    Originally built as a a rodeo and horse show auditorium in 1957 with funds provided by President Franklin Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration, Albuquerque's Tingley Coliseum was packed to the rafters for Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers on the fourth night of the band's 2012 Summer Tour.

    With prior stops in Colorado and Arkansas last week, the Heartbreakers' tour picked up some serious steam heading into New Mexico, and both the crowd and the band did not disappoint.

    Welcomed onstage by an ear-piercing ovation from the capacity crowd, Tom and the guys launched into a hit parade that featured songs from across the band's catalogue. "Here Comes My Girl" continues to be a huge crowd-pleasing sing-a-long, but tonight's highlight was surely the sultry "Lover's Touch," Tom's smokey vocals accented beautifully by Mike Campbell's guitar riffs and Benmont Tench's organ swells.

    "Hard livin' killing me
    I need that woman to set me free
    And I want her
    I want her so much
    Cause she got the lover's touch"

    SET LIST
    Listen to Her Heart
    You Wreck Me
    I Won't Back Down
    Here Comes My Girl
    Handle with Care
    Lover's Touch
    I'm A Man
