Tom Petty shares 1997 Fillmore performance of I Won’t Back Down

Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers are sharing audio of a stripped-down performance of “I Won’t Back Down” from the forthcoming release of “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.

“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.
