I'm so very honored to be able to see Tom and the boys again. I've been to every WA state show they've played for the past 30 years. His passing has left a huge void in my life, but still have his music and memories to get me thru the day. Rock on with your bad selves boys!!

I traveled 3,000 miles to see this show - for the 40th Anniversary I had to see this tour twice- it was outstanding!! Safeco staff was impressive & Tom & the Band were just as fabulous as they were in West Palm. The fireworks were a great ending to a perfect night. Marvelous ZMojo!

The Seattle weekend was a memorable one and our 22nd TP&H show.  We traveled 700 miles and started spotting various band members out and about on Friday at our hotel which lead to us figuring out the band was staying at the same place.  The day of the show we saw Ron, Benmont, and Steve in and out of the hotel.  Had a nice chat with Ron and my son talked to Benmont, who both were very gracious and friendly. We didn't ask for photos or autographs, just thanked them. Then in the early evening, much to our surprise, the band was all sitting downstairs, minus Tom, waiting to leave for the venue. We said hi to Mike and his wife and got ready to leave for the show. As we were leaving, I realized I had left my watch in my room and ran back upstairs. As I exited the elevator a guy was walking towards me with purpose and right behind him was the man himself, Tom Petty, walking towards me in the hallway. He looked right at me, said "hi" and all I could muster was "I will see you at the show and thanks for 40 years of music"..... He said "you bet man" and continued down the hall. The show was great and the band never disappoints. Sure there were a few issues, but that is what makes it cool and unique. Although 42,000 people is almost too many based on the logistics of the venue with a real blunder being having to empty water bottles purchased inside the venue, before being let on the floor, into a cup as you stepped on the floor. This held up the line for a long time delaying getting to your seat. Seeing the band outside of the concert, talking to Tom, and going to the show made this last weekend our most memorable TP&H experience. As they left the stage, I thought that maybe this was the last time we would see them, but I heard Tom say like he does when he leaves the stage, "Next Time". We can only hope!!

Outstanding concert but silent version of Crawling Back To You should have been replayed with sound. I still feel cheated.

Tom: My wife and I thought your gang did an amazing job. Absolutely loved the performance, and felt the immense sincerity in your voice as you thanked your fans several times during the performance. Thanks for a great memory!!! And could not wait to get in my car, crank on Sirius and Tom Petty radio to enjoy buried treasure and Heartbreaker tunes on the 3 hour trip back to Yakima on Sunday!!! Fantastic!
