While the shock of Tom Petty’s untimely death still ripples through the music community, fans are reflecting on what nobody knew would be his final concert. It’s hard to believe that only a week before the legendary rock icon passed away, he was on stage finishing his 40th Anniversary Tour with the Heartbreakers.
The show took place at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, where Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers gave fans a show full of the same energy that they have performed with hundreds of times before. As they wrapped up the encore, Petty yelled to the crowd, “Thank you so much! God bless ya. Goodnight!”
