Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers Deliver The Hits At Bonnaroo


Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers brought Bonnaroo to a close last night with a 20-song performance that was heavy on the hits. While in the past, the fact that Petty and his band played a set that focused on his most beloved songs wouldn't be news, but on his current tour he's been eschewing the hits in favor of deeper cuts.

Last night's performances of "Free Fallin'," "Don't Come Around Here No More," "Yer So Bad" and "Learning To Fly" were only the fourth versions of each during the 15 shows Petty And The Heartbreakers have played so far this tour. Other hits performed last night included "I Won't Back Down," "Here Comes My Girl," "Mary Jane's Last Dance," "Listen To Her Heart," "Refugee" and "American Girl."

Though the focus was on the hits, the group also did offer a few rarities including "Rebels," "Good Enough" and a cover of "Friend Of The Devil" by the Grateful Dead. As with every show this tour, "So You Want To Be A Rock 'n' Roll Star" kicked off the evening.

Here's the setlist from last night's Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' set at Bonnaroo:
