Cincinnati, OH 07/15


Jul 15 2010
Cincinnati, OH
Riverbend Music Center

Cincinnati's Riverbend Music Center was built on the banks of the Ohio River in 1984 on 15 acres donated by a local amusement park.

The land where the amphitheatre stands today was once the home of two popular roller coasters, The Wildcat and Shooting Star, which seems apropos considering the two bands slated for this steamy summer night.

Openers Drive-By Truckers are every bit the wildcat, a rag-tag bunch of scraggly rockers whose music lurks somewhere between rock and punk. The Truckers ripped through their hour-long slot tonight, obliging a fan request for "Sink Hole" before concluding with monster renditions of "Hell No I Ain't Happy" and "Let There Be Rock." Just like a shooting star, the Heartbreakers hit the stage for two hours of brilliance each night and are gone before you know it. If you catch a glimpse, even just for a brief second, it's an incredible sight that you'll never forget.

Anticipation was peaking in the minutes before the band took the stage in Cincinnati. "Oh Well" served as the catalyst tonight, the song's dark, dirty mojo igniting the thousands under the roof at Riverbend. "Honey Bee" stoked the flame, the Wildflowers deep cut blowing blues swagger into the mix. "Refugee" was the burning point as the thousands of sweaty Heartbreakers fans crammed into this concrete crucible screamed along with Tom to the song's memorable chorus.

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!

Driving in to watch the beloved Truckers open and play at a big venue, and to see my first Petty show. It will be a night.

Really looking forward to this show. I am bringing my youngest son (who is 21) who has never seen the Heartbreakers. Also bringing two of my best friends and treating them to Pit row 3 seats. They have been hit hard by the recession, and haven't seen a concert like this for almost 30 years anyway. I just want to see the look in their eyes as they love TP and the Heartbreakers. They always said they wanted to see them. I love this venue for concerts. It's my favorite, and I have been to many a venue! Get em going Jersey Boy! Brooks and Dunn Sunday too! Yahooooo!

I know you played this on your last tour but you sure can rock that song and whip the crowd into a frenzy with it. How about pulling that song out for us at Riverbend?

I have gotten to see TPHB twice, easily I could say that they were the best concerts I have ever been to, and I have been to a lot of concerts. I really wish I could make it to this one, it even lands on my birthday, but this economy has really put a slump in my concert attending schedule. So to all that do get to attend, I hope you have a great time!

It's my favorite on Mojo, too! If they play it, I'll probably rush the stage.
