    Little Rock Recap and Photos

    "Thank you, Little Rock. This is our first time in Arkansas, but it won't be our last. We'll be back real soon!"

    With that, Tom waved goodnight to the 15,000-plus screaming Heartbreaker fans that packed Verizon Arena. Saturdays usually make for rowdy shows, but when combined with the fact that this was the band's first visit to Arkansas, tonight's show in Little Rock was arguably the band's strongest performance on the tour to date.

    Tom and the band love opening shows with the jangling rocker "Listen to Her Heart," but it was the one-two punch of "You Wreck Me" and "I Won't Back Down" that whipped the crowd into a frenzy.

    "Takin' My Time" - off 2010's Mojo album - emerged for the first time this tour, pairing perfectly with the band's cover of Bo Diddley's "I'm A Man" for a nice blues interlude in the middle of the set.

    "Melinda" also made its debut on the 2012 Summer Tour in Little Rock, giving Benmont Tench room to stretch out in the song's breakdown and pound away at his Steinway with reckless abandon.

    By the time Tom and Mike Campbell strapped on their Firebirds for "Runnin' Down A Dream," Verizon Arena was buzzing. Another great night with the Heartbreakers in the books.

I miss the song HAVE LOVE WILL TRAVEL played at the previous shows. It should be played every night, in my humble opinion I think it's a gorgeous classic like You wreck me, for example...
