tom petty in concert

in 2006, i went to a tom petty concert. i went because i like concerts and i liked the song Free Falling. it was an awesome concert. post concert, tim bought a 30th anniversary dvd set called Runnin' Down a Dream: a four hour documentary, a live concert dvd, and a cd. if you know a Petty fan...or even just a music fan - this is a fantastic gift. i've watched this 4 hour documentary maybe 3 or 4 times because it is so good. and if you don't know anything about Tom Petty, you will wish he was your bestfriend after watching this.

so what's funny is that i've seen Tom and the Heartbreakers in concert before but it was before i really appreciated them. so to see them again last night in concert at GM Place, it was like watching old friends walking out on stage. cheesy - i know. but that's how much i love them. i was thinking things like, "oh benmont, why are you wearing that hat?" and "mike - you're dressed just like tom!" yes, we're on a first name basis. in my mind. maybe this is too much information into my mind but...now you understand how pumped i was to go to this concert. and it was awesome. check out this much better review: http://www.theprovince.com/news/3129198/story.html?tab=PHOT
