Iconic rockers Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers kicked off their 40th Anniversary Tour on Thursday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City. The band’s first full performance since 2014 featured a mix of material from throughout their career starting with a bust out from the Heartbreakers’ debut album.
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers opened with the first song off their 1976 self-titled debut, “Rockin’ Around (With You).” Penned by Petty and Mike Campbell, the tune was last played live by the Heartbreakers in 1983 according to setlist.fm. Next up were a pair of big hits in “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” and “You Don’t Know How It Feels.” Petty and his band then played “Forgotten Man” from their most recent LP, Hypnotic Eye.
Last night’s 19-song main set rolled on with fan-favorites “You Got Lucky,” “I Won’t Back Down” and “Free’ Fallin'” ahead of Hypnotic Eye’s “American Dream Plan B.” Petty used “Don’t Come Around Here No More” to introduce the band and backing vocalists. “Wildflowers,” “Time To Move On,” “Yer So Band” and “Runnin’ Down A Dream” were among the hits loaded into the backend of last night’s set. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers ended the evening with an encore of “You Wreck Me” and “American Girl.” Joe Walsh kicked off the festivities as he will most dates on the extensive tour.
