Rock and Roll hall of famers Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers gave us some of the 20th century’s most memorable rock hits. For over a decade, Toronto-based band Full Moon Fever has brought these songs to crowds across North America. Now, they’re taking the show on the road for a new generation of audiences to discover.

“You don’t have to be a fan of Tom Petty to enjoy the show that Full Moon Fever puts on,” says Nola. “By the end of the first set I’d forgotten they were a Tom Petty tribute and felt like I was just getting to enjoy…a great band!”

Experience Tom Petty classics like American Girl and Free Fallin’ alongside diehard fan favorites like Southern Accents and Change of Heart, featuring the layered vocals and signature 12-string Rickenbacker textures of the original touring outfit.

Don’t back down from the chance to rediscover Tom Petty’s legendary songbook as you’ve never heard it before.

Opening for Full Moon Fever is THE MICHAEL WEBER SHOW, an explosive, rock group centered around 20 year old guitar phenom, Michael Weber.

Michael has played out professionally since he was 7 years old.  His love for music is evident in every note he produces.  He has performed hundreds of shows with his band, various local bands, and national acts, including the Counting Crows when he was 9 and 12 years old and regularly with garage rock legends, The Shadows of Knight.  He is also a student at Kent State University and owner and operator of Silver Swamp Recording Studio.  

In 2018, Weber won MTV's Amazingness television talent/variety show hosted by Rob Dyrdek.
