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.

“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.

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.

The Heartbreakers are a crack blues band.
The new songs are taking hold.
There’s nothing like big amphitheater sing-a-longs.
Canadians love Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers.
