Petty found time to meet with Laury Myhre, who is battling terminal cancer.

Myhre is in hospice care at Presbyterian Homes in Roseville. The care center posted Myhre's request on a Tom Petty Fan Club Facebook page and it went viral. The center also helped Myhre get tickets for the show.

The Xcel Energy Center worked with the tour to try and make the meeting happen.

It did.

Not only that, but Petty dedicated the song "Walls" to Myhre by name, saying he was playing it for Laury who was there and hadn't been feeling well. 

Myhre said Petty and the rest of his band could not have been nicer during the meeting.
