    Not sure whether it was just a quiet Sunday night, if German crowds are just that polite or if they were so in awe of finally seeing Tom and the band live, but you could have heard a pin drop in the near sold-out O2 World when the first notes of "Listen to Her Heart" burst out of the PA.

    The Blind Boys of Alabama once again opened the show on Sunday, delivering an incredible hour-long set highlighted by their stirring performance of "Amazing Grace" set to the tune of "House of The Rising Sun." Everyone with the Blind Boys of Alabama - from the band to their crew - were incredible to have for these Canadian dates, and the entire Heartbreakers family will miss having them out on the tour.

    Lots of people clamor to meet Tom and the guys on a daily basis, but it's rare when the shoe's on the other foot. That's exactly what happened when word got around backstage that Donald "Duck" Dunn would be in the house for Tuesday night's show at Germain Arena in Estero, FL. A legendary bass guitarist, record producer, and songwriter, Dunn is most well-known as the session bassist for Stax Records, where his iconic playing backed the likes of Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Albert King, Arthur Conley, Sam & Dave and many more.

    Scott Thurston is like musical glue.

    Whether it's his acoustic guitar strumming on "Yer So Bad" or "Runnin' Down A Dream," his intertwining electric guitar on "I Should Have Known It" with Mike Campbell, or his high harmony vocals on songs like "I Won't Back Down" and "Here Comes My Girl," the Heartbreakers' multi-instrumentalist on stage left does it all, always tastefully providing whatever is needed to best serve the song.
