Petty & The Heartbreakers’ excellent “Hypnotic Eye” album certainly proves that Simmons’ pronouncements that “Rock is dead” are pure bunk. (So does Robert Plant’s new “Lullaby and … The Ceaseless Roar” album, for that matter, along with countless bands in the past 20 years that the Kiss frontman has either forgotten or never heard.) Not only did new songs like “American Dream Plan B” and “Forgotten Man” fit in well with Petty’s classics, they made them sound more current. (“Into the Great Wide Open” has never sounded better than when sandwiched between those two new songs.)

What took the show to the next level, though, is the way the band set out to prove how “rock and roll will set you free.” They outlined several times how messed up American life is these days — most dramatically in the epic “Shadow People” — but Petty wants to offer the seeds of a solution as well. – [Newsday]

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakerstour, supporting the band’s received new album Hypnotic Eye, hit NYC Wednesday night (9/10) for a show at Madison Square Garden. Apart from a couple new songs, it was a veritable hitfest (and Petty’s got a lot of hits). The night was opened by another veteran hitmaker, Steve Winwood. Pics and setlist from MSG are in this post.

Petty and the Heartbreakers also hit NJ’s PNC Bank Center last night (9/11). More pics from MSG below…
