Tom Petty estate details Live At The Fillmore 1997 release

Tom Petty’s estate is sharing details of the forthcoming release of a new Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers package, “Live at the Fillmore 1997.”

Due November 25, the project captures the band during the last six nights of a 20-show residency at the legendary Fillmore in San Francisco, CA in the period following their 1996 soundtrack record, “Songs and Music from ‘She's The One’".

The Fillmore album features more covers than originals, paying tribute to the artists and songs that shaped Petty’s love of music as he was growing up; highlights include versions of tracks first recorded by Bob Dylan, J.J. Cale, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Everly Brothers, Bill Withers, Chuck Berry, and more, and guest appearances by The Byrds’ front man Roger McGuinn and blues legend John Lee Hooker.

The shows at the Fillmore ended up being some of the most joyful, honest, inspirational and prolific experiences of the band’s career, creating a unique bond between the group and their fans.

“We all feel this might be the highpoint of our time together as a group,” Petty told the crowd at the final show. “It’s going to be hard to get us off this stage tonight.”

“Live at the Fillmore 1997” will be available in multiple configurations, including 2CD, 3LP, 4CD, 6 LP, digitally, and a 6LP Uber Deluxe Edition available exclusively on the Tom Petty webstore.

The project is being previewed with a video for the Fillmore live version of “Listen To Her Heart”, a song that originally appeared on the band’s second album, 1978’s “You're Gonna Get It!”

Petty passed away in 2017 at the age of 66 in a Santa Monica, CA hospital after being found unconscious and in cardiac arrest at his Malibu home.
