    Afternoon showers didn-t dampen any spirits for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers- triumphant return to the Motor City-s Palace of Auburn Hills on Thursday night.

    With a recuperated Mike Campbell in tow, Tom and the gang came out guns blazing in Detroit. "We-re in a city that likes to rock, so how -bout we play some rock music, ok?" Tom asked the Palace crowd, which responded with a resounding roar.

    The band kicked things off with "Listen to Her Heart" before leading the arena in a glorious sing-a-long to "You Don-t Know How It Feels." "Takin- My Time," from the band-s new album, Mojo, made its third appearance on the tour while "You Wreck Me" resurfaced after an eight-show hiatus.

    After wrapping up the Mojo portion of the show, Tom thanked the crowd for appreciating the new music, remarking, "Michigan always has great crowds. You know I married a Michigan girl." By the time the band reached the set-closing "Refugee," you couldn-t wipe the grins off the band members- faces - especially Mike-s.

    Next up: The Steel City! Come out and see us in Pittsburgh and check back for more photos, videos and recaps from the tour!
