Practically Petty: Canada's Premier Tribute Band to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live!

Saturday December 10th, back by popular demand, the Linsmore Tavern is excited to welcome back Practically Petty: Canada's Tom Petty Tribute Band, an authentic tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Practically Petty has played some fantastic shows over the years at the Linsmore Tavern and it has been nearly two years since they have graced the Linsmore Tavern's stage! Seen across Canada, Practically Petty will take the stage at the Linsmore, recreating a live Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers performance. You will recognize the music instantly, as soon as Gerry Parsons (TP) plays the first note on his guitar. To add to the authenticity and vibe of the show, you will hear the sounds of the legendary band coming from the legendary musical instruments known to create the Heartbreakers sound. Those who have seen the show, love it. Those who love TP&H, this is the tribute show to see!!!

As soon as you hear ONE note from Practically Petty, you know these guys are serious about being an authentic tribute to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. From the sounds of the guitars, the likeness of Gerry to Tom, the outfits, and the overall GROOVE. To recreate a live Petty concert, there are three key ingredients: mojo, groove, and sound. We explore songs from their 1976 debut, all the way to 2014's "Hypnotic Eye," with some Traveling Wilburys along the way.

Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door!  You can purchase the tickets at the Linsmore Tavern or right here: BUY TICKETS!!
