Tom Petty was born and raised in Gainesville, Florida, which is also home to the Florida Gators. After Tom passed away earlier this week, the Florida crowd wanted to pay their respect.
The entire crowd sang “I won’t back down” and it’s pretty much the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. Makes it really hit you, and it looks like we just witnessed the birth of a new tradition.
