News sources said that Petty was in critical condition and was put on life support. He had a pulse, but according to the doctors who treated him, he no longer had brain activity. He was pulled off life support and died on October 2 at 66 years old, and his manager released a statement about his passing. “He suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu in the early hours of this morning and was taken to UCLA Medical Center but could not be revived. He died peacefully at 8:40 p.m. PST surrounded by his family, bandmates, and friends,” the statement read (via Biography). Petty was buried at the Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine in Pacific Palisades. The ceremony took place with his family and a few of his closest friends in attendance.

Petty had been suffering from a few health issues even before the tour started. He had coronary artery disease and also took medication for hip and knee problems in addition to his emphysema medication, as reported by Rolling Stone. Despite his condition, he insisted on performing and completed 53 tour dates before his death. “On the day he died, he was informed his hip had graduated to a full-on break and it is our feeling that the pain was simply unbearable and was the cause for his overuse of medication,” Petty’s wife and daughter shared in a statement.
