hey have scored hits in five different decades such as “American Girl,” “Refugee,” “The Waiting,” “I Won’t Back Down,” “Free Fallin’,” “Mary Jane’s Last Dance,” and “You Don’t Know How It Feels.” And they have sold tens of millions of records along the way. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during their first year of eligibility and have garnered accolades and awards too many to mention. Through it all their uncompromising integrity has never wavered while their concert tours have become things of legend.

Tom Petty has said the Heartbreakers are first a live band. Critics have said they are one of the few great live rock 'n roll bands still playing today.
