I can write and write on how great the ABB were in Buffalo last night but it would be easier to sum it up with the following observation:
when I went to buy my instant live about 1/3 to 1/2 way through Tom Petty’s set, I saw at least 700 fans exiting the premises within about 5 mintues.
Nothing against Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers (Mike Campbell was superb), but never bring a band like the ABB to open a show for you. After seeing a band like the ABB push each other song after song and jam after jam leaving all of the fans mesmerized, TP playing a song the exact same way it appears on the 3 minute track doesn’t cut it.
Given that they had 90 minutes to play, the ABB made a wise move in playing 11/12 songs rather than trying to squeeze in as many as possible….like Petty did.
No One Left To Run With
Trouble No More
Woman Across the River
Hoochie Coochie Man
Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More
One Way Out
DTB 6:00pm to 6:47pm
ABB 7:15pm to about 9:00pm
TP 9:46pm to about 11:30pm
Anybody have a clue how long the ABB will play for, as “a special guest” of TP?
Should be a great show….hopefully some of the band will come out and jam with the Heartbreakers….
