Wichita, KS 04/26


Apr 26 2012
Wichita, KS
Intrust Bank Arena

All Heartbreakers concerts are cause for celebration, but Thursday night in Wichita had a particularly celebratory mood as Steve Ferrone celebrated his birthday earlier in the week.

Ferrone was a monster tonight, dropping some killer fills when appropriate while laying down a solid rhythm foundation all night along with bassist Ron Blair for Tom and the rest of the band to shine.

Tom once again dedicated a gorgeous version of "The Best of Everything," a track off Southern Accents produced by Robbie Robertson, to the late great Levon Helm, and "Have Love Will Travel," one of Tom's personal favorites off The Last DJ, returned to the set list. "Saving Grace" made its debut on the 2012 Summer Tour, but it was "It's Good To Be King" that rocked the Intrust Arena in Wichita to its core, leaving thousands of Heartbreakers fans cheering as Mike Campbell squeezed everything he had out of his sunburst Gibson guitar.

JazzFest! We're on our way to New Orleans for Saturday's show on the main stage at the legendary New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, so come on out and see us!

Listen to Her Heart
You Wreck me
I Won't Back Down
Here Comes My Girl
Handle with Care
The Best of Everything
I'm A Man
Something Big
Have Love Will Travel
Free Fallin'
Saving Grace
It's Good To Be King
Time to Move On
Learning to Fly
Yer So Bad
I Shoulda Known It
Good Enough
Runnin' Down A Dream

Came to this sight this morning to check out the tour dates and at the top of the list was Broomfield Co...darn no Red Rocks Scrolled down a little further down the list ... Wichita? Wichita...Kansas? No fn way! Wichita? The Wichita in KANSAS? Since the new arena has come to town we have been overloaded with country acts so this is beyond belief. Off to tell Dorthy to put on that Party Dress and to leave Toto with the Good Witch cause Petty is comin to town!
