    Golden 1 Center

    Sacramento, CA

    September 1, 2017

     

    “Man, they sound good all the way back here!”

     

    Standing in the hallway outside of his dressing room backstage at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, CA on Friday night, Tom Petty smiled widely as his head bobbed to the beat of “Rebel Heart,” the first single off opening band The Shelters’ debut album released last year.

     

    The young Los Angeles rock four-piece aren’t strangers to the Heartbreaker camp, having opened the shows on last year’s Mudcrutch tour, but the connection runs deeper than simply serving as an opening act.

    Berkeley, CA
    August 22, 28, 30, 2017
     
    On February 17-19, 1977, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played three sold-out shows at The Keystone, the legendary rock club in downtown Berkeley played by the likes of Jerry Garcia, Ray Charles, The Talking Heads, The Ramones, Metallica and B.B King, among many more.
     
    It was the start of the band’s first cross-country tour supporting their debut album, and the Keystone shows were the springboard, hurtling the band east to shows in the Midwest, East Coast and, ultimately, Europe. 
     
    The Keystone closed its doors in 1984, but

    Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers started the home stretch of the 40th Anniversary tour in Vancouver on Thursday, rocking a sold-out Rogers Arena with opening act, The Lumineers.
