    Chicago Photos and Recap

    Wrigley Field

    Chicago, IL

    Wrigley Field in Chicago is to Major League Baseball what Red Rocks Amphitheatre means in rock ‘n roll.

     

    Everyone wants to play there; and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers are no different.

     

    And while the pre-show predictions of rain turned out to be true, it did nothing to dampen Tom and the band’s performance in the least. From the very first note of “Rockin’ Around With You” to the last notes of “American Girl” just before the fireworks erupted from behind the stage in centerfield, Tom and the band had the 40,000-plus in attendance at Wrigley Thursday night along for the ride, sitting shotgun with the stereo up loud and the wind in their hair. Rising country star Chris Stapleton played an outstanding opening set, stopping by Tom’s dressing room with his band for a quick hello.

     

    Nearly two and a half hours later, standing in front of the largest crowd so far on the 40th Anniversary tour, Tom offered his thanks to the audience, both for enduring the rain as well as their support over the band’s career.

     

    “We have been coming to this town for a long, long time, Chicago,” Tom said after the last notes of “You Wreck Me” were played. “We played here on our very first tour 40 years ago, and we’ve been coming back ever since. Thank you for always coming out and seeing us all these years!”
