The Canadian shows on the Mojo tour have been excellent, and Toronto may have been best among them.
Crosby, Stills and Nash hopped back on the tour in Ontario, enthralling the audience with a stunning set that brought the packed house to its feet.

New Jersey may be home to Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi, but for a summer night in August, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers brought a little bit of California to the Garden State.
My Morning Jacket wrapped up their run opening for the Heartbreakers at the Izod Center on Tuesday night with an astounding set of songs from across their five fantastic studio albums, as well as one new unreleased song, "Circuital." Though they were only on the tour for three shows, MMJ brought an awe-inspiring energy to the show that seemingly converted the uninitiated into fervent fans every night.
With Tom sporting
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers returned to Boston on Thursday night, one of the towns that helped break them over 30 years ago, for the first of a two-night stand at the Comcast Center.
My Morning Jacket is the youngest opening act of the Mojo tour, with no band member old enough to remember the release of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in 76. Yet it's easy to see how the Kentucky quintet's dynamic rock anthems might have been influenced by hearing "Free Fallin'" on the FM radio as kids.

Even after more than 25 shows on this Mojo tour, it's rare that I hang around the artist dressing rooms before the show. The way I figure it, the minutes before an artist takes the stage should be left to them as they're about to share a whole lot of themselves with us.
Tonight in Hartford, I happened to be walking by Crosby, Stills and Nash's dressing room a few minutes before they went on and was treated to an a cappella rendition of "Woodstock" as the legendary trio warmed up their voices.

Most every show on the Mojo summer tour has been an exhilarating musical experience, but there are some nights when Tom and the band are just on. Sunday at Jiffy Lube Live was one of those nights.
Whether it was the bar set by Crosby, Stills and Nash with their outstanding opening set, the electricity created by over 20,000 screaming Heartbreakers fans or the steamy Southern heat, the Heartbreakers came to play in Virginia, proving once again the old maxim that Sunday shows should not be missed.
Hartford's up next! Check back soon for more tour recaps, photos, films and more!
