Taco Bell Arena
There's a moment.
The moment when all the guys are in place, the stage is dark, the back line crew is at the ready, and everyone in the arena is awaiting that first note.
When the first chord that opens You Wreck Me rings out and the lights go up, it's like a celebration of all that is great about rock 'n roll music.
Everyone is all smiles onstage. Ferrone and Ron are locked in together as Mike, Tom and Scott's guitars float over the top of Benmont's organ. When Tom hits the microphone, the band is full steam.
It's the perfect way to open a show

Viejas Arena, San Diego, CA
Tom glanced out of his dressing room door into the hallway of Viejas Arena in San Diego Sunday night and smiled.
There, standing in the hallway, were the Heartbreakers - Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench, Ron Blair, Scott Thurston and Steve Ferrone - dressed to kill and ready to take the stage and begin their 36-show North American tour in support of their new critically acclaimed album, Hypnotic Eye.
With flashlights flickering ahead of them, Tom and the band walked quietly down the dark arena hallway, past the loading dock
Tom sat down with NPR's Melissa Block for NPR All Things Considered, discussing everything from cheap speakers to George Harrison, and also Hypnotic Eye. Listen to the interview or read a transcript here.
