The Heartbreakers tear through the classics and future hits
“After tearing through the Yardbirds’ I’m A Man and the Traveling Wilburys’Handle With Care, Petty took a moment to introduce the Heartbreakers – and, almost as an afterthought, “honorary member” Stevie Nicks. Cue crowd going bananas. The lace-clad Nicks romped onstage for a killer Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around, then took lead vocals for I Need to Know. (“You haven’t heard this song until you’ve heard Stevie do it”, Petty said, and he was right.) The show’s most thrilling moment, Don’t Come Around Here No More, with Nicks on backing vocals and tambourine, ended in a crashing, surreally strobelit jam with both Petty and Nicks thrashing like teenagers. In that moment, their silky blond hair flying, flash-frozen in the strobe’s white light, they seemed both timeless and immediate, classic and forever young.”
