    2017 British Summer Time
    Hyde Park
    London, UK

    July 9, 2017

     

    Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played their first show across the pond in five years for the final night of the 2017 British Summer Time concert series in London’s Hyde Park, topping a bill featuring Stevie Nicks, The Lumineers and The Shelters, among many more.

    Before the show, the vibe was loose backstage as friend and family from all over the world gathered to wish the band well.

    Just after 8 pm, Tom and the band hit the stage to a huge ovation from the nearly 60,000 packed into Hyde Park, ripping through “Rockin’ Around With You” to open the show. “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” was up next, leaving the crowd singing the thematic melody from Mike Campbell’s guitar solo a capella, long after the guys stopped playing following the final notes.

    After “Don’t Come Around Here No More,” Tom brought Stevie Nicks to the stage for a song that he said, “we both know, kinda.” “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” was it, and Hyde Park got a great performance with Stevie and Tom trading verses and big smiles.

This was my 5th Heartbreakers show and I can honestly say the band never sounded better. While the band was certainly playing much closer to my home in CA, this was a pilgrimage of sorts to see TPHB in the place where they first hit. The sound was spot on and the accompanying video/lighting was emersive. I've never been around a better crowd of music fans than in Hyde Park that evening. BTW, the Webb Sisters are an excellent addition. See you all at the Hollywood Bowl soon!
