No fewer than five guitars were stolen from a sound stage in Culver City, California, where Tom Petty has been rehearsing with the Heartbreakers for their upcoming world tour. At least three of the instruments dated from 1967, and Petty is offering a $7,500 “no questions asked” reward for information leading to their recovery. Either way, the show will go on, with a kickoff in Broomfield, Colorado, in four days.
