Speaking about the Los Angeles performance, The Wallflowers’ Jakob Dylan said, “Coming back to LA after such a long time, we wanted to do something special and unique for our fans. We decided to play what seems to be our fan’s favorite Wallflowers album, and for us, we wanted to play one of our favorite Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ records.”

Bringing Down the Horse was released in 1996, and won The Wallflowers Grammy awards for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group and Best Rock Song with the hit single, “One Headlight.”

The Wallflowers have a bevy of other tour dates across the US throughout the spring and summer. Check out the full schedule below, and get tickets here.

The Wallflowers’ latest album, Exit Wounds, arrived in 2021. Speaking to Kyle Meredith, Dylan highlighted the influence Tom Petty had on the album. Listen to their conversation below.

Meanwhile, The Wallflowers aren’t the only ones honoring Petty this year — last month, Dolly Parton shared her cover of “Southern Accents” from the upcoming compilation, Petty Country: A Country Music Celebration of Tom Petty.
