to musical legend Bob Dylan in his surprise appearance at Farm Aid 2023 – his first time back since the festival’s inaugural event in 1985. Performing his hits “Maggie’s Farm,” “Positively 4th Street,” and “Ballad of a Thin Man,” attendees saw Dylan play the guitar for the first time in many years, marking the entire performance as a moment which Rolling Stone dubbed “the highlight of an epic show.”
