Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers are among the most "American" of bands in the history of rock 'n roll, but that doesn't dissuade folks north of the border from being amongst the Heartbreakers' most ardent fans. The Canadian shows on the Mojo tour have been excellent, and Toronto may have been best among them.
Crosby, Stills and Nash hopped back on the tour in Ontario, enthralling the audience with a stunning set that brought the packed house to its feet. Mention of native son Neil Young drew loud cheers before the band launched into a beautiful cover of Young's "Long May You Run." Watching these three legends " along with their crack band " play every night has been an honor and an absolute pleasure.
Greeted with thunderous applause, Tom and the band once again brought the house down in Canada, rocking the Air Canada Center with an electrifying set of hits that culminated in a raucous "Runnin' Down A Dream/You Wreck Me" encore that sent everyone away with a smile. Canucks know their Mojo, singing along and cheering at the end of "Running Man's Bible" and a show-stopping "I Should Have Known It" featuring some gorgeous guitar work from Mike Campbell and Scott Thurston.
