Arts Commons Presents: Tom Petty - Damn the Torpedoes

Feb 20–Jan 21

7:30 pm–11:45 pm

Arts Commons, Jack Singer Concert Hall

Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live has become the ultimate destination for music lovers wanting to hear the greatest albums performed live without all the gimmickry and cheesy impersonations. Relying only on the music, using what Martin refers to as 'the world's best musicians', Classic Albums Live has defined itself as a mainstay in Performing Arts Centres across North America.

Backed into a corner by a bad deal with a big record label, Petty actually threatened to shelve his third album with the Heartbreakers. Lucky for us, the label settled and Damn the Torpedoes was released in 1979, eventually selling triple-platinum. Rolling Stone declared it the Tom Petty album “we’ve all been waiting for”. The album sat at number two on the Billboard albums chart for seven weeks, cementing it as one of the great records of the album rock era.

Join Arts Commons for an evening of classic music appreciation where the first act is a faithful reproduction of the original album, and the second act is a ‘best hits’ concert – so get ready to rock!
