Petty Criminals – Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Tribute

Petty Criminals bring you an evening of classic rock in the shape of an American icon – one of the greatest songwriters and bands of our time, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. The Criminals dig deep into the life, the music and the incredible influence of the man.

Over 2+ hours, you will experience Tom Petty’s legendary career through stories, authentic performances and a huge catalogue of his music spanning four decades. From deep cuts to greatest hits, you’ll journey through early songs like American Girl, Breakdown & Refugee, through the ‘80s and early ‘90s with classics like Freefallin’, Runnin’ Down A Dream, I Won’t Back Down & Learning To Fly, with highlights from the seminal album “Wildflowers” and later albums.

***** “Petty Criminals smashed the evening and rocked the audience with some pretty special covers of this great band. The attention to musical detail was superb, the musicianship first class but -oh!- those backing vocals and harmonies took the songs to another level. These guys picked up that the Heartbreakers didn’t just rock with the hardest but vocally harmonised with the best.  As a lifelong TPHB fan, I  recommend you hear and go see these guys for a brilliant night and soak up Tom Petty’s great songwriting legacy!” 

This event was originally scheduled for Saturday 5th June. Tickets for that date remain valid.
