Rock: In concerts
By Lennox Samuels
The Milwaukee Sentinel — January 1, 1982
TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS, Alpine Valley Music Theater — Petty seemed a bit, ah, buzzed, but it took nothing from what truly was one of the year’s stellar performances. Petty was wired, the band was tight and the crowd was primed. The music? Great. Fine accounts of “American Girl,” “Here Comes My Girl,” “Thing About You,” “King’s Road” and many others.
