    Backstage before their set, Tom and the guys were loose, hanging outside the small cabins that served as dressing rooms and catching up with friends and family. On his way back from the stage, Lenny - who opened for the Heartbreakers on his first ever tour - made his way over to say hello and reconnect with the guys. Tom and Lenny shared a hug and a promise to stay in touch.

    The third time proved to be the charm Tuesday night as Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers rocked San Diego’s Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre under threatening skies after two postponements due to tour rescheduling and Tom’s illness last week.

    “Well, we finally made it, San Diego!”

    Whereas the Hollywood Bowl was surrounded by the kind of frenzied electricity that can only be found in Tinseltown, Saturday's show at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Irvine had a more laid-back vibe that permeated throughout the venue.

    "We wanna dedicate this next one to all our ex-girlfriends in the audience," Tom said before he and Mike launched into the opening guitar riff of "Free Fallin'," eliciting a wave of screams from the 17,000-plus fans packed into the amphitheater as they held their lighters and cell phones over their heads. For a band that dreamed of playing this hallowed hall while they paid their dues back in the '70s playing five sets for fifty bucks just over the hill on the Sunset Strip, the scene must have been surreal.

    Last week Front of House Sound Engineer Robert Scovill showed us his approach to mixing the band’s live sound as well as the state of the art equipment that he uses.

    The sound the band hears on stage while performing is an equally integral part of the show and Greg Looper and Mike Bangs are the guys making sure that the Heartbreakers can hear what they are playing.

    In the video below Greg and Mike explain what their jobs are all about.

    Friday night at Houston's Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion was much the same way for Billy Gibbons, the 60-year-old Houston native and frontman for ZZ Top. A few songs into their set, Gibbons introduced his mother, Lorraine, who appeared onstage to thunderous applause and blew a kiss to her son.

    That Little ol' Band from Texas dusted off classics including "Waiting on the Bus," "Tush," "La Grange" and "Legs" before gathering at the front of the stage for a bow amid a standing ovation.

    Tom grinned at the capacity crowd in the beautiful BOK Center before launching into the opening chords of "American Girl" on his blonde Rickenbacker.

    Two teenage blonde girls in the front row shrieked with delight as they recognized the melody of the Heartbreaker hit. A few rows behind them, three college-aged guys bobbed their heads along to the beat while trading smiles and high-fives. A few seats away, an older couple swayed to the music in each others arms, exchanging smiles and knowing glances.
