Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

On the heels of a recent pair of theater residencies in L.A. and New York, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers eschewed tried-and-true set-list standbys like "Mary Jane's Last Dance" and "Free Falling'" in favor of deep cuts and covers from the farther reaches of its vast catalog. "Free Falling," along with other obligatory staples like "Learning to Fly," "Refugee" and "Running Down a Dream" were still highlighted throughout the show, taking their normal places in the running order to boot. But the band did match ‘em with unexpected album cuts ("Rebels," "Good Enough") and covers ("Baby, Please Don't Go," "Friend of the Devil"), and appearing far more engaged in the process.
