Stockholm 06/14


Jun 14 2012
The Globe

The sun never really sets in Sweden during the summer, but that didn't deter Tom and the Heartbreakers from playing a lights-out show to over 12,000 people in the sold-out Stockholm Ericsson Globe Arena on Thursday night.

Bass players are among the most under-appreciated professions in the world, a criminal oversight due mainly to the fact that when they're doing their job correctly, the rest of the band shines while they stand silently in the shadows.

Ron Blair was on top of his game tonight, locking in with Steve Ferrone to provide Tom, Mike, Scott and Benmont with a solid foundation to leap off of and explore.

Onstage, Ron's a rock, stoic and steady and happy to defer to his bandmates. Offstage, the longtime Heartbreakers bassist is a ham, often the one to crack a joke or provide some levity.

Oslo, here we come! Come see us at the Norwegian Wood festival tonight and check back for more from the 2012 tour.

Why, oh why did You guys have to have seating on the floor!? Great show, (as expected), but it wasn't the 20 year-waiting that was the hardest part - it was the frustration of beeing so far away from the stage!

Thanks for a great night in Stockholm - Globen. Special thanks to my wishes: Do not Come Around Here No More. Unforgettable night, hoping it will not be 20 years next time.

Hi I found front row tickets and am now selling my tickets I pruchased through the fanclub. The tickets are Row 16, Seat 7 & 8. These are the best two seats in second price category (Row 15 are first class). As a fanclub member I have to pick up tickets on the day, but you can have them in the morning. Tickets cost me 1480 with all surchages, but those I stand for. So both tickets go for 1400 KR. Email me if you are inerested Pre Party at Bar Nada (Åsögatan in Söder). Petty tunes from 5 PM, then a 10 min subway ride to the show!!

Hi!! The song "Walls" has become one of the most important song of my life, I has meant SO much to me over the last years. I will be both in Globen and in Oslo and if there is ANY small chance that you could play it on one of the concerts that would mean the world to me!!!!!

14 JUNE: STOCKHOLM PETTY PRE-FEST @ NADA BAR, ÅSAGATAN 140 (T-BANA: MEDBORGARPLATSEN). From around KL. 17 all Petty fans can have a few drinks, listen to Pettys tunes over the loudspeakers and even buy finger food at Nada Bar. The bar is 5 mins from the subway and the subway is 10 mins from Globen. Be there or be square! PS: I don't know the ppl at NADA, I just like the bar and asked and they said it sounds like a good idea. So, what songs do we wanna hear? :-)
