St. Johns, NF
Mile One Centre

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers rocked The Rock for the second night, closing out their two-night run at the Mile One Centre in St. John's, Newfoundland on their way to Europe for the first time in 25 years.

The Blind Boys of Alabama once again opened the show on Sunday, delivering an incredible hour-long set highlighted by their stirring performance of "Amazing Grace" set to the tune of "House of The Rising Sun." Everyone with the Blind Boys of Alabama - from the band to their crew - were incredible to have for these Canadian dates, and the entire Heartbreakers family will miss having them out on the tour.

It was clear from the first notes of "Listen to Her Heart" that the second show in St. John's was going to be special. With two shows on this leg of the tour under their belts, the band was tight, knocking out a raging "I Won't Back Down" that featured some killer guitar work from Mike Campbell. Mike was at it again on "Good Enough," lacing into the slow blues burner off Mojo that was moved up earlier in the setlist for this show from it's customary spot in the latter part of the night. "You Don't Know How It Feels" make it's 2012 Summer Tour debut before giving way to a beautiful "Free Fallin'" that had nearly everyone in attendance singing along with Tom on the chorus. "It's Good To Be King" continues to be a mid-set scorcher, but Sunday's highlight had to be the sublime "Something Good Coming." It's not a big hit or crowd favorite yet, but you can tell how much the band enjoys playing it by the smiles on their faces.

Listen to Her Heart
You Wreck Me
I Won't Back Down
Here Comes My Girl
Handle with Care

Oh Well
Something Big
You Don't Know How It Feels

It's Good To Be King
Something Good Coming
Learning to Fly
Yer So Bad

Looks like the public on sale has been moved to Saturday from the previously announced Thursday. Hopefully that gives us time for a presale

Been a member of the club for a while, have seen a couple of shows, was really hoping for a presale for the St. John's show, but your email said no details till Friday, and that presale was only for some shows. Any chance? You guys could probably sell out a week of shows here. :)
