Lockn 2014
Arrington, VA

A little rain and some scattered lightning couldn't keep Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers from rocking their headlining slot at the Lockn festival on Saturday night.

Local authorities evacuated the venue at the end of Phil Lesh's set to allow for thunderstorms to pass through the area, but the music eventually won out, with terrific sets from Gary Clark Jr., Tedeschi Trucks Band, Lesh and Widespread Panic with special guest Steve Winwood.

As Tom and the guys made their way to the stage, the musicians and friends who had played earlier in the day lined the backstage

A few minutes prior to show time, Tom stepped out of his dressing room to find Steve Winwood walking back to his bus after hisopening set.

 

The two old friends stopped to catch up and share a laugh about Lockn andthe weather delay the day before.

 

"I heard you were playing with Widespread Panic, but there was actual widespread panic out there," Tom said with a laugh. "Everything got alittle crazy for a little while there."

 

Order was restored Sunday night as the tour hit Darien Lake, one of few outdoor amphitheater shows of the tour.

Half an hour before show time, Richard Fernanadez stepped up the staircase at stage left and looked out over Boston’s Fenway Park.
 
“I’ve been with these guys for a long, long time, and this is the biggest headlining gig outside of a festival I’ve ever done with ‘em,” the long-time Heartbreakers tour manager said as he looked out over the 36,000-plus that gathered in one of America’s most famed baseball cathedrals.
 
And did Tom and the guys ever deliver!

Sometimes the best shows of a tour come in the unlikeliest of places.
 
A Sunday show in Portland, Maine after an insane, sold-out show at Boston’s historic Fenway Park may have appeared at face to be a potential anti-climatic pitfall, but Tom and the guys sensed the intimacy of the gig and room and brought it full-bore to the capacity crowd in Maine.
