"Well, hello New York!" Tom said as the lights dimmed at the outset of Wednesday night's sold-out show at New York's famed Madison Square Garden. "It's great to be here with you once again, here in this great temple of rock!"
Kicking things off with "Listen to Her Heart," Tom and The Heartbreakers blazed a two-hour trail through their hit-heavy catalog, including several songs off Mojo. The new blues of Mojo seems to really energize both artist and audience, especially last night after a scorching opening set from the legendary Buddy Guy.
As the last notes of "American Girl" echoed in The World's Most Famous Arena, the Heartbreakers gathered at the lip of the stage and bowed. "Thank you," Petty said before walking off for the time. "'Til we meet again, New York."
