    Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers commenced the final leg of the 2010 Mojo Summer Tour in fine fashion Thursday night, a homecoming of sorts for a band whose roots can be found just up the road in Gainesville.

    With the legendary ZZ Top on board to open the tour's final ten shows, the Mojo tour promises to be a rock 'n roll fan's dream, and Billy Gibbons and company set out to prove it in Tampa with a killer set of trademark Texas blues.

    Despite having lived in Southern California for most of his life, Tom will always be a Florida boy at heart, and the fans in Tampa greeted their native son like a

    A little more than a month after postponing their show due to Mike Campbell's heat exhaustion, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers returned to the Blossom Music Center Tuesday night to bring the rock to Cleveland.

    Affable, Athens-based rockers Drive-By Truckers reprised their role as the show opener, dropping a nifty hour-long set that featured several songs from their new album, The Big To-Do. Frontman Patterson Hood dedicated "Road Cases," a deep cut off the band's much-lauded Southern Rock Opera album, to "the two best road crews in the world - the Heartbreakers crew and the DBT crew."

    25,000 feet above Buffalo and more than an hour after the last notes rang out at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center, and Tom Petty is still buzzing about the show.

    "Did you hear Crosby, Stills and Nash tonight?" he asks excitedly, taking a sip of coffee. "I stopped by the stage when we got there and listened to them for a few minutes. Man, they were great! Stephen's guitar playing was so good, and David and Graham sounded amazing. What a show!"

    What a show, indeed. Playing their last date on the Mojo tour, CSN shined, delivering a set worthy of their legendary reputation with classics like "Our

    Nearly half a century ago, Duane La Fleche proposed in his weekly column in the Albany Times Union that the New York Philharmonic eschew an offer to make its summer residence in Stowe, Vermont and instead set up shop in Saratoga Springs. It seems very wrong,- La Fleche wrote, "that a New York orchestra should have to look outside the State for a summer residence. Wouldn't the State Reservation at Saratoga Springs make a nice location?"
