Kansas City, MO
Sprint Center

Ever wondered why certain songs become immediate favorites while others are slow burners that creep into your consciousness and slowly take root?

"Good Enough" is a great example of the latter. The last cut on Mojo, the song is an epic blues rocker that's driven by Mike Campbell's searing guitar playing and features some of the best lyrics Tom's written on Mojo.

You're barefoot in the grass/ And you're chewin' sugarcane/ You got a little buzz on/ You're kissin' in the rain/ And if a day like this/ Don't ever come again/ Well that's good enough

"Good Enough" has always been good enough, but tonight in Kansas City, the band treated the excited Sprint Center to an absolutely explosive version that is certain to be the benchmark for this tour. From note one, "Cherry," Mike's "59 Gibson Les Paul Reissue, was at the forefront, spitting solo after sinister solo over Ron and Steve's solid rhythm and Benmont's Hammond B3 organ swells.

We're off and running on this second leg of the Mojo tour! Come out and see us soon and check back for more photos, videos and recaps from the tour!

Tom Petty is AWESOME! There is a group of us that go together every time they come to town and the best concert has been at Sandstone because he always come in the summer and it's so nice out! So, PLEASE TOM PETTY, Come to an outside Venue next time.... I promise you will sell out!! Outside Venues in the summer are so much better than inside the Sprint Center. Capital Federal Amp would be a great place for your next show THIS SUMMER!!! :)

Rockin!!!! Exceeded expectations! My 2 best friends and I had another one of those unforgettable adventures....... Hope you got the photo I left with the security guard. It is of TP, JL, HT and the stewardess that knew Mike Cambell who got JL the tickets... JL and HT are professional womens pool players. I am just lucky in life to be an experiencer of the fabulous! It was Reno, NV Lawler Events Center circa 1996. Taj Mahal opened and I my friend now Since JL is so famous now too.....and it was a really fun evening, I thought the band might like a copy of at least a couple good shots...hey we all looked better back then! I was in NYC recently and should have gone to see ya'll at Madison Square Garden....what was I thinking I could have slept through the meeting! Keep that MOJO working...you guys really got it. How about this camera phone shot...

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers rocked it out Tuesday nite at the Sprint Center! This was a Mother's Day gift from my daughter. What a gift it was! "She loves her mama!" What a "good girl" for getting us tickets to the best rock n' roll show I've seen in ages! Been a fan since hearin "American Girl" back in the day. What a wonder to watch my daughter groovin' to geniune, authentic rock music that I was diggin' at her age. This goes for the new tracks also! Like fine wine, keeps gettin' better with time. Just goes to show ya that true rock n' roll will transcend thru the ages! God Bless You Guys for the memories, then and now!

I have been a huge Petty fan from my wild College days in the early 80's to my grandpa days now. My favorite tune of yours is Wildflowers...would love to hear it!

I have liked all Tom Petty songs I have yet heard. I really enjoyed the live anthology and would like to hear TP&HB play 'friend of the devil" again.

Really getting psyched for Tuesday night's show. Sprung for MOJO seats so hoping to get a Mike Campbell pick! PLEASEOHPLEASE. Next change will be St. Louis next Sunday. This is probably only my 5th TPATH show-- I got onto this bus late in the game and am not ready to disembark!

Anyone know if we can bring cameras in this time? Last time I was told yes by Sprint Center but when I got to the door I was told no cameras allowed. I have front row tomorrow and I want pictures!

I've been psched for this show for MONTHS! It's gonna be great. I can feel it. I was hoping for some material from the Traveling Wilburys. But if you didn't want to I'd understand. What I really want, most of all, is "Here Comes My Girl". It's my all time favorite. Well, I wish you good travels and I'll see you on Tuesday!

I work at The New Dime Store in Brookside which is not far from the Sprint Center here in KC. In the basement the ceiling has been signed by alot of people, including Aerosmith. I thought maybe Tom and the band could come by there for a visit while they are in town for the show. He could sign the ceiling! Also one of our sales clerks used to live in Gainsville, long ago, and she served 'Tom room service once when he was back there for a show. But the biggest reason is that I am his biggest fan! I have loved the music for many years now. However, I am unable to afford to attend the show since my husband has been laid off for about a year now. See ya on the 13th? Thanx

Hi Guys! This will be my first time seeing you, and I am so incredibly excited!! I have been watching all the updates on the tour so far on your site and on Facebook. Since it seems like its unlikely that you will play my favorite song of all time, I thought I'd give it a try and see if you would consider playing it for this concert. Here Comes My Girl is one of my favorite songs, and I'd kill to hear it live. I have seen that American Girl is also on the setlist for several of the concerts so far, but I'd also like to beg that you choose to play it for KC as well. Thank you so much! I am sooooo pumped and ready for this concert! - Trisha

I have seen TP&HB quite a few times, but this show will be the first for my 15 year old son who has become a big fan. Looking forward to hearing the band again. They are like good old friends.
