    Florida shows are always special affairs on a Heartbreaker tour.
     
    Despite the simple fact that Tom and the guys have lived in California longer than they lived here, they will always be favorite sons of the Sunshine State, and Thursday’s show at Cruzan Amphitheater – the first of two Florida dates on the Hypnotic Eye tour – served as a big welcome back hug.
     
    The adulation from the crowd commenced just as the house lights dropped and before the first notes of “So You Want To Be A Rock ‘n Roll Star” were even played and

    “Rebels” takes on a new life when played in the South.
     
    Certain songs do that, whether they name-check specific places or have a feel about them.
     
    At a packed RBC Arena in Raleigh, NC on Thursday night, Tom introduced the track from Southern Accents, eliciting a big cheer from Heartbreaker fans in North Carolina.
     
    “It’s kind of a quiet song on my acoustic guitar,” he said, “but I promise you’ll get a cosmic reward at the end.”
     
    By the time the last verse came around, the arena was silent, listening intently to Tom and the band wind

    Allentown, PA

    25 years is a long time, but that’s exactly how long Heartbreaker fans in the Lehigh Valley have been waiting for Tom and the band to return to their corner of Pennsylvania.

    Their patience was rewarded Tuesday night with one of the tightest shows of the Hypnotic Eye tour to date.

     

    Everything about the Allentown show was spot-on, from Tom’s vocals to the band’s playing to the setlist to the stage lighting and front-of-house sound to the load out.

     

    The tour is a little more than halfway over, and it’s running like a well-oiled machine.

     

    So You

    “Take as long as you want with it, really. We’ll just hang back. Whenever you’re ready to sing, just step up to the mike.”

     

    Tom nodded at Steve Winwood as Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench started the melody to “Can’t Find My Way Home,” the Blind Faith classic penned by Winwood. Talk of onstage collaboration has been percolating all tour, but the rubber finally hit the road in the City of Brotherly Love. Rehearsals went well, and just after “U Get Me High,” Tom brought out their legendary tourmate.

     

    “Every so often, we get the chance to play with one of our heroes,” he said.

    “U Get Me High” is shaping into the big rocker on this tour that Tom and the guys envisioned when they recorded it for Hypnotic Eye.

     

    Usually slotted in the set list about halfway through the show, the current single off the new album gets the crowd moving and singing along. Michael Brown, the tour’s lighting designer, has created a technicolor rainbow look for it that vibes well with the lyrics and music. It’s quickly becoming a fan favorite.

    Ever since it hit the setlist a few weeks back, “A Woman In Love (It’s Not Me)” has been an absolute showstopper.

     

    It starts with Benmont Tench’s long, building piano intro before slamming straight away into a blistering guitar riff from Mike Campbell and a churning rhythm laid down by Steve Ferrone, Ron Blair and Scott Thurston. When Tom finally steps to the mike, the fire has been lit, and he delivers one of the greatest opening lines in rock history.

    “Well, fellas, let’s go get ‘em,” Tom said as the band assembled in the hallway outside their dressing rooms. “It’s our party tonight.”

     

    There’s nothing like playing the Big Apple. Everyone gets excited for New York City, and the biggest gig in town is Madison Square Garden.

     

    “It’s so good to be back in the Greatest Rock ‘n Roll Arena in the World!” Tom said at the end of “Mary Jane’s Last Dance. “We’re gonna give you the industrial-size, full-strength rock show tonight!”
