At a festival surrounded by modern day Alt Rock “It” bands, the most crowded any stage was all weekend was the main stage on Saturday night for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.  We were treated to a “Festival” set packed with some of his greatest hits, deeper cuts and covers.  It seemed like no one left The Woodlands before getting their chance to see and experience these legends.

This set is a great set for photographers as Petty brings a great energy to his set.  Lighting was at times great, but then would drastically change for a specific moment rendering shots underexposed unless you reacted quickly enough.
