Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers returned to the Klipsch Music Center outside Indianapolis Saturday night to open the venue’s 29th concert season with a hit-laden show spanning the band’s four decades in rock 'n' roll. 

 

Hoosiers have a special place in their heart for Tom and the guys.

Tom and the guys have many musical influences, but the band’s show at Scottrade Center in St. Louis Friday put one of their biggest front and center – the late, great Chuck Berry.

 

During band introductions after “Don’t Come Around Here No More,” Tom told the story about meeting Mike for the first time and the Chuck Berry tune the legendary Heartbreaker guitarist played to convince Tom he should join his band, Mudcrutch.

 

“He had this cheap Japanese guitar, and when I saw it, I thought, ‘Well, this isn’t gonna go well,” Tom said onstage in St.

Mike Campbell is known the world over for being one of rock ‘n roll’s great guitar players, a fact that was only reinforced Wednesday night at the State Farm Center in Champaign, IL.

 

Starting off with a great solo on the show-opening “Rockin’ Around With You,” the legendary Heartbreakers guitarist traded licks with keyboardist Benmont Tench on “You Got Lucky” before following it up with his trademark riff on “I Won’t Back Down.” But it was Mike’s playing on “I Should Have Known It,” digging deeper and deeper into the fret board of his sunburst

Though it’s only been in the setlist since Houston, “Crawling Back to You” has quickly become one of the centerpieces of the show each night.

 

In Memphis, Tom and the guys tore through the first half of the show, including an arena-shaking “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” and a particularly inflammatory “It’s Good to Be King,” so the “Crawling Back to You” that followed began slowly, almost somberly. By the last verse, Tom sounded totally wrought, just like the protagonist in the song.

 

Setlist:

“I'm so tired of being tired
Sure as night will follow day

Amalie Arena

It’s no coincidence Saturday night’s show at Amalie Arena in Tampa was a special night on Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ 40th Anniversary tour.

 

Just 130 miles from Gainesville, Tampa is the tour’s closest stop to the band’s old stomping grounds in central Florida, meaning the backstage hallways, hospitality suites and catering would be full of family and friends visiting before the show. 

 

Saturday night’s show in Tampa was the 10th show of the tour, and so the band was well-oiled and raring to go at a venue they are very comfortable in, having played
