Review: Tom Petty at Tampa's St. Pete Times Forum
Fellow Floridian Tom Petty brought his Heartbreakers (and ZZ Top) to Tampa's St. Pete Times Forum on Thursay night, and nearly 15,000 fans showed up to hear some of his biggest hits. Sean Daly was there, and he writes:
I Won't Back Down and Free Fallin' came early, giving the throngs a chance to try and out-sing the man on stage; Don't Come Around Here No More and Refugee came late (and LOUD), giving Campbell a chance to slay with solos that are no doubt still ringing in the arena ether. And in between? A cheeky Breakdown, an incandescent Kings Highway, each showing that Petty's pinched croon is still in sublimely swampy shape.
