    Hamburg Show Recap

    Heartbreakers shows are typically loud affairs, but Sunday night's show in Hamburg was the anomaly.

    Not sure whether it was just a quiet Sunday night, if German crowds are just that polite or if they were so in awe of finally seeing Tom and the band live, but you could have heard a pin drop in the near sold-out O2 World when the first notes of "Listen to Her Heart" burst out of the PA.

    Just as the band wound down the opener, a young blonde-haired boy walked up the aisle on the front of the floor and rested his chin on the front rail, his eyes transfixed on Tom as he sang and moved around the stage.

    After two hours of music, hit after hit, the boy hadn't moved an inch, but the mood in the O2 had changed dramatically. By the time the band returned to the stage for the encore, fans were on their feet, screaming out song requests.

    Horsens, Denmark - we're getting ready for tonight and then on to Sweden and Norway! Keep checking back for show recaps, photos and videos!

ohohoh.... i have read the reviews of the show in Hamburg http://www.eventim.de/Tickets.html?affiliate=EVE&fun=search&action=search&doc=search%2Fsearch&detailadoc=erdetaila&detailbdoc=evdetailb&kudoc=artist&sort_by=score&sort_direction=desc&fuzzy=yes&suchbegriff=tom+petty on eventim (ticketseller) and i am afraid that the concert tonight in Cologne will not be fine because of the chairs in the interior and the security who forced the audience roughly to sit down when they stood up. May you can help ......

Once upon a time, 20 years ago, to be exact, there was a mother who had one wish and one wish only: to attend a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers-concert. But her then nine-months-old son was in pain, so she never attended that concert. For 20 years she would tell her son: "It's your fault I wasn't able to hear and see Tom Petty", until, by chance, she became aware of the Hamburg show and managed to get a ticket for both her husband and herself. Her wish had come true exactly 20 years after that sad incident and she won't miss the next one either. Thank you for still playing awesome music after such a long time.
