    A Refugee and an Eagle: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers/Joe Walsh Concert Review

    I saw Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers and Joe Walsh at US Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio on June 12, 2017.
    Two more I can mark off my list.
    Both were fun.
    Both Joe and Tom were quite appreciative of the crowd.
    Both their bands are very good, especially Tom’s.
    I’m glad I finally saw both.
    Next show is June 27, when I see Journey and Asia.
    Stay tuned.

    P.S. Below are some pics I took, as well as the setlists.
    However, before I show you those, I also want to say that I found out before I went to this show that one of my favorite people in the world passed away.
    Mr. Norman J. Beebe.
    For those that knew him, they know what I know, and that is that he was a Saint.
    He always had time for people, would always listen, was very smart, had great stories, and was a mentor to many. Including myself.
    I still have a lot to learn and a lot to do in this life, but if I could just be even a tenth as great of a person as he was, then that would be a great thing.
    Rest In Peace Norm!
    You earned it.
    My condolences to all of his family, friends, and everyone that loved him.
    Love ya Norm!
