Arts Commons Presents:

Classic Albums Live – Tom Petty’s Damn the Torpedoes


CALGARY – Join Arts Commons Presents as Classic Albums Live performs one of the most celebrated concept albums of all time Tom Petty – Damn the Torpedoes on February 20, 2020 in the Jack Singer Concert Hall – note for note, cut for cut. 

Tom Petty’s triple-platinum album Damn the Torpedoes nearly didn’t see the light of day due to a dispute with recording label MCA.  Thankfully Petty won the day, and Damn the Torpedoes was released in 1979.  Rolling Stone declared it the Tom Petty album “we’ve all been waiting for” and to this day remains one of the most iconic and beloved classic rock albums of all time. 

Classic Albums Live has become the ultimate destination for music lovers wanting to hear the greatest albums performed live without all the gimmickry and cheesy impersonations. Relying only on the music, using what Martin refers to as 'the world's best musicians', Classic Albums Live has defined itself as a mainstay in Performing Arts Centres across North America. 

Join Arts Commons for an evening of classic music appreciation where the first act is a faithful reproduction of the original album, and the second act is a ‘best hits’ concert – so get ready to rock!
