NOTE: In 1978 Petty and the Heartbreakers were riding a huge wave of success brought on by their first two albums and were about to blow up the next year after the release of "Damn The Torpedoes". The band celebrated the end of 1978 and the beginning of 1979 with a three-show New Year’s run that culminated on the 31st at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in Santa Monica, CA.
Just one day earlier the Heartbreakers were the second-to-last band to headline the famous Winterland in San Francisco before the Grateful Dead closed out the historic venue on New Year’s Eve.
Petty’s performance in Santa Monica, which is real close to the group’s adopted hometown of Los Angeles, was stuffed with the best songs off the Heartbreakers’ first two albums and provides an incredible snapshot of just where the group was at that moment in time.
