Tom Petty Owns the What Stage

Suddenly, Tom Petty is the coolest rocker on earth. Not sure when exactly that happened, but no one could have stood as tall upon Bonnaroo’s main stage last night. Playing a barrage of his massive radio hits — “Refugee,” “Mary Jane’s Last Dance,” “Don’t Come Around Here No More,” and the epic “Freefallin'” — Petty bathed in the crowd’s warm responses for every moment of his two-plus-hours onstage. Even better: an impromptu duet with Stevie Nicks on “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.” Spin climbed the rafters and got these amazing shots of the stellar headline set.
