Just thought you all should know. I went to the concert last night in Raleigh. Brian Setzer opened and that was fun, and then we got Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers for a couple hours! Woo! We got two new songs.... I can only remember one of the was called "The Sun is Coming" I believe. And two covers, one of Mr. Breeze, and the other of Gloria. All great fun. Tom Petty rocks!

Yeah, that concert rocked my face! Woot~!

Tom Petty does rock, indeed. And now I hate you for seeing that concert and me not. Damn you, Jaguar! You lucky bastard!

Wow, I thought I was the only person under 30 to be a Tom Petty fan...

Nope, he's one of my favorite artists.

Does anyone else have Johnny Cash's Unchained, where the Breakers are the backing band? Awesome album.

I've always thought he was entertaining. Maybe it's because we went to the same high school (in different decades).

Well I went to see Petty during my senior year of HS in spring 95. The show rocked hard, but the funny part was in the years to come, as during college I met what had to be dozens of different people who all mentioned that they were at the show as well. We've pretty much extrapolated out that 84,000 people went to that show, which is odd since United Center only holds about 20,000. I've seen him twice and would have seen him this summer but his tour inexplicably didn't stop in Chicago.

As Kaz said, no need to feel alone as many of us teenagers/young adults think that Tom Petty does indeed, ROCK. My favorite song is one of his newer, "Room at the Top"

Does Cash do "Won't Back Down" on this album? God, I love that song with Cash doing the vocals.

I don't know how much of a Petty fan I'd be anymore if it weren't for the concert I went to in 9/99, or if I hadn't heard Unchained. I'd have to mostly agree with the sentiments about that album, as it sounded a little more together than the previous American Recording had (likely thanks to the HBs), even if I thought # 1 was better song-for-song. The concert I attended was fun, as I couldn't really remember any of his songs aside from Wildflowers stuff, but I found myself singing everything like I'd just listened to them all. And his version of 'Gloria' smokes the livin' fark out of Van Morrison. That was worth the price of admission, even if the opening act was a damned gospel troupe.

Hey Jaguar..

Who opened?

He's coming here to ABQ next month, and I'm damn sure going.
