As previously reported, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers postponed Tuesday’s show at the Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls after guitarist Mike Campbell fainted onstage a few days earlier. Drive-By Truckers was slated to open the Cuyahoga Falls show and, after Petty’s cancellation, added a surprise gig at Cleveland’s Beachland Ballroom and Tavern. Old 97’s performed in the venue’s Ballroom earlier and, during their show, word quickly spread about the Truckers late-gig in the venue’s 150-person Tavern room.
