It had been 28 years since I had since Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, so this was a special show indeed.
Like so few bands that are still together, their classic songs resonated as if they were just made yesterday.
Here’s some video highlights of the show. The quality is not great, but a fair representation of some of the songs.
It took the band a bit of time to get warmed up. There were times when I could hear some strain in Tom’s voice, but somewhere about 2/3rds of the way through the show, everything just worked.
Some times I am too critical of music events like these, and forget to just sit back, watch and enjoy the show. Towards the end I did just that.
Any Tom Petty fans out there? Did you go to the show in San Antonio last night?
