Tom Petty streams part 2 of Fillmore House Band short film

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

Directed by Alison Tavel, the 11-minute short film – which follows part one – features previously-unreleased, never-before-seen footage from the Petty estate vaults, accompanied by interviews with The Heartbreakers filmed at the famed Clubhouse.

In addition to the performance footage, the film captures the excitement and camaraderie around the shows, giving fans yet another glimpse into the ambitious 20-night residency at the iconic San Francisco venue.

“The Fillmore, it’s an event. It’s a place in time,” says pianist Benmont Tench.

“You feel the history, you feel the ghosts, and you feel the magic that’s sort of happened,” adds guitarist Mike Campbell, “it’s sort of dripping on the walls.”

The 2022 release of 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, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Everly Brothers, Bill Withers, Chuck Berry, and more, and guest appearances by Roger McGuinn of The Byrds and blues legend John Lee Hooker.

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