Cracked Actor Plays Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
Cracked Actor will pay tribute to the late Tom Petty, and his de-facto band The Heartbreakers. This two-hour showcase will span the almost 40-year career of a master of concise, melodic songwriting, and his effortlessly accomplished ensemble – from the band’s self-titled 1976 debut Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, right up until 2014’s Hypnotic Eye. Cracked Actor, formed one day after David Bowie’s untimely death, initially paid tribute to the Starman with a series of shows that celebrated his myriad musical Ch-ch-ch-changes. The band has since expanded their tribute repertoire to include Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground, Iggy Pop and The Stooges, Marc Bolan and T-Rex, to name just a few, and now Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.
