When it’s 110 degrees Fahrenheit outside, it’s best to make your way indoors to stay cool. That’s what thousands of people did Friday night as they shuffled their way inside the now 11 month old Golden 1 Center located in downtown Sacramento to witness Tom Petty and The Shelters perform.

When The Shelters hit the stage, it was clear there would be no cooling down any time soon — these guys were fire throughout their entire set. Opening with the foot stomping track “Birdwatching,” you could instantly feel the rock and roll swagger resonate with the crowd. After playing every song from their self titled debut album, it was evident by the sweat pouring out their bodies that they had given us their all.

After a brief intermission, the excitement built tremendously as the crowd awaited the one and only Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

When they finally took the stage, Tom must have felt it too as he proudly exclaimed “I feel a little mojo building up in here!!!” Without wasting any time he jumped right into the first track off of the first album they ever did called “Rockin’ Around (With You).” Growing up listening to these guys, I could easily tell they still have it, every guitar chord was perfect, Tom’s vocals were on point and by the end of the night the only thing to be unhappy about was that it was over and we had to go home.
