    Heartbreakers Arrive In Europe
    For the first time in more than 20 years, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers are touring Europe, arriving yesterday in Dublin, Ireland for their opening show at the O2 Thursday night.

    Here are a few photos of the band's gear as it was loaded into a 747 cargo plane in St. John's, Newfoundland for the flight over the Atlantic to Ireland last Monday. Production Manager Chris Adamson (pictured below) and Guitar Tech Alan Rogan accompanied the gear on the five-hour flight, braving frigid temperatures without an in-flight movie or beverage service.

    We can't wait for tomorrow night at the O2 in Dublin! Check back for more from the 2012 Summer Tour!

Couldn't believe the energy and generosity of the band. They played non-stop, rocking us to one marvellous piece after another from Damn the Torpedoes to Mojo, they were all there. Encored as we hoped with Mary Jane and American Girl. Cherry on my cake was ending up with a plectrum one of the band had tossed to fans. Come back to Ireland again soon TPATH.. you ROCK!!!
