We just got in the door after being turned away at Blossom's gate (about 1 1/2 hours away for us) but it's o.k. as all that matters is that Mike feels better. Drink those fluids! We'll be there at the Aug. 31 makeup concert with everyone else just thankful that Mike Campbell and all the Heartbreakers are o.k. (Plus, we have tickets for Sat at Niagara Pavilion, too!) God Bless the very best musicians on the planet - Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. Best Wishes for a complete recovery.

Scary to hear about this, so we very much appreciate the update. . . hopefully it was just a ploy for attention (just kidding). Mike, listen to the docs and get your ass rested; we sure love you. That goes for all you guys!

I wasn't able to attend Sunday's concert but was there in 2008. It poured for about 15 minutes before the concert & it was hot & sticky the rest of the nite! I knew it was going to be a real scorcher with highs in the mid 90's & high humidity! I'm so glad to hear Mike is doing better he is such a great musician! I sure hope to make another concert this year, have been to 2 so far but will have to travel many miles to see them again but will do! I have a gut feeling that their Oct. 3rd show in Irvine, CA. will be their last due to the many problems in our world today & the upcoming war with Iran may bring Marshall Law to our country! I hope I'm wrong about that because seeing TP & the Heartbreakers is something special! So you guys stay cool because your not "Spring Chickens" anymore!

Unbelievable.... his fingers flying like lightning, & overcome by the atrocious heat (I was right in front of him when he went down) his love for us gave him super powers to come back on stage & continue to play.... The most memorable moment of my life were having these incredible seats to see Tom & Heartbreakers for my 10th concert. Having the great fortune to be close enough to make eye contact & express how much their music means to me gave me such joy :) Mike ~ rest up take care & Rock On!

Mike, please take care of yourself and remember-lots of fluids, light meals, get plenty of rest, no alcohol (yea, bummer), and LIGHTWEIGHT CLOTHING! We won't mind if you choose not to wear the coat and long sleeves! We love you!
