Won't Back Down: Tom Petty Tribute (at the Paradise)

  • Paradise Center for the Arts 321 Central Avenue North Faribault, MN, 55021 United States (map)

Friends of Hot Spot, Ray Coudret and Fred the Bear, are presenting Won’t Back Down, An Evening of Music by Tom Petty at the Paradise Center for the Arts in Faribault.

Aside from the fact that we get to spend a night playing some of the best rock & roll music ever written, we’re doing this in conjunction with Rice County Habitat for Humanity, who will receive a full 35% of the evening’s proceeds. Just as Tom himself would have wanted, we’re rockin’ for a great cause.

You guys all know about Habitat for Humanity. Since 1976, this organization has helped families in need of shelter by working with them to build houses and advocating for affordable housing. The Rice County Chapter was chartered in 1991 and built their first home in 1993. In just the last three years alone, they have built eight homes in the Northfield/Faribault area. We are thrilled to help support their amazing and vital work.

You can help them too, and all you have to do is come enjoy a fantastic evening of music. Won’t Back Down, An Evening of Tom Petty Music featuring Fred the Bear and those special guests will be on Friday, November 15. Doors open at 7, and the show will start at 7:30.

This is going to be a great night. Tickets are $16 for Paradise members, $21 for non-members and $12 for students. They’re available right now, so you should go get yours while you can. For more information visit

Thanks for your support. We’ll see you November 15!
