The Black Jacket Symphony, known for recreating classic albums in their entirety by a group of handpicked musicians specifically selected for each album, are back in action at The Paramount with Tom Petty’s “Damn the Torpedoes.” With songs like “Don’t Do Me Like That,” “Even the Losers,” “Refugees,” and “Here Comes My Girl,” “Damn the Torpedoes” is the peak of Tom Petty’s songwriting with The Heartbreakers.

The performance is separated into two sets. The first set features the album being recreated as a true symphonic piece. The second set features a selection of Tom Petty’s “greatest hits.” Both feature the high level of musicianship you’ve come to expect from Black Jacket Symphony productions accompanied by all the bells and whistles of a major rock and roll show.
