I know this is a Metal site, but Tom is a rock and roll legend. I've been listening to Tom since I was four, and this marks my first experience seeing him live. The man has got his energy and voice after all of these years. The crowd in the coliseum was louder than ever and sang every memorable song with Tom. One of the best live shows I've seen.

Setlist
1) Listen to Her Heart
2) You Wreck Me
3) I Won't Back Down
4) Here Comes My Girl
5) Handle with Care (Traveling Wilburys cover)
6) Lover's Touch
7) I'm a Man (The Yardbirds cover)
8) Something Big
9) Free Fallin'
10) Spike
11) Travelin' Light (JJ Cale cover)
12) Time To Move On
13) Learning to Fly
14) Yer So Bad
15) I Should Have Known It
16) Good Enough
17) Refugee
18) Runnin' Down a Dream

Because U2 and Tom Petty are both great bands.

I went with my older brother. His very first concert was Tom Petty when he saw him many years ago, around the age of 7. I noticed a lot of parents brought some of their youngins that looked to be from ages 6-10 for the experience. I'm sure that was their children's first concert as well. I'm happy Tom is still kicking ass, and still performing for all that have grown (and will grow) to love his memorable tunes.

I really wish Tom Petty would play amphitheaters instead of arenas all the time. I just can't afford tickets to arena shows, whereas I can grab a lawn ticket for super cheap at an amphitheater and still get a great view. Regardless of this issue though, this looks like a cool set although I think I saw on another forum that he was playing more songs on the first couple of dates.

Everything U2 did after 1991 sucks, imho.

How about those Rickenbackers @ Tom Petty ? :allan:

Not U2.

Agreed. They used to be a decent band (never great), then when they discovered they had no idea how to make a good album that sounded different to their successful stuff, they regressed and now spend their time copying their successful stuff note for note. Much like RHCP.

Everything U2 does & says is somehow enormous news. That Bono, the taxpaying fellow, is one the biggest hypocrites in the music business is always ingored for some reason.

Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill me is their best song ever. Fact.

yeah 100% agreed on that one, Nothing from the POP album is their best song haha. BAD might just take the cake for everything U2 related.

The POP album is completely ignored too.

*Gasp* We agree on something! Especially on the RHCP thing. God, they got awful.

Tom Petty is the fucking man.

Tom Petty rules, and Mike Campbell is one hell of a guitarist. :rocker::party:

it's amazing to know that Campbell played on every Petty track pretty much. I had no idea his "solo" stuff was basically the Heartbreakers minus their Drummer.
