Tom Petty tribute band Oct. 7 at Franco Center
Tom Petty music performed by tribute band.
The Franco Center has announced that Runnin’ Down a Dream: The Tom Petty Tribute Band will return to its stage at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7, 2023. For over 40 years, Tom Petty created timeless classics with the Heartbreakers, Mudcrutch, The Traveling Wilburys, and released solo albums until his unfortunate death in 2017. “Our show faithfully replicates the style and feel of a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers concert, allowing the audience to experience the music of this extraordinary artist,” said Roger Howard, tribute band spokesperson.
This Maine-based band includes members Mike Boucher on lead vocals and guitar; Harry Coddington on lead guitar; Roger Howard on drums; Marty Mclellan on guitar and vocals; and Steve Brown on keyboard and vocals. When five veteran musicians from Maine, with local and national experience, play Petty’s music together, the feeling, meaning, and very soul of these songs are undeniable.
Roger said, “Our first performance last year at the Franco center in Lewiston was magical. Playing to the enthusiastic audience at the beautifully restored former church made it a really special night for us. We’ll be back for our encore performance on October 7th with some new songs and a whole assortment of Tom Petty’s classics!” These five musicians together on the Franco Center stage will perform the music of Tom Petty with authentic renditions from every stage of Petty’s career. Doors and a cash bar open an hour before showtime.
Doors and cash bar open at 6 p.m. Concert starts at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at www.francocenter.org/shows or by phone at 207-689-2000. Tickets can also be purchased in person at our box office between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
