First things first, I am a huge Tom Petty fan. This was the 7th time I have seen Tom Petty, but the first time I had the pleasure of seeing him at my favorite venue, The Gorge.
Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers @ The Gorge
Video Concert Review
This show was great from the get go! Tom Petty started the set with some of my all time favorites: “Kings Highway”
“You Don’t Know How It Feels” “I Won’t Back Down” “Free Fallin’” “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” all within the first 6 songs of the set!
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers also showcased songs off their new album MOJO. I hadn’t listened to any of the songs off this album prior to this show, but I was very impressed. Mike Campbell really shined throughout the new songs and truly showed off his talent as a guitar player.
If you have never been to The Gorge, you are missing out! One of the coolest things about this venue is that the vast majority of the crowd is camping on the venues property. Partying long before and long after the show, the attendees at this show were down to rock.
The one thing that surprised me about this tour was that Joe Cocker didn’t join Tom Petty on stage. The last Heartbreakers’ tour featured an awesome combo set between Steve Winwood and the Heartbreakers. I was really hoping that Joe was going to join Tom for a song or two. I got to the show late and missed Joe. SO GET THERE EARLY
Final thoughts: YOU MUST SEE TOM PETTY! He is a rock and roll legend and does not disappoint in concert. If you are still skeptical about seeing him check out detailed tour recaps at TomPetty.com
