Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ 30th Anniversary Concert, and “Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band” is Our Album of the Week, Sunday, April 26, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a light programming day today, but we feature two powerhouse performances!

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers 30th Anniversary

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

12:00 p.m.   Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers 30th Anniversary Concert: Live From The Stephen J. O’Connell Center, Gainesville, Florida, September 21, 2006  NEW!

Undoubtedly one of the most amazing live performances in Tom Petty & The Heartbreaker’s concert history. The band is joined on stage for several songs by Stevie Nicks. Musically, the band is on top of its game, and Mike Campbell’s guitar is blistering.

The set list is available under the Playlist tab on this blog (scroll to the bottom).

4:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band by The Beatles NEW!

This album changed everything. It was a first for many, many reasons. It was the music world’s first “concept” album, fully launching The Beatles into a new realm of psychedelic music. It was the first album to feature an expanded cover with the lyrics to the songs in print. 

Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band was The Beatles’ 8th studio album, released on May 26, 1967 in the UK, and June 2, 1967 in the U.S. It spent 27 weeks in the number one position on the UK charts, and 15 weeks at number one on Billboard. It received four Grammy Awards in 1968, including Album of the Year, the first rock album to receive this honor.

Thisi s a very good day for music here in The Mermaid Lounge, so tune us in.
