    What A Summer! - Vol. 1 - The Isle Of Wight Festival

    In the coming weeks we'll be presenting video captured during choice moments on the 2012 North American and European Tours.

    First up, we take a trip back to June 22nd and England's Isle of Wight. On this night, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers electrified a capacity festival crowd, many of whom had endured substantial travel delays and most of all... plenty of mud.

    Press play and enjoy.

Traveled from Dallas, Texas to the IOW festival. It was quite the experience. We were directly behind the two Tom Petty look alikes. In the video, when they turn, you can see my wife Wendy's face.

I've been to the Isle of Wight festival for many years - worked backstage in 1970 - and this was absolutely the best year (and there have been some GREAT years). Your set was great, thanks for coming so far.

Travelled from western Canada, and had a blast in our "wellies". We got to the grounds at 3:30 pm and worked our way up to 2nd row for Tom and the Heartbreakers! We didn't go to the bathroom, drink or eat for 11 hours! Our feet killed us but it was so worth it, and the experience of having 65,000 screaming people behind us was an experience we will never forget!
