Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers started the home stretch of the 40th Anniversary tour in Vancouver on Thursday, rocking a sold-out Rogers Arena with opening act, The Lumineers.

 

Welcomed to the stage with a deafening standing ovation, Tom and the guys showed no rust following a two-week break after their last show in Philadelphia, stretching out on many songs throughout the two-hour-plus show with extended solos from Tom, Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench.

On August 28 & 29, 1964, The Beatles played two shows at the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium. Tickets for both shows were sold out, and the 15,983 screaming fans were kept from the stage by an eight-foot high fence topped with barbed wire. The Fab Four arrived by helicopter and played their standard 12-song set from the ’64 U.S. tour.
 
53 years later, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers walked onto the same stage at the recently revived former home of the U.S.

“Before I go, Tom, I gotta tell you one thing,” Peter Wolf said standing in Tom’s dressing room about half an hour before the Heartbreakers were scheduled to take the stage at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. “Everybody on this tour - from the rest of the guys in the Heartbreakers to your production team, backline guys, sound and lighting crews to the truck drivers – has been incredible.
 
“They’ve helped us feel comfortable and welcomed in so many ways, and I gotta believe that’s ‘cause it starts at the top.

“You don’t want to shake my hand today.”
 
Benmont Tench pulled some Kleenex out from his jacket pocket and wiped his runny nose.
 
Being sick on the road is no fun. There’s no place to hide, no rest for the weary and no bowl of Mom’s chicken soup to help you feel better. It just stinks.
 
But something magical happens at show time when the lights go down and the band walks onstage.

“He plays everything for us, and we can’t leave home without him,” Tom said on Sunday night in Canandaigua, NY during band introductions. “Ladies and gentlemen, Scott Thurston!”

 

It may not be overtly apparent, but Scott is the band’s musical glue, playing the parts that often hold the songs together.
