DAYTON, OH (October 16, 2013) – On Thursday, November 14, at 8 p.m. in the Mead Theatre of the Schuster Center, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will present The Music of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, the second concert in the DPAA 2013-2014 Signature Season’s Rockin’ Orchestra Series.
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are still touring and recording, engaging in combat with their various record labels, singing about the woes and shortcomings of the music industry in general and today’s radio stations in particular, and in the process selling more than 80 million records worldwide. Since 1976, no artist has defined “cool” better than Tom Petty, and no band has created a more magical sound together than the spine-chilling perfection that is the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers song anthology, spanning four decades and touching the lives of millions of Americans many times over.

In The Music of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Full Moon Fever—America’s premier Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers tribute band—brings to life an energetic and ultra-realistic performance of the legendary rock band. As the most authentic and professional Tom Petty tribute band on tour today, Full Moon Fever features an amazing recreation of an actual live Petty concert. You’ll experience the classic sounds of the Rickenbacker guitar, those pitch-perfect harmonies and the straightforward rock and undeniable raw energy that have come to define the live show of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers.

This dynamic tribute band truly delivers on their goal of taking you to that same special place. From classics such as American Girl, Refugee and Breakdown to fan favorites such as Mary Jane’s Last Dance, I Won’t Back Down and Free Fallin', Full Moon Fever captures these songs with remarkable poignancy and turns them into an unforgettable live experience!

Tickets for The Music of Tom Petty & The Heartbreaks with Full Moon Fever range from $27 to $79 and are available at Ticket Center Stage (937) 228-3630 and at Senior, teacher and student discounts are available at box office.


About the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance

The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance was formed in July 2012 as the result of a groundbreaking and innovative merger between the Dayton Ballet, the Dayton Opera, and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. Together, they are the largest performing arts organization in the community, offering a tremendous variety of performance and education programs and setting a new standard for artistic excellence.  Dayton Performing Arts Alliance performances are made possible in part by Montgomery County and Culture Works, the single largest source of community funds for the arts and culture in the Miami Valley. The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance also receives partial funding from the Ohio Arts Council, a state agency created to foster and encourage the development of the arts and to preserve Ohio's cultural heritage. Funding from the Ohio Arts Council is an investment of state tax dollars that promotes economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohio residents.  The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is proud to be one of five performing arts organizations in the country selected to receive a three-year "Music Alive" grant from New Music USA and the League of American Orchestras.
