The Michigan Lottery Amphitheater July 12th
Classic Albums Live will recreate the magic of the album that defined Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ musical style and took him into the mainstream.
The band will recreate the iconic rock masterpiece, “Damn the Torpedoes,” cut for cut, note for note, using every instrument it took, exactly as you remember it – no wigs, no samples and no costumes. In addition, Classic Albums Live will perform other memorable Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers songs from that period.
“Damn the Torpedoes,” Tom Petty and the Heartbreaker’s third album, hit No.2 on the U.S. charts and spawned the top 10 single, “Don’t Do Me Like That.” The album has stood the test of time as one of the great American rock albums of its era
According to Craig Martin, producer of the Classic Albums Live series, which includes similar recreations of albums by The Beatles and Led Zeppelin, “There’s a real thirst to hear these albums produced start to finish. For many of us, this is the music we grew up with – the soundtrack of our lives.”
