Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played their first show of 2015 on December 19th – a surprise set during Mike Campbell and Jonathan Wilson’s fourth annual Merry Minstrel Musical Circus: A Holiday Gathering & Jamathon at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. Joining Petty onstage was none other than longtime Petty collaborator Jeff Lynne.

Since regular Heartbreakers drummer Steve Ferrone was unavailable, Dirty Knobs drummer Matt Laug filled his role for tunes like “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” and classic rock covers like “Little Red Rooster” and “I’m A Man.” 

The night also featured the rest of Campbell’s side band Dirty Knobs, Dawes, Jackson Browne, Duane Betts, and members of My Morning Jacket.

Jeff Lynne had recently powered up ELO after a much too long hiatus (since re-named Jeff Lynne’s ELO) and had released Alone in the Universe in November 2015.

This was the 4th annual Merry Minstrel Musical Circus at the Troubadour in Hollywood, CA. This show is put on by the Tazzy Fund (tazzyfund.com)& Rock the Dogs (Mike & Marcie Campbell) and Jonathon Wilson, on behalf of musical education within the LA Unified School District.SHOW LESS
