New Jersey may be home to Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi, but for a summer night in August, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers brought a little bit of California to the Garden State.
My Morning Jacket wrapped up their run opening for the Heartbreakers at the Izod Center on Tuesday night with an astounding set of songs from across their five fantastic studio albums, as well as one new unreleased song, "Circuital." Though they were only on the tour for three shows, MMJ brought an awe-inspiring energy to the show that seemingly converted the uninitiated into fervent fans every night.
With Tom sporting a long black duster jacket, the Heartbreakers took the stage promptly at nine o'clock and proceeded to pulverize the packed Izod Center with a blistering set of hits, deep cuts, covers and new songs off Mojo. "Mary Jane's Last Dance" stewed and simmered to a boil, but the highlight of the night may have been the guitar interplay between Mike Campebll and Scott Thurston on an explosive "I Should Have Known It."
