Watch Spoon Cover Tom Petty
Spoon shared a pair of Tom Petty covers captured during their performance for The Ally Coalition’s 7th Annual Talent Show filmed at the Catacomb in Austin, Texas on October 15, 2020. The rockers delivered the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers classic “Breakdown” as well as the Petty solo track “A Face In The Crowd.”
“Breakdown” appears on Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ 1976 self-titled debut. “A Face In The Crowd” is off of Petty’s 1990 debut solo album, Full Moon Fever. The Ally Coalition performance — which took place just after the anniversary of Tom Petty’s death and just before what would have been his 70th birthday — of “Breakdown” saw Spoon’s Britt Daniel on bass while “A Face In The Crowd” featured the frontman on acoustic guitar.
