Well, Tom Petty played the Super Bowl, and while he didn't rock as hard as Prince did (not even as hard as Prince's press conference), there were a few things that impressed me. First, the flying-V guitar laser show at the beginning. Pretty good. Second, he played mostly songs from his "solo" album, yet this was considered a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers show. A bit of Advancement. Third, did Mike Campbell, one of the all-time great guitarists, have his hair in dreadlocks? If so, that is one of the boldest statements of Advancement I've seen in a while.
