DTE Energy Music Theatre

Clarkston, MI

August 24, 2014

 

“I don’t know what they call this place now, but I’ll always know it as Pine Knob!”

 

The mere mention of the venue’s original name elicited an eardrum-rattling roar from the 15,000-plus that packed the DTE Energy Music Theatre.

 

Sunday was a special day on the Hypnotic Eye tour. With lots of family in attendance on a gorgeous Michigan summer night, Tom and the band were all excited for a rare outdoor show on this arena tour.

Chicago: Recap, Setlist & Photos

United Center

Chicago, IL

It’s so cool to see how the audience reacts when they recognize a song.

 

At the United Center in Chicago on Saturday night, it only took hearing those three familiar guitar licks from Mike Campbell for fans to scream with approval at the beginning of “I Won’t Back Down.”

 

A lot of Tom’s songs are like that. Whether big rock anthems or acoustic ballads, these songs are familiar to us, engrained in the soundtrack of our lives.

MTS Center

Winnipeg, Manitoba

August 21, 2014

 

Around 4 pm every show day, Steve Winwood and his band sound check onstage.

 

Some days, they work on songs for their set; other days, they just jam.

 

Whether it’s material from Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, Blind Faith or his solo career, Winwood’s opening set has been outstanding every night and warmed up the crowd perfectly for the Heartbreakers. In Winnipeg, “Dear Mr. Fantasy” was the highlight of their hour-long set, with Winwood taking two blistering extended guitar solos that brought the Canadian crowd to its feet.

Saddledome

Calgary, AB

August 19, 2014

 

The Heartbreakers are a crack blues band.

 

That side of Tom and the band’s musical personality was pressed to wax with Mojo, and it was again on full display Tuesday night at the Saddledome with a snarling cover of “Baby Please Don’t Go,” the often-covered blues standard credited to Delta bluesman Big Joe Williams.

 

Tom embodies the conflicted storyteller role, and the band rages behind him, Mike Campbell firing nasty, brain-rattling guitar leads in between verses.
