    Fonda Theatre, Night Two: Recap, Photos & Set List!

    June 4, 2013

    Los Angeles, CA

    "You just missed Phil Jackson."

    Tom smiled widely standing in the front lounge of his tour bus, the kind of perma-grin all true Lakers fans have upon meeting the legendary basketball coach that brought five championship trophies to Tinsel Town. Eleven Rings, Jackson's new book, lay on a nearby table, autographed to Tom by the Zen Master. 

    Whether Jackson's vist influenced the night's performance or not, no one will ever really know, but Tom and the guys seemed especially strong on Tuesday night, the second show of this West Coast residency at the Fonda. Tuesday seemed blueser than Monday, with "Baby Please Don't Go" and "I Just Want To Make Love To You" plugged in early in the set. The band paid tribute to J.J. Cale with a great run at "I'd Like To Love You Baby," but it was the acoustic segment of the show - "Rebels," "Two Gunslingers," "Time To Move On" and "Friend of the Devil," sandwiched in between a spaced-out "Tweeter And The Monkey Man" and a killer "It's Good To Be King" - that really made the night tonight. "Rebels" continues to shine in its acoustic re-arrangement and "Time To Move On" seemed to segue beautifully into "Friend of the Devil."

    Back at the Fonda tonight! Keep checking back for more from the 2013 Summer Tour!

I read with envy the comments from you lucky people who have witnessed TPATH in concert.  I love their music and them and take great delight in checking out the pics and reviews on here.  Please keep up the good work everyone. Long may Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers go on!

This show was the best TPATH show I've ever seen.

The one thing TP makes you feel during a show is... good. He's having a blast. We're having a blast. And around and around it goes.

Best band ever.

So much love for them.

I'm 27, I've been a Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers fan since I could even remember. While this is a good line-up and many are excited for these, "deep cuts," to be played. It is my first time, ever actually getting the opportunity to see Petty live. Songs like Mary Jane's last dance, Breakdown, Last DJ and Running Down a Dream have been an anthmn for my generation.

I often boast TP&H as a band who has effectivley spaned five decades and wrote Mary jane's Last Dance, the last great American Drug Song. I ask myself what were the key components/ songs to make this possible? I Argue that songs like, "The Best of Everything," and "The Gunslingers," were not nearly as influential or magical as the latter. So Saturday, please, make this California boy who was born in the wrong generation happy by playing some of the stuff that made you, in his eyes,  idols and american treasures.

I understand that you could want to hear the big hits if it was your first time seeing him, but please understand that the 2005, 2006, 2008, and 2010 American tours all had predominantly big hits. This is the first time in 2002-2003 that the band has changed the setlist night after night and played some deeper cuts.

It has liberated the band, and it shows in their positive/elated attitudes at these smaller shows. You saw something real special with this setlist. They'll do the big hits in the big arenas. You saw something far more rare.
