  • Paris Recap
    Jun 29, 2012

    Club Rex's official capacity is 2,700, but it seemed like there were 5,000 people crammed into the intimate Paris venue on Wednesday night for Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers' long awaited return to Francve.

    The buzz was huge before the show as people lined the streets waiting for Tom and the band to show. Fans hung out on the barricades that lined the path to the stage door, waiting with cameras and items in hopes of an autograph.

    Right before 8 pm, a black van pulled up and out hopped Tom, sending the crowd into a frenzy with fans shouting his name, pushing vintage LPs into his hands to sign and snapping photos. Tom smiled and waved to the fans, stopping along the line to shake hands and sign autographs.

    Just as he was reaching the end of the line and the backstage door, a young French girl screamed, "Paris loves you Tom!"

    Ever the rock star, Tom turned around, looked down over his sunglasses, smiled and said, "Oh, I love Paris, baby!"
