For the first time since Tom Petty’s passing, members of The Heartbreakers performed together on stage.

The trio backed Beck for performances of “Guess I’m Doing Fine” and “Where It’s At”, joined Patti Smith for “Because the Night”, and played the Heartbreakers classic “I Won’t Back Down” with Stills.
