Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers Kick Off Hollywood Residency


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.
