Today, Oct. 20, would have been the 70th birthday of Tom Petty.

While the legendary singer/songwriter passed away in 2017, his legacy and spirit live on — just last week, a lavish Deluxe Edition reissue of Petty’s 1994 album Wildflowers was released. Wildflowers & All the Rest, an expansive collection of material highlighting one of Petty’s personal favorite releases, is the real deal.

The eye-popping list of participating musicians and artists includes Stevie Nicks, Chris Stapleton, Post Malone, Foo Fighters, The Killers, Norah Jones, The Raconteurs, Jason Isbell, a very special performance by Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench and many more, and will begin at 4:30 p.m. ET/1:30 p.m. PT on SiriusXM’s Tom Petty Radio, with the live stream concert event kicking off on the Amazon Music Twitch Channel and at 7:00 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.

More on the Tom Petty Birthday Bash, which will also focus on the #SaveOurStages campaign as well as other worthy causes:

Tom Petty’s 70th Birthday Bash will focus on raising awareness for Save Our Stages (NIVA)—whose mission is to preserve and nurture the ecosystem of independent live music venues and promoters throughout the United States; Arts In Medicine—empowering musicians and impacting the lives of citizens in the Gainesville community and beyond; Digitunity— an initiative of the National Cristina Foundation, is working to ensure everyone has the technology they need to thrive in our digitally connected society; and MusiCares—providing a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need.
