it’s good to be king: tom petty in austin

May 13, 2012

Went down to Austin last weekend for the last US date of Tom Petty’s tour (though I’m hoping the rumors are true that a second US leg is coming this fall after the band gets back from Europe… fingers crossed!) They played the Frank Erwin Center, the basketball arena for the University of Texas. It wasn’t the best venue, as I always prefer outdoor shows, but it did the trick. And it was so great to be back in Austin again. I left last summer and have missed it pretty much everyday since (sorry Minnesota). While I am saving all the details of my Tom Petty tour stories for my memoir, I wanted to share some photos from the show, which was amazing, as usual. Tom and the boys never disappoint.

Me and my new most prized possession

In a complete music blogger fail I really don’t like taking many photos or videos during the actual show. I think it’s distracting and selfishly, I’d just so much rather watch it than document it. So sorry about that, but here’s 10 whole seconds of video I took, just to give you a tease :)
