Lucca 06/29

events

Jun 29 2012
Lucca,
Piazza Napoleone

Despite celebrating into the early morning hours the night before, when Italy beat Germany to advance to the EuroCup finals, Lucca was ready to party Friday night as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers kicked off the 15th annual Lucca Summer Festival with a blistering performance in the outdoor Piazza Napoleone.



A broken down bus didn't deter Jonathan Wilson and company, who barely made it to Lucca - a small walled town in northern Italy 20 minutes outside Pisa - in time for their opening set. As the light faded in the town square, Tom and the band took the stage to rapturous applause from the thousands of Italian fans packing the piazza. For the next two hours, the band ripped through their set before bringing out the night's highlight as a surprise for the encore: "Two Men Talking." Driven by a thunderous, menacing rhythm locked down by Steve Ferrone and Ron Blair, this tune features absolutely killer guitar work from Mike Campbell.



An insight into what Tom and the guys might have in store for their next studio record? Only time will tell.

That's the news we have waited for 20 long years!! In the meantime we've seen the world changing, we've grown old, we've lost hopes, money, faith, we've seen people going away and certainties fading, but luckily the passion for your music has remained unchanged ;-)
