    The sun never really sets in Sweden during the summer, but that didn't deter Tom and the Heartbreakers from playing a lights-out show to over 12,000 people in the sold-out Stockholm Ericsson Globe Arena on Thursday night.

    Bass players are among the most under-appreciated professions in the world, a criminal oversight due mainly to the fact that when they're doing their job correctly, the rest of the band shines while they stand silently in the shadows.

    Ron Blair was on top of his game tonight, locking in with Steve Ferrone to provide Tom, Mike, Scott and Benmont with a solid foundation to leap off of and explore.

    Onstage, Ron's a rock, stoic and steady and happy to defer to his bandmates. Offstage, the longtime Heartbreakers bassist is a ham, often the one to crack a joke or provide some levity.

    Oslo, here we come! Come see us at the Norwegian Wood festival tonight and check back for more from the 2012 tour.
