Winnipeg, MB
MTS Centre.

On their last night in Canada until the Toronto show in August, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers played Winnipeg, unleashing two hours of non-stop rock 'n roll that left the MTS Centre crowd screaming for more.

Joe Cocker and his eight-piece band " keyboardist Nick Milo, drummer Jack Bruno, guitarist Gene Black, organist Mike Finnigan, bassist Oneida James-Rebeccu, saxophonist Norberto Fimpel and singers Nichelle Tillman and Vivian Sessoms " capped their 10-show run opening for the Heartbreakers with perhaps their most inspiring show of the tour. From opener "Hitchcock Railway" to the set-closing "Cry Me A River," Cocker and company were on fire and set Winnipeg ablaze with their combustible combination of soul, rock and funky R&B. Thanks to Joe, his band and crew for a memorable few weeks of music.

Tom Petty kicked off the Heartbreakers' set with "Listen to Her Heart," singing "She's gonna listen to her heart, it's gonna tell her what to do. She might need a lot of lovin', but she don't need you' with the same sense of snide urgency found on 1978's You're Gonna Get It!. "Don't Come Around Here No More" served as a appropriate bookend to the set, another classic kiss-off song penned by the Gainesville, FL native.

Check back soon for a report from St. Paul with photos of fans and the band as well as a video message from Joe Cocker!

Another fantastic show. Played a couple of weak tracks (IMO) off the new album. There are better ones for sure and it is a great album. A Tom Petty concert should be a weekly event.

That pic of Mike Campbell squatting and nailing a guitar solo is prize-worthy. What an awesome picture that truly shows his passion, talent, and gift for giving a wonderful show. It's more than just Tom who leaves the crowd thrilled and satisfied; feeling they just saw one of the best rock 'n roll bands of all time. Thanks for sharing those pics!

The set list hasn't changed for 5+ years now. We have paid to see the same thing year after year from a group that has a HUGE cataloge to choose from, but seems to ignore it. Now 'King's Highway' has been removed from the set list, but yet we stil have to sit through 'Oh Well' and 'Mystic Eyes'. I would love to hear other Petty songs in the place of these two covers that we all have heard done before. Thank god for the Mojo tracks to save use from another Greatest Hits tour.

Not really a fan of the new album... Not really a fan of Joe Cocker... Not a fan of staid setlists at all... But it was a freakin' great show. Could've done without the dude screaming out for "Something Good Coming" after every damn song, but I can relate... sorta... Looks like we got a little short changed - Seems maybe "Kings Highway" was cut to give Joe Cocker some extra time on his last gig of the tour - which was fine. Joe was great too and I wasn't expecting that. Well done everyone. I'll be back if you will!

Once again TPATH were insanely awesome. I know I was standing for most of the show (sec 117)! They don't get old, they get better. Thanks for a great evening. Joe Cocker was really on tonight as well, tight as corset band backing him up. ***** Stars all around!
