The Black Jacket Symphony will return to the Mobile Saenger Theatre April 18 to perform Tom Petty's classic "Full Moon Fever" in its entirety and his greatest hits.

Remember putting on an album and listening from start to finish? Relive that moment with a live concert experience unlike any other as The Black Jacket Symphony recreates Tom Petty's iconic album, "Full Moon Fever" live in its entirety—note-for-note, sound-for-sound—plus a full set of Tom Petty's greatest hits.

"Full Moon Fever" is the debut solo studio album by Petty, released April 24, 1989, by MCA Records. It features contributions from members of his band the Heartbreakers, notably Mike Campbell, as well as Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison (who died before its release), and George Harrison, Petty's bandmates in the Traveling Wilburys. The record shows Petty exploring his musical roots with nods to his influences. The songwriting is mainly collaborations between Petty and Lynne, who was also a producer on the album. "Full Moon Fever" became a commercial and critical success, peaking at No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and being certified five times platinum in the United States and six times platinum in Canada.

Over the past 10 years, the Black Jacket Symphony has performed over 40 classic rock albums, bringing an incredible night of entertainment to over a million music lovers across the U.S. The group of hand-picked musicians changes based upon the album being performed—and no sonic detail is overlooked, with the musicians doing whatever it takes to reproduce the album. It's a full night of rock and roll magic—plus a visual experience unlike any other.
