Petty has never had that good a voice but yet he's interesting to hear and he comes across as a real likable guy. All of the group's members, which also include bassist Ron Blair and guitar-harmonic-harmony vocals Scott Thurston and drummer Steve Ferrone all look like they're having a good time. I suspect they usually do when they're playing.
Everybody has their favorites songs of each artist and group and, at least in this concert, mine was "Melinda," which featured fantastic piano by Tench and an interesting guitar sound from Campbell. You can't go wrong either with rock "oldies" like "Baby, Please Don't Go" and "Born In Chicago," "Red Rooster" and "I Got A Woman." There is a good mix of fast and slow, rock and blues and ballads.....all adding up to an entertaining show.
I saw part of this performance on TV in my living room with only a 4.0 setup, but I liked it enough to order the blu-ray.
Upon hearing the DTS-MA sound track now twice in our 7.1 setup, I found the recording mix a tad unbalanced. The rhythm guitar on the right when viewed from the audience is often not loud enough compared to all the other instruments/voices.
You can hear it best when comparing "I got a woman" to "13 days". The mix on "13 days" is much better.
Everything else is well recorded and I still enjoyed it. But it can get only 4 stars from me.
The concert is over 2 hours of great music , from "Crawling back to you" and "I won't back down" ,"Handle with care" "Love is a long road" to old time rock and roll classics ,such as "Baby please don't go" "Carol" to blues like "Born in Chcago" and "Red rooster". Video quality is also outstanding with some nice extra tracks as well. I think that even at 30 bucks it's well worth it to any Petty fan!
A great concert both musically, and visually.
Highly recommended !

This is an excellent disc. The picture and sound quality are superb. The performance is even better. I'm glad that discs don't wear out because I'd be buying another one by now.Published on January 5, 2012 by Roll Man
I can't sit through this concert. Tom is so fried out or just losing his mind. The grunting that passed for singing would have made ozzie feel bad for him. Read morePublished on July 3, 2011 by Luanne
It doesn't play anymore! All of a sudden I started getting an error message that said incompatable. I love this Bluray and am perplexed why it did this. Read morePublished on September 8, 2010 by Wolfie777
