    Eugene: Recap, photos & set list

    Matthew Knight Arena
    Eugene, OR
    August 7, 2014


     
    The clock on the dressing room wall glowed 8:59, which usually means Tom and the band have started their walk to the stage, but tonight was special.
     
    Earlier that day, Hypnotic Eye was named the number one album in the country, giving Tom and the guys their first number one hit in their illustrious careers.
     
    As the guys gathered together minutes before show time, Steve Winwood stopped in to say hello and offer his congratulations.
     
    “Rock ‘n roll is back on top, at least for one week,” Mike Campbell said with a grin.
     
    “Thank you, Steve,” Tom said as the rest of the guy looked on. “It certainly means a lot coming from you.”

Great show! I've always wanted to see them in Eugene, where my Grandmother lives. Thanks HCC for allowing us to get really fantastic seats! The band was AMAZING, as they ALWAYS are! Maybe even a little better than usual!! I loved the new songs and was blown away when they did Dogs On the Run and I Got a Woman!!!!! Also, I Should Have Known It blew the roof off that place!! I still really really really want to hear Fault Lines live. Fingers crossed for The Gorge or Red Rocks--see ya there!!! I LOVE this band!

Awesome Show! Every minute of the show rocked. The whole experience was surreal. One of the best shows that I ever seen! Thanks to the University of Oregon and people of Eugene for being such great hosts.

Thanks to Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers for playing in Eugene.  We loved every moment and look forward to seeing you back someday.

Listening to Tom and the band is always a treat.  Seeing them perform in flesh and blood never fails to be awe inspiring!  I catch myself remembering (and smiling) Tom's voice (singing and not!), those wonderful guitar riffs, and the great music!

They played alot of  music---why did it seem to go so fast....

The Spike story was great--that song will never be the same.  Loved the whole show--Rebels, Forgotton Man, I Won't Back Down, Refugee...every song played was the bee's knees!

Great job on the album! 

Many, many thanks.
