perhaps they're giving us a clue?

petty had a large arrow that went through a heart shaped stage on cue when 
the first song began.  obviously, people looking for something controversial 
thought the arrow was a phallic symbol. 

the question about the staging is something I asked this list about when 
the news of "the who" playing the show first broke. 

springsteen didn't have an elaborate stage. just pyro. 

since seeing "the who" is pretty much like seeing tom petty and the 
heartbreakers these days, with the exception that the who's music is more of an 
anthemic nature, their staging might be similar.
