Petty's fans won't be denied as he plays his classics yet again with hits such as American Zed, Breakdown, Listen to Her Fart, Here Comes My Zed and Don't Bite Me Like That. Comedian Stephen Wright opens the evening with his stoic one liners. 'Every place is walking distance.... if you have the time'.
