    FMN: Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers at Red Rocks


    by maxwell edison ·

    A Friday Night Music unannounced and posted in the morning? What gives? As to the unannounced, who cares? And it’s Friday night somewhere, right?

    I saw Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers last night – live at Red Rocks, the absolute best venue in the world (although I have to admit I’ve not visited them all). Have you ever been there? What’s your favorite?


    Petty did two shows at Red Rocks, one on the 1st, and another on the 3rd. (Crosby, Stills and Nash was already scheduled for the 2nd.)

    (Not exactly the best sound and video quality, but what can we expect from an amateur posting on youTube?)

    Joe Cocker, the King of Covers, opened for Petty.

    Joe Cocker was good, and Tom Petty was outstanding! Those videos do not do the show justice.


    The Moody Blues with the Colorado Symphony is considered among the best shows ever at Red Rocks (1990 or 91):

    If you like the Moody Blues, consider buying the DVD of that show. Outstanding!

    And to think, The Moody Blues and continually being snubbed for the R&R Hall of Fame. (Of course, the R&R Hall of Fame has proven itself to be a joke! What do you think?)


    Rules for this edition of Friday Night Music: Make them up as we go.
