    Tom smiled slyly at Wayne Williams (Benmont Tench's long-time tech who also works with Donald Fagen and Walter Becker) as he examined the plaque commemorating the duo's long association with the Beacon.

    It's a few minutes before Tom and the band take the stage for the final night of their five-night run at the Upper West Side theatre, and the mood backstage is loose.

  • The fourth night of the Beacon residency began as all the previous nights have, exploding out of the gates to raucous cheers with "So You Want To Be A Rock & Roll Star." 

    As Rolling Stone rock critic David Fricke commented in one of his extensive reviews of the first few Beacon shows, The Byrds cover has evolved night in and night out, especially Mike Campbell's guitar solo, which went from bouncy at the beginning of the week to a note-bending mind warp by Saturday. Saturday saw Tom and the guys' first stab at Into The Great Wide Open with a stellar "Two Gunslingers," along with selections

  • "Hey Tom, why not make this an annual thing?!"

    The belted fan suggestion between "Night Watchman" and "Good Enough" elicited a huge cheer among fans in the first few rows, an approving point from Benmont Tench and smiles across the stage at the Beacon Theatre Thursday night, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers' third night of this weeklong residency at one of New York's legendary rooms.

    Tuesday was the second night of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ five-show residency at New York’s Beacon Theatre, coming hot on the heels of Monday’s instant-classic concert.

    While Tuesday night offered up more tour debuts, #1 hits and deep cuts, it was a moment early in the concert that really showed how much fun Tom and the guys are having on this tour.

    As the cheers died down after the band ended “When The Time Comes” off You’re Gonna Get It, Benmont Tench turned toward his Hammond organ and glanced out across the stage at his bandmates from

The lights may have been turned off, the amps powered down and the guitars put away, but the room was still alive and very much electric.
