"Saturday night, and time for a little rock 'n roll!"
With that, Tom Petty tore into the rollicking guitar riff for Chuck Berry's "Carol," the first surprise of the band's second night at the sold-out Comcast Center outside Boston. Typically slotted for encores, "Carol" appearing in the first half of the show should have served as a not-so-subtle hint that Tom and the band were ready to rock.
My Morning Jacket once again got the night off on the right foot, opening with the gorgeous "The Way That He Sings." An epic "Gideon" followed, but the highlight of Jim James and company's opening set was the intimate acoustic trio of "Wonderful (The Way I Feel)", "Golden" and "Nashville to Kentucky."
The Heartbreakers delivered on Tom's promise of a little rock 'n roll with a dynamic two-hour set. "Mary Jane's Last Dance" and "Breakdown" both brought the packed house at the Comcast Center to their feet, and "First Flash of Freedom" and "Mystic Eyes" returned to the set after nearly a month-long absence!
