Jade Presents and Sanctuary Events Center have teamed up to bring ‘I Won’t Back Down: A Tribute to the Late Tom Petty’ to downtown Fargo. The event will celebrate the music and legacy of the late artist through live renditions played by Fargo-Moorhead musicians.
Five local acts, along with some special guests, will perform selections from Petty’s songbook spanning his 40-year career. Although Petty was not able to make a Fargo stop on recent tours, the tribute show aims to bring together his many fans in the community in celebration of his life.
“I had the privilege of working with Tom Petty in 2003 on the ‘Lost Cities Tour’ when we produced shows in Bismarck, Duluth, Mankato, Cedar Rapids, Sioux Falls and Rapid City,” said Jade Nielsen, president and founder of Jade Presents. “As hard as I tried, I could not work in a Fargo show on that tour and unfortunately, I didn’t get another opportunity. This is our chance to celebrate the songs live with some of FM’s best artists.”.
