SLQ: Petty wont back downBy Alexandra Andersen Published: October 07, 2010 Suits, stoners, soccer moms, hippie chicks, bikers, bros, hipsters and party girls the eclectic range of fans at Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Oct. 2 Irvine concert proved that the groups music has yet to back down. Concert-goers young and old filled almost every seat and patch of grass at the Verizon Amphitheater to be a part of the classic bands Mojo Tour, aptly named after their first album release in eight years. A digital copy of Mojo was included with every online ticket purchase, which allowed fans to brush up on the new tunes before the concert began. Judging by the influx of attendees well after 8 p.m. and the massive tailgating party in the parking lot, hardly anyone took the 7:30 p.m. start time seriously. As a result, opener ZZ Top played their last show of the tour to a much smaller crowd than the concerts headliners. Texas blues-rock legend, ZZ Top, played hit songs, like Sharp Dressed Man, Legs and La Grange, ending their 65 minute set with 1975s Tush, as the fashionably late found their seats. After intermission, excited fans grew restless. Suddenly, the stage lit up and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers started playing Listen to Her Heart. The entire crowd seemed to jump to their feet at once, belting out the lyrics along with frontman Petty, while the air appeared to immediately fill with the smoke of, um, some funny smelling cigarettes. The group formed in 1976 after Petty was in several other bands that didnt last. Currently, the Heartbreakers are comprised of guitarist Mike Campell, keyboardist Benmont Tench, bassist Ron Blair, guitarist/keyboardist/harmonica player Scott Thurston and drummer Steve Ferrone. The soulful band who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002 has had a multitude of hit singles off their 12 studio albums. They continue to show that their popularity isnt faltering, which was proven by the packed amphitheater and sold out shows across their 2010 tour. What makes a Tom Petty concert a Tom Petty concert, is the communal feeling audience members experience. The night started with groups of meandering fans making their way to their seats, but by the end of the show, the crowd swayed and sang in unison, sharing, er, cigarettes. Saturdays attendees were treated to a rendition of the bands most well-known songs. The lineup included I Wont Back Down, Free Fallin, Mary Janes Last Dance, Breakdown, Learning to Fly and Refugee. The encore included Running Down a Dream and American Girl. While the crowd sang their hearts out during these songs, the moment the Heartbreakers began playing songs off their latest album, listeners flocked to the restrooms and concession stands typical for any band whose hits are decades old. Petty, who turns 60-years-old this month, showed the crowd hes still got it after 34 years with the Heartbreakers. His distinct nasally yet melodic voice hasnt changed a bit, and the aging rockers proved that youre only as old as you feel. The lyrics from I Wont Back Down appear to have become the groups anthem as they show fans theyre here to stay: No Ill stand my ground / Wont be turned around / And Ill keep this world from draggin me down / Gonna stand my ground.

Voldar: Tom Petty in ace form but low on surprises LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Tom Petty turns 60 this month, and his Heartbreakers are about the same age. It's simply amazing how good these guys continue to be in concert. Friday's sold-out show at the Hollywood Bowl was another triumph for one of rock's greatest bands -- a showcase of singular musicianship, sonic clarity, killer songs and the bond between performer and fan. There's really only one thing missing: surprises. The lone knock on the band during its past several tours -- and it's decidedly nitpicky -- is the staid set list. Sure, a fan seeing the band for the first time wants and gets a plethora of greatest hits, but those who've been going since the LP era can go home a little frustrated. There were several reasons for the veteran faithful to get excited about the current tour. For one, Petty, guitarist Mike Campbell and keyboardist Benmont Tench were fresh from a reunion album and mini-tour as Mudcrutch, the precursor to the Heartbreakers. The disc had a more country-rock vibe, and the show included an epic, 15-minute take on "Crystal River" that showed how good the guys can be as a jam band. There also were the past year's releases of "The Live Anthology," a four-disc concert memoir that features so many great old album tracks the band has mothballed for ages, and the home video release of "Classic Albums: Damn the Torpedoes," which chronicles the recording of the 1979 album that catapulted them into the rock 'n' roll stratosphere. This tour was a perfect chance to revisit that outstanding old material and get a few plugs in at the same time. No such