    The rock 'n roll life is often compared to running off to join the circus, so it seemed apropos that Friday's show was in fact held underneath a circus tent as a part of the Live at the Marquee concert series held every summer in Cork, Ireland.

    Hot off a scintillating performance in Dublin the night before. Tom and the band didn't step off the gas pedal in Cork, playing a set that clocked in just over two hours with songs pulled from throughout their catalog.

    "King's Highway" sparkled in its second appearance on this tour, but it was the triple scorcher of "I Shoulda Known It," "Refugee" and "Runnin' Down A Dream" to end the set that really got the big top hopping in Cork.

    By the time Tom and the guys returned to the stage for the encore, the fans in Cork were on their feet, cheering and clapping for the band to take to the high wire again. The Heartbreakers were happy to oblige.
