Tom Petty Gets Hitched

By | June 21, 2001 at 12:00 AM

Tom Petty and his longtime girlfriend, Dana York, were married on June 3 in Las Vegas, following the head Heartbreaker’s two sold-out shows at the Hard Rock Hotel on June 1st and 2nd.

According to Petty’s rep, the musician, his bride and a few close family and friends remained in Sin City for their wedding on Sunday. Following the rather low-key ceremony (no, they were not married by an Elvis impersonator), the rather raucous party of twenty descended on Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Las Vegas to celebrate.

Petty superfans can even order a copy of the wedding certificate for a mere $7 at www.co.clark.nv.us/recorder/mar_srch.htm by searching under York’s name. The marriage is Petty’s second.

The happy couple will not be taking an extended honeymoon, unless you count the second leg of Petty’s tour, which kicks off on June 27th in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Jackson Browne will be the opening act. After the Heartbreakers winds up the tour in late July, they plan to return to a Los Angeles studio to work on their next album.
