Show Review: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers/My Morning Jacket
Show Review: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers/My Morning Jacket

I have to preface this with a fairly unprofessional note. I've had the pleasure of photographing many groups that I truly admire and even bands that have sold millions of records, but I've never really had the opportunity to shoot a true "rock star" - until now. I had the distict honor of capturing a grand rock concert when Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers rolled through the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA on August 21st as part of the Mojo Tour. I had grown up listening to Petty's music, thanks to my mother, but have only recently grown to really appreciate his music. I am now a full-fledged fan and couldn't wait to see him live.

thanks so much for covering this. Tom Petty is one of my favorite musicians, and I really wish I could have caught this show. Haven't seen him live yet, and this makes we want to see him even more.
cool shots too.

This was a great read. I saw Tom Petty the two nights he was in Philadelphia. It really was a dream come true getting to see the rock 'n' roll icon that I was raised on.

I really enjoyed getting to see this genre of music on AbsolutePunk. It's never too late to get into some great classic rock.

I guess I was the only one let down by Petty's performance on the recent tour. He just seemed bored to me (at least until the 2nd half, which was a marked improvement on the beginning).

MMJ, on the other hand, blew me away.
