Cologne 06/25

Cologne,
Lanxess Arena

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers hit Germany for the second time on the 2012 Summer Tour, playing to a packed house at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne having hit Hamburg earlier this month.

With all the guitars onstage, it'd be easy for Benmont Tench to get lost in the mix, but the Hearbreakers keysman is always on top of it, whether he's on the organ providing a nice steady foundation for the rest of the band to play on top of or if he's over on the grand piano offering a foil to Mike or Tom.

It was most apparent Sunday night on "Runnin' Down A Dream," a song so associated with guitars that Tom and Mike play a specific kind of guitar - Gibson Firebirds - on it.

Benmont was an absolute mad man on "Runnin' Down A Dream" on Sunday, pounding out a counter-melody on the piano that married perfectly with the rest of the band.

Paris, here we come! Check back for more from the 2012 Summer Tour!

Flew all the way to Toronto last year, to see the Mojo tour, and it was a blast! Had 3rd row tickets there. And now they're playing right next door!(as in: I'm Dutch ;-) Got my 4th row tickets fixed just now. Man, 2012 is going to be a beautiful year! I might just go and attend a few more German shows while they're at it cuz frankly: Rock 'n' Roll simply works better in Germany. Its true! See you there!

Let me tell you that Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers are not just the greatest rock and roll band alive, they also have a management system that takes great care of his real fans. 2 years ago I travelled to Raleigh and Charlotte to see Tom in the Usa and i had great tickets through the presale, and now I was able to obtain 2nd row center tickets for both Mannheim and Koln shows. That's really something!!!!!

It'll be almost 36 years to the day that I saw Tom for the first time - in Cologne- supporting Nils Lofgren at the Sartory Saele. Welcome back as the headliner in a much bigger venue! This time I'll bring my 18 year old son. Or in TP-speak "What's good enough for me is good enough for him"!
