The Heartbreakers have reunited to play their first show since Tom Petty’s death, where they were joined by a stellar revolving bill of vocalists including Beck, Stephen Stills and Patti Smith.
The band, consisting of Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench, and Steve Ferron, joined forces once more for the Light Up The Blues benefit concert for Autism Speaks at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.
The concert was organised by Stills, who joined the group to perform Petty’s ‘I Won’t Back Down’, before they later joined forces with songwriting icon Smith for a rendition of her own anthem ‘Because The Night’.
A previously announced duet with Beck then followed, with the group performing Petty’s ‘Guess I’m Doing Fine’ and ‘Where It’s At’.
Check out footage of all the performances below.
Although, it’s yet to be announced whether The Heartbreakers will continue to play shows in the wake of Petty’s death, it was recently announced that guitarist Mike Campbell will join Fleetwood Mac after the departure of Lindsay Buckingham.
He’ll be joined by Neil Finn, the founding vocalist of Crowded House.
“Fleetwood Mac has always been a creative evolution. We look forward to honoring that spirit on this upcoming tour.”
