    In the six weeks since the Mojo tour kicked off at Red Rocks, we've seen some pretty gutsy feats, both on and off the stage. The band, the crew, the bus drivers, truckers and the opening acts have all been fantastic - but nothing tops the courageous performance delivered by Mike Campbell in sweltering-hot St. Louis on Sunday night.

    As some of you may have heard, Mike Campbell fainted due to heat exhaustion towards the end of last night's show in Maryland Heights, MO. The show was stopped for approximately ten minutes and Mike returned to play another three songs with the band.

    Mike is feeling better today but is seeing doctors as a precaution. Mike sincerely thanks fans for their well wishes.

    Rumored to be the largest arena in the United States based on sheer physical size, Chicago's United Center certainly lived up to expectations. It is a behemoth, which makes it all the more impressive how effectively the band along with Robert Scovill, John "Haircut" Tompkins and the rest of the Heartbreakers' sound team can seemingly shrink the size of the room and give even the most massive venue an intimate listening experience.

    Cincinnati's Riverbend Music Center was built on the banks of the Ohio River in 1984 on 15 acres donated by a local amusement park.

    The land where the amphitheatre stands today was once the home of two popular roller coasters, The Wildcat and Shooting Star, which seems apropos considering the two bands slated for this steamy summer night.

    In celebration of last month's release of Mojo, fans across the country and around the world hosted home-grown Mojo listening parties. They took place at local watering holes, restaurants, and fans' homes, both inside and outdoors.


    The parties were a huge success. People had a blast!

    We have received photos, written recaps, and videos from many of the parties and wanted to share them with you. We sure enjoyed going through everything and are excited to share with you now.

    Have a look at the listening parties in our brand new community area. Leave a comment. Enjoy.


    Many thanks to all the fans

    "Good Enough" has always been good enough, but tonight in Kansas City, the band treated the excited Sprint Center to an absolutely explosive version that is certain to be the benchmark for this tour.

    From note one, Cherry, Mike's Gibson Les Paul Reissue, was at the forefront, spitting solo after sinister solo over Ron and Steve's solid rhythm and Benmont's Hammond B3 organ swells.

    Ever wondered why certain songs become immediate favorites while others are slow burners that creep into your consciousness and slowly take root?

    "Good Enough" is a great example of the latter. The last cut on Mojo, the song is an epic blues rocker that's driven by Mike Campbell's searing guitar playing and features some of the best lyrics Tom's written on Mojo.
