    Watching Steve Ferrone every night is like taking a master class in drumming.


    The Heartbreakers’ long-time drummer from Brighton, England can be a total powerhouse on songs like “Mary Jane’s Last Dance,” “Don’t Come Around Here No More,” or “I Should Have Known It,” or he can get real quiet when a little finesse is necessary, like on “Learning to Fly” or “Wildflowers.”


    Songs like “It’s Good to Be King,” where the band stretches out a bit and never really plays the song the exactly same way twice, is where Steve is at his best, watching

    Just after 8 pm, Tom and the band hit the stage to a huge ovation from the nearly 60,000 packed into Hyde Park, ripping through “Rockin’ Around With You”

    July 5-6, 2017


    Milwaukee’s legendary Summerfest is known the world over as “The Big Gig,” and the long-time festival on the shores of Lake Michigan definitely lived up to its reputation. Nearly 50,000 fans packed American Family Insurance Amphitheater over two nights for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ 14th and 15th Summerfest appearances, more than any other amphitheater headliner in festival history.


    Chris Stapleton returned to the 40th Anniversary tour to open both shows at Summerfest, playing two great sets and proving once again to be a great pairing

    “He plays everything for us, and we can’t leave home without him,” Tom said on Sunday night in Canandaigua, NY during band introductions. “Ladies and gentlemen, Scott Thurston!”


    It may not be overtly apparent, but Scott is the band’s musical glue, playing the parts that often hold the songs together.

    Wells Fargo Center

    Philadelphia, PA

    July 1, 2017


    The City of Brotherly Love showed some serious love to a music brotherhood of more than 40 years on Saturday night as Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers returned to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, a city they played on their very first tour back in 1977.


    “Remember that gig?” Tom asked the rest of the band as they gathered in the hallway outside their dressing rooms before walking to the stage. “Rush played with us. It was at the Tower Theatre.”


    “I remember that place,” keyboardist Benmont Tench said as guitarist Mike Campbell and

    Wrigley Field

    Chicago, IL

    June 29, 2017


    Wrigley Field in Chicago is to Major League Baseball what Red Rocks Amphitheatre means in rock ‘n roll.


    Everyone wants to play there; and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers are no different.


    And while the pre-show predictions of rain turned out to be true, it did nothing to dampen Tom and the band’s performance in the least.

    Arroyo Seco Weekend 2017

    Pasadena, CA

    June 24, 2017


    Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers kicked off the third leg of their 40th Anniversary tour at the inaugural Arroyo Seco Weekend festival in Pasadena, CA.


    In the shadow of the fabled Rose Bowl stadium, Tom and the guys headlined after sets from Alabama Shakes, Dawes, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, The Meters and many more.


    “Into The Great Wide Open” made its tour debut, an apropos choice considering Arroyo Seco was the first Southern California show of the tour.


    Before the show, Tom and the band huddled in the dressing room, running through

    Mountain Jam 2017 

    Hunter Mountain, NY

    June 17, 2017


    “So the chorus goes like this.”


    Mike Campbell strums a black Fender Stratocaster as Marty Stuart watches the Heartbreaker guitarist’s hands glide across the fretboard running through “Crawling Back To You” in his dressing room backstage at the Mountain Jam festival in upstate New York.


    “I think I’ve got it,” says the country music legend, who started playing in Lester Flatt’s band in 1972 at the age of fourteen.

    June 16, 2017

    For the first two months of Tom Petty & the
    Heartbreakers’ 40th Anniversary tour, Joe Walsh has opened nearly
    every show, so the mood was bittersweet last Friday at the Prudential
    Center in
    Newark, NJ as it was the last night out with the legendary Eagles
    his incredible band and amazing crew.

    “Welcome to Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ 40th
    Anniversary tour,” Walsh said as his nine-piece band took the stage for
    final time in Newark, “with special guest, me.”

    Joe’s laid-back vibe and great show have made for an
    incredible pairing to start the 40th
