    “U Get Me High” is the band’s current single, but the tune off of Hypnotic Eye that’s come the longest way since rehearsals in July is “Shadow People.”  The last track on the new album, “Shadow People” was run through a bunch of times by Tom and the guys during rehearsals to figure out the right feel and arrangement for the live performance. It’s one of those songs where the band moves and shifts depending on where Tom goes with it vocally, so finding the feel for it was important.

    The stars came out in Music City on Tuesday night to welcome Tom and the band back to Nashville for their first show in four years.

    Lucinda Williams, Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell and more were among the sold-out crowd at Bridgestone Arena, which played host to Tom and the guys on the 2010 Mojo tour.
     
    Steve Winwood, who splits time off the road between England and Nashville, received a hero’s welcome upon taking the stage and proceeded to play a beautiful hour-long
    opening set highlighted by the rarely played “Back in the High Life Again.”

    “Well I started out down a dirty road…”

    Standing in a lone spotlight on a dark stage less than two hours and a few hundred miles from his birthplace in Gainesville, FL, Tom sang the opening line to “Learning to Fly” at

    the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Sunday night, and you could’ve heard a pin drop.

    Everyone - from the lucky few in the front row all the way to the last fans sitting on the top row of the upper tier - was focused on the song, the singer and the story.

    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

    PPL Center

    Allentown, PA

    September 16, 2014

     

    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.

    “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.
