"Damn the Torpedos is the peak of Tom Petty's songwriting with the Heartbreakers. Slick, big, and immutably classic, the album is a front-to-back feat of production and songwriting." Pitchfork
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers' 1979 album Damn the Torpedoes defined their musical style and took them into the mainstream, hitting number two on the U.S. charts. Classic Albums Live performs Damn the Torpedoes with skilled vocalists and musicians who honor the work with no gimmicks, no makeup, and no other illusions employed by tribute bands. Note for note, cut for cut, the attention to detail is staggering; every sound from the album is masterfully duplicated live on stage. Don't miss hit singles from the album like "Refugee," "Don't Do Me Like That," and "Here Comes My Girl," followed by a second set of Tom Petty's greatest hits.
Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live takes the greatest albums and recreates them live on stage note for note, cut for cut, using the best musicians. "Think of it as a recital," says Martin, "these albums are historic and stand the test of time." Forgoing costumes and impersonations, Classic Albums Live has found success in concentrating solely on the music. "We don't dress up or wear any sort of costume. We just stand there and play. All of our energy is put into the music. We want the performance to sound exactly like the album," says Martin.
With 100+ shows a year across North America, Classic Albums Live has seen massive success in performing arts centres and theatres. Fans in Texas, Las Vegas, Florida, New York and central and east coast Canada have all continued to support the series and make it a sustaining, successful show. "We grew while others withdrew," says Martin, commenting on the decline of concert ticket sales, "We created something that endures and connects. These albums are sacred to people. We deliver exactly what we promote note for note, cut for cut' accuracy."

Music: Rock / Pop Theater & Performance: Variety Theater & Performance Music Northern Delaware
