    “Better safe than sorry, I guess. Here’s one we don’t normally do. Thanks for sticking with us through the storm.”

     

    Tom turned from his microphone and walked back toward Steve Ferrone as the drummer counted off, launching into “Swingin’” off the band’s 1999 album, Echo. Moments before, Tom and the guys had returned to the stage at Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver, CO after bad weather forced the venue to pull the band off the stage and ask fans to evacuate and take cover.

     

    But neither rain nor lightning could keep Tom and the guys from finishing their second sold-out show at Red Rocks. After half an hour, the storm passed, and the Heartbreaker road crew went to work uncovering the band’s gear and readying the stage for their return. Tom mixed in some weather-appropriate lyrics to “Swingin’” and led the nearly 9,000 in attendance in some call and response on “Don’t Come Around Here No More.” After “Crawling Back To You,” Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench III led the band through a “Johnny B. Goode” jam that led into the guys’ second Chuck Berry cover this tour, the classic “Carol.”

This concert was number 12 for me. I live in Colorado and he loved playing at The Red Rocks. The Rocks themselves provide an enormous amount of energy. That in combination with this band created magic. Thank you Mr. Petty and the Heartbreakers for your music that touched my soul. You've lived in my heart since 1976. I am now 62 years of age. You've resided there a long time. And you will continue to be a part of who I am until the day we meet. RIP dear friend. With abundant love, Cyndi
