In the span of just a few days, Patti Smith performed with three members of Tom Petty's Heartbreakers and Bruce Springsteen. The appearance with the Heartbreakers came during an Autism awareness and fund raising event on Saturday (4/21) in Austin, Texas. Her performance of Because The Night with them marked the first time Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench and Stever Ferrone had taken the stage together since Petty died last October. Stephen Stills would also join the Heartbreakers during that set on a version of I Won't Back Down. At the Tribeca Film Festival's night at the Beacon Theatre in New York, Smith welcomed Because The Night's writer to join her on stage.
