The music world lost one of its defining voices on Monday (October 2) when Tom Petty passed away at the age of 66.  With a career that spanned more than 40 years, Petty took the torch of 3-chord rock-n-roll, added his own bluesy elements, and helped the format evolve.  Even as he was considered a traditional rock act, his influence on grunge was hard to ignore.

Over the years, Petty played Minnesota numerous times.  His most-recent concert wasn't all that long ago;  Tom played the Xcel Energy Center in June - during his 40th Anniversary Tour.

A quick look at the set list that night provides some insight into what made Tom Petty a fan favorite.  While he could be excused with simply doing a "hits" show, the set list from June's St. Paul show demonstrates that he was still shaking things up with some deeper cuts and newer songs.

Below is a video of that show. Enjoy.
