    In the coming weeks we'll be presenting video captured during choice moments on the 2012 North American and European Tours.

    First up, we take a trip back to June 22nd and England's Isle of Wight. On this night, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers electrified a capacity festival crowd, many of whom had endured substantial travel delays and most of all... plenty of mud.

    Press play and enjoy.

    Of the many highlights from the 2012 Tour, Steve Winwood's guest appearance with the Heartbreakers at the second of two sold out shows at the Royal Albert Hall stands out as one of the most poignant.

    As Tom explains in this video before welcoming Steve to the stage, there would be no Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers without the early influence of their English heroes, of which Steve is certainly one.

    Enjoy.

    Right before 8PM, a black van pulled up and out hopped Tom, sending the crowd into a frenzy with fans shouting his name, pushing vintage LPs into his hands to sign and snapping photos. Tom smiled and waved to the fans, stopping along the line to shake hands and sign autographs.

    With all the guitars onstage, it'd be easy for Benmont Tench to get lost in the mix, but the Hearbreakers keysman is always on top of it, whether he's on the organ providing a nice steady foundation for the rest of the band to play on top of or if he's over on the grand piano offering a foil to Mike or Tom.
