    A month ago, we asked fans to submit any questions they have for the Heartbreakers' road crew. We received a number of great responses and now have the first installment of answers to those questions.

    A number of fans asked about the tour production logistics, including a question from pcpettyhead about the trucks and busses. In this video, Mojo Tour Production Manager Ken Graham answers this question and explains the process of setting up for a show. We also hear how Tom and the Heartbreakers travel to and from the shows and see what happens when they come off the stage.
