Damn the Torpedoes to Perform Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers All-Time Hits
Yonkers, NY – The recent death of Tom Petty has left a void for many heartbroken fans who enjoyed nothing more than attending one of his many concerts and hearing the legendary singer belt out classics like American Girl, Wildflowers, Free Fallin’, I Won’t Back Down, and Runnin’ Down a Dream. While that void may never be filled, the renowned Tom Petty Tribute Band, Damn the Torpedoes, will keep Petty’s spirit alive when they perform at Empire City Casino on Thursday, December 14th at 8 p.m.
