Tom Petty streams Fillmore House Band short film

Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers are streaming “The Fillmore House Band”, a short film documenting the group’s residency at the San Francisco, CA venue as heard on the forthcoming package, “Live At The Fillmore 1997.”

Right from the start, the footage sets the vibe of the live series as fans can be seen arriving at the club, with some discovering for the first time that the band will be performing different set lists during each night of the 20-show run, with more details and video snippets of several songs featured along the away.

Due November 25, “Live At The Fillmore 1997” 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.
