Photo Gallery: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Celebrate 40 Years at Air Canada Centre in Toronto

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers made a stop on their 40th anniversary tour at the Air Canada Center on July 15. The veteran rockers played to a sold-out crowd of over 19,000.

The band played mostly hits, but dropped in an occasional B-side or rare track. They kicked off their set by going way back to the first song off their very first album, Rockin’ Around (With You). Petty and the Heartbreakers took us on a ride through time which Petty described as “We’re going to pretend like this is a record spinning around up here playing our entire catalog and every now and then we are going to drop the needle.”

Petty took fans through a history of his solo and the Heartbreakers catalog, including “Mary Jane’s Last Dance,” “You Don’t Know How it Feels,” softer hits like “Wildflowers” and “Crawling Back to You.”  They ended the evening with fan favorite, “American Girl.” Check out the photo gallery…
