For the second night in a row last night, Tom Petty And the Heartbreakers gave the audience at Beacon Theatre what they’d been waiting for since the tour was announced last winter: well-oiled musicianship and an American Girl encore. The audience sang along, relieved that all that three-beer karaoke was finally paying off.
The sold-out show was part of the group’s summer tour through North America and a five-night run at the Beacon. The band plans to release a new album in 2014. Photos by Adela Loconte.
