Florida shows are always special affairs on a Heartbreaker tour.
 
Despite the simple fact that Tom and the guys have lived in California longer than they lived here, they will always be favorite sons of the Sunshine State, and Thursday’s show at Cruzan Amphitheater – the first of two Florida dates on the Hypnotic Eye tour – served as a big welcome back hug.
 
The adulation from the crowd commenced just as the house lights dropped and before the first notes of “So You Want To Be A Rock ‘n Roll Star” were even played and

25 years is a long time, but that’s exactly how long Heartbreaker fans in the Lehigh Valley have been waiting for Tom and the band to return to their corner of Pennsylvania.

Their patience was rewarded Tuesday night with one of the tightest shows of the Hypnotic Eye tour to date.

 

Everything about the Allentown show was spot-on, from Tom’s vocals to the band’s playing to the setlist to the stage lighting and front-of-house sound to the load out.

 

The tour is a little more than halfway over, and it’s running like a well-oiled machine.

Tom nodded at Steve Winwood as Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench started the melody to “Can’t Find My Way Home,” the Blind Faith classic penned by Winwood. Talk of onstage collaboration has been percolating all tour, but the rubber finally hit the road in the City of Brotherly Love. Rehearsals went well, and just after “U Get Me High,” Tom brought out their legendary tourmate.

 

“Every so often, we get the chance to play with one of our heroes,” he said.
