The City of Brotherly Love showed some serious love to a music brotherhood of more than 40 years on Saturday night as Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers returned to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, a city they played on their very first tour back in 1977.

“Into The Great Wide Open” made its tour debut, an apropos choice considering Arroyo Seco was the first Southern California show of the tour.

 

Before the show, Tom and the band huddled in the dressing room, running through

“So the chorus goes like this.”

 

Mike Campbell strums a black Fender Stratocaster as Marty Stuart watches the Heartbreaker guitarist’s hands glide across the fretboard running through “Crawling Back To You” in his dressing room backstage at the Mountain Jam festival in upstate New York.

For the first two months of Tom Petty & the
Heartbreakers’ 40th Anniversary tour, Joe Walsh has opened nearly
every show, so the mood was bittersweet last Friday at the Prudential

Newark, NJ as it was the last night out with the legendary Eagles
guitarist,
his incredible band and amazing crew.

“Welcome to Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ 40th
Anniversary tour,” Walsh said as his nine-piece band took the stage for
