Tributes to departed American icon Tom Petty have been pouring in since his death on Monday. Jeff Tweedy and company’s faithful rendition of the Hard Promises hit became a cathartic sing-along at the Music Factory. The world was still reeling from Petty’s death Monday following cardiac arrest at the age of 66.

Last night at the Irving Music Factory in Irving, TexasWilco showed their love with a faithful cover of Petty’s “The Waiting,” the lead single from 1981’s Hard Promises and Petty’s first ever No. 1 single on the U.S. Rock Charts. Nine more would follow: “You Got Lucky,” “Jammin’ Me,” “I Won’t Back Down,” “Runnin’ Down a Dream,” “Free Fallin’,” “Learning to Fly,” “Out in the Cold,” “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” and “You Don’t Know How It Feels.” (Incredibly, Petty never scored a Top 5 single on the regular U.S. Charts, with “Free Fallin’” reaching as high as No. 7 in 1989.)

On Monday, Wilco also posted this video of them playing Petty’s “Listen to Her Heart” way back in 1995.
