    Red Rocks Amphitheatre

    Morrison, CO

    May 30, 2017

     

    “Better safe than sorry, I guess. Here’s one we don’t normally do. Thanks for sticking with us through the storm.”

     

    Tom turned from his microphone and walked back toward Steve Ferrone as the drummer counted off, launching into “Swingin’” off the band’s 1999 album, Echo. Moments before, Tom and the guys had returned to the stage at Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver, CO after bad weather forced the venue to pull the band off the stage and ask fans to evacuate and take cover.

     

    But neither rain nor lightning could keep Tom and the guys from

    Red Rocks Amphitheatre

    Morrison, CO

    May 29, 2017

     

    Some live music venues are special because of their historical significance.

     

    Others are considered special because of their acoustics.

     

    And there are those spots that are special because they have a vibe about them.

     

    Red Rocks Amphitheatre is one of the rare venues that checks all three boxes.

     

    You could tell Tom and the band were amped just by walking into their dressing rooms backstage before the show. Everyone was all smiles and bouncing with a nervous excitement that only comes before playing legendary venues like Red Rocks.

    BottleRock Napa 2017

    Napa, CA

    May 27, 2017

     

    There’s something magical about the moment a large festival crowd recognizes a song.

     

    There’s the immediate cheer that usually lasts a five or ten seconds, and then a wave of movement that spreads across the audience as people begin to dance or put their hands in the air.

     

    By the time Tom got to the first chorus of “I Won’t Back Down” on a picture-perfect evening in Napa, the 35,000-plus fans at BottleRock were ready for him, and the sing-a-long that followed was loud and spine-tingling.

     

    “Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out

    (I won’t back

    Klipsch Music Center

    Noblesville, IN

    May 13, 2017

     

    Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers returned to the Klipsch Music Center outside Indianapolis Saturday night to open the venue’s 29th concert season with a hit-laden show spanning the band’s four decades in rock 'n' roll. 

     

    Hoosiers have a special place in their heart for Tom and the guys.

    Scottrade Center

    St. Louis, MO

    May 12, 2017

     

    Tom and the guys have many musical influences, but the band’s show at Scottrade Center in St. Louis Friday put one of their biggest front and center – the late, great Chuck Berry.

     

    During band introductions after “Don’t Come Around Here No More,” Tom told the story about meeting Mike for the first time and the Chuck Berry tune the legendary Heartbreaker guitarist played to convince Tom he should join his band, Mudcrutch.

     

    “He had this cheap Japanese guitar, and when I saw it, I thought, ‘Well, this isn’t gonna go well,” Tom said onstage in St.

    State Farm Center

    Champaign, IL

    May 10, 2017

     

    Mike Campbell is known the world over for being one of rock ‘n roll’s great guitar players, a fact that was only reinforced Wednesday night at the State Farm Center in Champaign, IL.

     

    Starting off with a great solo on the show-opening “Rockin’ Around With You,” the legendary Heartbreakers guitarist traded licks with keyboardist Benmont Tench on “You Got Lucky” before following it up with his trademark riff on “I Won’t Back Down.” But it was Mike’s playing on “I Should Have Known It,” digging deeper and deeper into the fret board of his sunburst

    FedEx Forum

    Memphis, TN

    May 8, 2017

     

    Though it’s only been in the setlist since Houston, “Crawling Back to You” has quickly become one of the centerpieces of the show each night.

     

    In Memphis, Tom and the guys tore through the first half of the show, including an arena-shaking “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” and a particularly inflammatory “It’s Good to Be King,” so the “Crawling Back to You” that followed began slowly, almost somberly. By the last verse, Tom sounded totally wrought, just like the protagonist in the song.

     

    Setlist:

    “I'm so tired of being tired
    Sure as night will follow day

    Amalie Arena

    Tampa, FL

    May 6, 2017

     

    It’s no coincidence Saturday night’s show at Amalie Arena in Tampa was a special night on Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ 40th Anniversary tour.

     

    Just 130 miles from Gainesville, Tampa is the tour’s closest stop to the band’s old stomping grounds in central Florida, meaning the backstage hallways, hospitality suites and catering would be full of family and friends visiting before the show. 

     

    Saturday night’s show in Tampa was the 10th show of the tour, and so the band was well-oiled and raring to go at a venue they are very comfortable in, having played
