Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers

This is one of the greatest sets from the infamous “Rockpalast” live shows ever. It took place at the “Docks” in Hamburg on April 23rd 1999, just a few steps away from the ” Indra” and the “Kaiserkeller”, where The Beatles first played in Hamburg. I’m pretty sure the band knew that, and they were inspired by the fact, that George and the other boys were there nearly 40 years ago. And it was like playing a small club again. I watched this so often, i’d almost think i was there. It has a wonderful setlist ! Great songs from “Wildflowers” and “Echo” and beautiful interpretations from J.J. Cale, S.Stills, Van Morrison & Booker T. Thanks to the “Rockpalast” for bringing great music to us over 40 years. One of the tour s finest shows, the entire set at this remarkable German concert was recorded for FM radio broadcast and simultaneous TV transmission,

When Tom Petty, Mike Campbell, Benmomt Tench and Co. were re-recorded by Rockpalast in 1999, they already had 10 joint studio albums under their belt and were superstars. The concert of the rockers in the Hamburger Docks showed the band in top form.

They used to play their own hits over two hours like “Learning To Fly”, “I Will not Back Down” and “Mary Jane’s Last Dance”, but also covers like “Green Onions” or “Gloria”. Petty made a lot of humorous announcements and solo-ed with Mike Campbell . A real treat.