luck. "Refugee" was the only song in Friday's set from "Torpedoes," and when Petty announced that they were going to play "an album track," it turned out to be "Kings Highway," a top 5 mainstream rock single from 1991's "Into the Great Wide Open."It sounded great, though. But enough griping: This was, after all, a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers show, and it was outstanding. Opener "Listen to Her Heart," a beat slow and even more Byrds-y, was followed by a dirty-sounding "You Don't Know How It Feels." And the band got its hard rock off with the (pre-Buckingham/Nicks) Fleetwood Mac cover "Oh Well," which would shred in anybody's live set but gave the underrated Campbell a chance to play more like Vivian Campbell as Petty shook his maracas. Killer. After that rave-up, it's funny that it took a slow song, "Mary Jane's Last Dance," to get the folks in the upper levels out of their seats. Petty's always been able to work a crowd, and he got them to sing the "Learning to Fly" chorus gently and repeatedly as he laid down vocal fills over them. Petty's voice has held up remarkably well and sounded near-perfect all night. The band played four songs in a row from this year's "Mojo," and all sounded even better than on the record. The post-"Mudcrutch" album, promised as a back-to-basics set, features longer songs with more stretched-out jams. The new ones found their rawer edges onstage and fit right in alongside the classics. The "Mojo" barrage ended with lead single "I Should Have Known It," a Zeppelinesque cruncher built around the seething line, "It's the last time you're gonna hurt me." Expect it to be a concert staple going forward. Petty's always been an industry trailblazer, but there's one trend he might consider following: The Heartbreakers are the perfect band for a tour where they play one of their many classic albums side-to-side. With their skills still in peak form, imagine how stirring it would be to hear something like "Louisiana Rain," "Southern Accents," "The Wild One, Forever" or "Straight Into Darkness" -- all of which are on the "Live Anthology." http://uk.reuters.com/article/idUKTRE6922IL20101003

Voldar: Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers at US Airways Center Last Night Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers US Airways Center October 7, 2010 Phoenix fans had to wait a few extra weeks to see Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Once the veteran heartland rocker took the stage, though, they didn't have to wait for the hits. Petty came out swinging, opening with four of his more successful singles: "Listen to Her Heart," "You Don't Know How It Feels," ""I Won't Back Down" and "Free Fallin.'" It was the last night of Petty's current tour and it felt like it. The Florida native, who turns 60 in two weeks, seemed sharp but not eager after months on the road. That's not necessarily a bad thing, especially since Petty and his five-piece band seemed ready to indulge fans of his best-selling record. That is, of course, his diamond-certified 1993 greatest hits album. ​ Actually, the loyal but not-near capacity Phoenix crowd earned the straight-forward, hit-heavy set it got. The ill-fated September 26 show (Petty was battling sinus and throat infections, we're told) was actually itself a makeup date for a May show bounced back because the band's new record, Mojo, was late out the door. Five months later, it hardly mattered whether Mojo was on shelves. An announcer informed the crowd that they could download the album for free by texting a special number ("The price was included in the ticket... You already paid for it!" the voice declared) before the show but it didn't look like any area cell towers were in danger of exploding from a sudden onslaught. Mojo's first track, "Jefferson Jericho Blues," didn't get played until late in the hour and 45 minute set. After Petty pulled a deep cut, "Kings Highway," from 1991's Into The Great Wide Open, mind you. Mojo's "Good Enough," which followed, may have caused beer lines to double in length (there was a lot of alcohol consumed at this show considering it was on a Thursday night) were it not the time the light guy decided to flip on the pretty green laser beams. "Learning To Fly," which began simply with Petty strumming his acoustic guitar and had a fantastic piano part added in, was the night's stand-out offering. "American Girl," which came during the encore, along with "Breakdown" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance," which had nifty guitar solos added in, were other highlights. Pretty much what you'd expect, right? http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/uponsun/2010/10/tom_petty_and_the_heartbreaker_2.php

