    Fenway Park
    Boston, MA

    Half an hour before show time, Richard Fernanadez stepped up the staircase at stage left and looked out over Boston’s Fenway Park.
     
    “I’ve been with these guys for a long, long time, and this is the biggest headlining gig outside of a festival I’ve ever done with ‘em,” the long-time Heartbreakers tour manager said as he looked out over the 36,000-plus that gathered in one of America’s most famed baseball cathedrals.
     
    And did Tom and the guys ever deliver!

    Sometimes the best shows of a tour come in the unlikeliest of places.
     
    A Sunday show in Portland, Maine after an insane, sold-out show at Boston’s historic Fenway Park may have appeared at face to be a potential anti-climatic pitfall, but Tom and the guys sensed the intimacy of the gig and room and brought it full-bore to the capacity crowd in Maine.

    Bell Centre
    Montreal, QC
    August 28, 2014

     
    For their last show in Canada, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers brought their A-game to Montreal’s Bell Centre, feeding of the French-Canadian crowd’s energy to play one of the best shows of the Hypnotic Eye tour to date.
     
    “A Woman In Love (It’s Not Me)” is quickly becoming a mid-show staple on this run. It’s a dynamic tune that features multiple band members and has one of the best first lyrical stanzas in rock history.
     
    She laughed in my face, told me good-bye
    Said “Don’t think about it, you can go crazy
    Anything can happen, anything can end
    Don’t try to fight

    It’s pretty incredible to watch Scott Thurston work during a show.

     

    At Tuesday night’s show in Toronto, the Heartbreakers’ stage-left multi-instrumentalist bounced from guitar to harmonica to keyboards to singing harmony vocals…and that was just the first two songs of the set!

     

    Scott’s contributions onstage are always tasteful and spot on, and the parts he handles are like the musical glue that helps hold the songs together.

     

    Every great band has someone like him, but there is only one Scott Thurston.

    DTE Energy Music Theatre

    Clarkston, MI

    August 24, 2014

     

    “I don’t know what they call this place now, but I’ll always know it as Pine Knob!”

     

    The mere mention of the venue’s original name elicited an eardrum-rattling roar from the 15,000-plus that packed the DTE Energy Music Theatre.

     

    Sunday was a special day on the Hypnotic Eye tour. With lots of family in attendance on a gorgeous Michigan summer night, Tom and the band were all excited for a rare outdoor show on this arena tour.

    United Center

    Chicago, IL

    August 23, 2014

     

    It’s so cool to see how the audience reacts when they recognize a song.

     

    At the United Center in Chicago on Saturday night, it only took hearing those three familiar guitar licks from Mike Campbell for fans to scream with approval at the beginning of “I Won’t Back Down.”

     

    A lot of Tom’s songs are like that. Whether big rock anthems or acoustic ballads, these songs are familiar to us, engrained in the soundtrack of our lives.
