In honor of what would have been Tom Petty’s 68th birthday today, here is the last show that Tom and the Heartbreakers ever played on his birthday: October 20, 2006. This is one of the last shows of the long 2006 tour that doubled as a 30th anniversary celebration and a promotion of Tom’s solo album ‘Highway Companion.’ To celebrate their anniversary, the band doesn’t really dig deep into their catalogue and instead covers songs in honor of their influences (The Yardbirds’ version of “I’m a Man” and Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well”). To promote ‘Highway Companion,’ the band does “Saving Grace” early on in the show as well as a more electric version of “Down South.”
I remember back in the day on the official TPHB message board that fans were planning when and how they were going to sing happy birthday to Tom at this show; you can hear the fan-led effort at the end of “Oh Well.” Luckily, Stevie Nicks performed alongside the band at this show and led an official birthday sing-along effort – complete with cake from a Mad Hatter – before singing “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” “I Need to Know,” and “Insider” with the band.
Long Live TP.
