This concert looks just beautiful in HD, which is how it's being shown now. It also sounds pretty darn good, too, thanks to the terrific musicians in Tom Petty's band. Mike Campbell on lead guitar and Benmont Tench on keyboards were particularly good, I thought. Petty has never had that good a voice but yet he's interesting to hear and he comes across as a real likable guy. All of the group's members, which also include bassist Ron Blair and guitar-harmonic-harmony vocals Scott Thurston and drummer Steve Ferrone all look like they're having a good time. I suspect they usually do when they're playing.
Everybody has their favorites songs of each artist and group and, at least in this concert, mine was "Melinda," which featured fantastic piano by Tench and an interesting guitar sound from Campbell. You can't go wrong either with rock "oldies" like "Baby, Please Don't Go" and "Born In Chicago," "Red Rooster" and "I Got A Woman." There is a good mix of fast and slow, rock and blues and ballads.....all adding up to an entertaining show.
