  1. 2017 Tour Trail - memories, pics, songs played

    They are playing Safeco and that holds 45K for concerts. I have not been to SPAC in ages. It's a beautiful venue. I gotta get up there again one of these days.

    Forest Hills only holds about 12,500.

    I haven't been to the Forest Hills tennis stadium in Queens (NYC) for a concert yet. They remodeled it back in 2013 and I've heard it's a great place to see a show. Plus it's a quick train ride so we won't have to deal with parking.

    Watching a band live is the best way to appreciate the genius behind the sound. My wife is so excited. She really did love the Beacon show for her, this is the show she wants to see. So many songs that she knows. Our son is sleeping at a relative's house and we are heading over to the show very early tomorrow. Taking the train and grabbing an early dinner and a couple of adult beverages before heading in to see Wolf & TPATH. We're making it a nice little event.

    Spoke to my friend today for the first time since he went to the show. The TD Garden show was his first Petty show and he said it was amazing and he now has an even greater appreciation for Mike Campbell. It's funny how people who don't know the true inner-workings of the band may not understand just how good the entire band is but especially MC. I have always said his humility has probably made him one of the most underrated guitarists ever. Guy is amazing.

    My friend saw TPATH last night in Boston. It was his first time seeing them and he was really excited. Anyway, the night before the show, he went and saw a Grateful Dead tribute band called Bearly Dead at a small club. All of the sudden Mike Campbell walks out on stage and plays with the band. The crowd went crazy. He sent me a short video of it. Very cool thing to happen the night before his 1st TPATH show. Also, they added You Got Lucky back into the setlist last night.

    Hey all. Not one of the regular Farmers but absolutely love Petty. I joined the board back before the Beacon shows. But I have been a Petty fan since the beginning and first saw TPATH back in the 80's. I really enjoy the posts from everyone and it gets me so amped up for the show. I am going to the Forest Hills show in NYC next Wednesday with my wife. I have read the the comments about the setlist being basically the same each night. It's a common complaint that fans of many bands have. I am a big Stones fan and have seen them many times and they play mostly the same setlist every night. But they always throw in 2 or three songs that mix things up a bit. Those are the songs that Give me the biggest rush. Sure, I love all of the songs but the rarities are the ones that thrill me. I heard Jagger once say that when he plays those rarities, a thousand people freak out and the other 17,000 have blank stares. lol The reality is that most fans at the shows go for the greatest hits package. An example of that was the TPATH Beacon show. That was my wife's first Petty show. She loved the show but she would have preferred a greatest hits show. I, on the other hand, could not have been more thrilled. I've see the greatest hits many times. Now I am taking her to the show next week and she will get her hits setlist and walk out saying how amazing the show was. And of course it will be amazing... it's TPATH!!! But to me, the Beacon show was the amazing one. Anyway, I am just grateful to be able to see the band again and I will love every minute of it. Thanks again for all of the reviews and comments. You all got my blood pumping for the show.

    Hey all. Been a while since I popped on but it's also been a while since I've seen TP&THB. Is anybody going to either of the Forest Hills shows?

  14. "Hypnotic Eye" Presales?

    Hi all... It's been a while but TP & THB's are back and I am excited... and with Steve Winwood to boot!!! A quick question if I may... I am not a Highway Companion and if I spent money on it, my wife would kick my butt. Sure she's only 5' 2" but when it comes to things like that, I am not too ashamed to admit I fear her retribution. So does anyone know what the Hypnotic Eye Presales are? I am looking to go to the MSG show and the following on sale times are listed: Onsale to General Public Start: Sat, 05/31/14 10:00 AM EDT Tom Petty Legacy Member Presales Start: Tue, 05/27/14 10:00 AM EDT End: Wed, 05/28/14 10:00 PM EDT Tom Petty New Member Presales Start: Wed, 05/28/14 10:00 AM EDT End: Wed, 05/28/14 10:00 PM EDT "Hypnotic Eye" Presales Start: Thu, 05/29/14 10:00 AM EDT End: Fri, 05/30/14 10:00 PM EDT Venue Presale Start: Fri, 05/30/14 10:00 AM EDT End: Fri, 05/30/14 10:00 PM EDT Any information would be greatly appreciated. I hope you all get great tickets!!!
