Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers certainly didn't disappoint with their half time show tonight.
It was visually interesting without being cheesy (I'll admit I really liked the traveling arrow into the heart at the beginning — how did they do that?) and really just allowed the band and their music to shine.
The set list was "American Girl," "I Won't Back Down," "Free Fallin'," and "Runnin' Down a Dream."
What did you guys think?
Tickets officially go on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m. for the band's July 12 show at Walnut Creek.
I'll admit I was really peeved when I logged in to the pre-sale Friday morning and found that for a $65 ticket (that's about $160 for two including fees) the closest seats I could get were in row EE in sections 5 or 8. (That's, essentially, on the lawn)
Perhaps tomorrow will bring me better Ticketmaster juju, but for someone like Tom Petty, long heralded as the anti-establishment rock star (watch the documentary Runnin' Down a Dream, I highly recommend it) the whole thing is a little disappointing.