Voldar: Tom Petty Damn the Torpedoes Blu-ray Audio in November Geffen Records (according to a retailer alert) has plans to bring the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers 1979 album Damn The Torpedoes to Blu-ray Audio on November 9th. The tech specs havent yet been released for this title but Amazon in their PRE-ORDER listing, which carries a $26.99 price tag, lists it as being a 2-disc set and offers the cover art (pictured above). This is first of all not to be confused with the Classic Albums Blu-ray Disc release of this album, from (Eagle Rock Entertainment). This release, UNLIKE that classic albums release, will actually contain the entire album in its original form with what one would assume to be a lossless audio codec and a Stereo presentation, with a slight chance of a 5.1 surround mix as well. Again though, that last part is just speculation. For example, Tom Petty has expressed his love for the Blu-ray format as way to deliver his music, he has several BD-A (Blu-ray Disc Audio) releases already available such as his and The Heartbreakers latest album Mojo and The Live Anthology: Ultimate Collectors Edition Box Set, both of which were through Reprise. One thing we do know via the pre-order listing is that this does include a digital download of the album itself in likely MP3 format. More information on this release hopefully soon, or well try our beats to bring you a review next month. The track listing for this album is listed below, which includes these classic tracks: * 1. Refugee * 2. Here Comes My Girl * 3. Even The Losers * 4. Shadow Of A Doubt (Complex Kid) * 5. Century City * 6. Dont Do Me Like That * 7. You Tell Me * 8. What Are You Doin In My Life? * 9.

SLQ: Tom Petty breaks hearts, then wins them back with Rock N RollBy Alexandra Bozich Published: Wednesday, October 13, 2010 After Tom Petty disappointed his fans by cancelling his original San Diego show on Tuesday, Sept. 28, he made it up to them on Tuesday, Oct. 5. His original concert had been cancelled after his doctor instructed him not to sing for a few days due to a throat issue. Luckily, for those who bought tickets to the original concert, he was able to perform just one week later than initially planned. Despite the rain and cold, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers gave one hell of a performance at the Cricket Wireless Amphitheater in Chula Vista. Fans came out despite the rain, and it's a good thing they did. Tom Petty opened with one of his older classics, "Listen To Her Heart," and then moved into every stoner's favorite song, "You Don't Know How It Feels." Not surprisingly, the scent in the air changed instantly. Petty then continued with many popular hits for a while before he focused a chunk of his set list on songs from his newest album "Mojo," which was released this summer on June 15. Many of Petty's older fans were not pleased with this new album, causing the atmosphere at the concert to fizzle for a bit during this section of his show. After playing four songs in a row from "Mojo," the legend finally settled back in with the classics and kicked up the vibe by playing "Learning to Fly." The band was lively and kept the songs exciting, playing "Refugee" before exiting the stage. Of course everyone was curious as to why a few of his best songs still had not been played. So, after much yelling and cheering, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers met on stage one last time and gave the crowd an incredible encore. They played "Runnin' Down A Dream" and ended once and for all with "American Girl." The beauty of Tom Petty and his music was evident when looking out at the crowd. There were people of all ages enjoying the show, some sitting and relaxing on the lawn and others dancing nonstop and trampling over anyone, or anything, in their way. At such a large venue, it's sometimes hard for a band to captivate the entire audience. The people in the front seats have a more personal experience with the band, however it was clear that the people way back in the lawn didn't feel left out. That's often hard for a band to do, but everyone was loving the show. From the people in the front row, all the way to the old guys leaning against the beer vendor in back, everyone was clearly enjoying themselves. It's no wonder that Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers were inducted into the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame in 2002. They are up there with some of the most popular artists of all time ,like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix. However, one thing that sets Tom Petty apart from many of the other inducted bands is the fact that he's still up and playing. The fact that his fans are still able to see someone who is in the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame is quite a privilege. I really recommend that people head out to one of his shows, as it's definitely an experience that I will remember for the rest of my life. Knowing that I have seen a Rock N' Roll legend is pretty surreal. http://www.theusdvista.com/arts-culture/tom-petty-breaks-hearts-then-wins-them-back-with-rock-n-roll-1.1688114
