    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!”

    Lockn 2014
    Arrington, VA

    A little rain and some scattered lightning couldn't keep Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers from rocking their headlining slot at the Lockn festival on Saturday night.

    Local authorities evacuated the venue at the end of Phil Lesh's set to allow for thunderstorms to pass through the area, but the music eventually won out, with terrific sets from Gary Clark Jr., Tedeschi Trucks Band, Lesh and Widespread Panic with special guest Steve Winwood.

    As Tom and the guys made their way to the stage, the musicians and friends who had played earlier in the day lined the backstage

    A few minutes prior to show time, Tom stepped out of his dressing room to find Steve Winwood walking back to his bus after hisopening set.

     

    The two old friends stopped to catch up and share a laugh about Lockn andthe weather delay the day before.

     

    "I heard you were playing with Widespread Panic, but there was actual widespread panic out there," Tom said with a laugh. "Everything got alittle crazy for a little while there."

     

    Order was restored Sunday night as the tour hit Darien Lake, one of few outdoor amphitheater shows of the tour.

    Half an hour before show time, Richard Fernanadez stepped up the staircase at stage left and looked out over Boston’s Fenway Park.
     
    “I’ve been with these guys for a long, long time, and this is the biggest headlining gig outside of a festival I’ve ever done with ‘em,” the long-time Heartbreakers tour manager said as he looked out over the 36,000-plus that gathered in one of America’s most famed baseball cathedrals.
     
    And did Tom and the guys ever deliver!

    Sometimes the best shows of a tour come in the unlikeliest of places.
     
    A Sunday show in Portland, Maine after an insane, sold-out show at Boston’s historic Fenway Park may have appeared at face to be a potential anti-climatic pitfall, but Tom and the guys sensed the intimacy of the gig and room and brought it full-bore to the capacity crowd in Maine.

    Bell Centre
    Montreal, QC
    August 28, 2014

     
    For their last show in Canada, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers brought their A-game to Montreal’s Bell Centre, feeding of the French-Canadian crowd’s energy to play one of the best shows of the Hypnotic Eye tour to date.
     
    “A Woman In Love (It’s Not Me)” is quickly becoming a mid-show staple on this run. It’s a dynamic tune that features multiple band members and has one of the best first lyrical stanzas in rock history.

    Said “Don’t think about it, you can go crazy
    Anything can happen, anything can end
    Don’t try to fight
