The Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers ‘Live at the Fillmore (1997)’ box set, taken from their legendary residency at the historic San Francisco venue, is available now in various formats on Warner Records. The 20-show run at the Fillmore was described by Petty as “the highpoint of our time together as a group.”
The ‘Live at the Fillmore” box set is the first live release in 13 years, with the band playing covers of their favorite influences as well as their hits. It features an acoustic version of “American Girl” with Petty singing along with his fans. The new album features more covers than originals, paying tribute to the artists and songs that shaped Petty as he was growing up. Highlights include Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door,” The Rolling Stones’ “Time is On My Side” and more from The Kinks, Everly Brothers, Bill Withers, The Byrds, Chuck Berry and Booker T. & the M.G.’s.
