TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS OPEN TOUR
AT EVANSVILLE, IN'S FORD CENTER
Tom Petty and The
Heartbreakers kicked off a six-show residency at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles
last night with a mix of deep cuts, hits and select covers. What's most interesting about
the setlist from the Fonda Residency opening show is that it is nearly identical to the
one they played last month at the first show of their Beacon Theatre Residency. It turns
out, the only difference was that at the Beacon Petty and his band played three songs in
the evening's encore while last night they only played two.
So, will the setlists for the next four shows align with the setlists from the final four
shows of the Beacon Residency? Well, since the Fonda Residency is six shows and the Beacon
Residency was only five, we do know there will be at least one show that's different.
Last night's show opened the way all shows on this tour have opened - with a cover of The
Byrds' "So You Want To Be A Rock And Roll Star." Other covers included Paul Revere & The
Raiders’ "(I’m Not Your) Stepping Stone" and "Willin'" by Little Feat. The opening night
of the run also saw performances of rarities "Melinda," "Fooled Again (I Don’t Like It),"
"Cabin Down Below," "Billy The Kid," "To Find A Friend" and "Angel Dream." As they have
each night this tour, The Heartbreakers also worked in a version of "Tweeter And The
Monkey Man" from Petty's time with The Traveling Wilburys. "I Won't Back Down," "Refugee,"
"Runnin' Down A Dream," "You Wreck Me" and "American Girl" were the hits played at night
one of the residency.
