Tom Petty – a tribute
It was my great pleasure to attend and photograph the Tom Petty tribute concert at Dokkhuset on Saturday. Hosted by The South, and organised by promoters Dora 3, the evening brought together a broad range of local artists to play their takes on this recently departed artist. Artists including
Ida Jenshus, Alex Pettersen, Kathrine Rømmen, Jonas Skybakmoen, Øyvind Holm/Hogne Galåen, Morten Kristiansen, Siri Gjære, Rune Nilson and Jonas Ledang.
We even got to see Hannah Alridge join the party, after her flight was delayed by snow. Wouldn’t be a Tom Petty tribute without an “American Girl” now would it?!
Tom Petty meant a lot to me and was a mainstay in my musical upbringing. He was clearly loved by many others too, as demonstrated by the passion of the sell out crowd. It turned into a long evening, which meant a lot of photos! Here are some of my favourites; I hope they do the evening justice. Thank you to The South and Dora3 for giving us this send off.
