A Look Back At Tom Petty At The Palace In 2010
The Palace Of Auburn Hills is set to close after Bob Seger plays there one last time on September 23rd. As the venue closes, I will look back at some of the shows I have had the chance to see at the arena. Next up Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers in 2010.
This was a show I was excited to see as I have never seen them live. This show was a a part of the "Mojo" tour that was back in 2010.
One of the highlights for this show was that my wife and I received seat upgrades, due to the show not selling. We were moved from the upper to lower level.
It made a difference as we had a great view of the stage. Opening the show was the Drive By Truckers. I was aware of them but didn't know too much about them or their music. I found their set to be enjoyable and would see them again if they came around. They were one of those openers that was a great fit for the band they were opening for.
Tom and the band put on a great show featuring many of their classics throughout, along with songs from the album, "Mojo". They also broke out a great cover of the Fleetwood Mac classic, "Oh Well".
I liked how they opened the show with, "Listen To Her Heart" one of those under the radar songs from the band I have always enjoyed. (Check out the setlist for the show here.) The encore featured "Runnin' Down a Dream" and of course "American Girl".
One of the all time greats that I was glad to finally see live. I hope I can see them again before Tom calls it a day.
