Putting up the thread for tonight's show. I watched about maybe a in hour and a half on Periscope then the video ended. Deacon wearing a jersey with Detroit on there. I don't know what it says on the back. Deacon said his family was there. I don't know if he's talking about his mother and siblings (I think Taylor is on the road with them) or his relatives. He was happy to be in his dad's hometown.

I haven't used periscope before, so had a look. I found an Eagles Detroit pt2 and an Eagles Detroit pt3, for a total of about 1hr50 minutes and watched it. The concert sounds great. Of course the sound quality isn't perfect being recorded on a phone. But the performances, both vocal and instrumental, sound great.

Pity there isn't more Tim though.

A few reviews from last night's concert. Deacon talking about his dad and dedicating PEF to his dad. So I was right. He did have relatives in the audience. Don dedicating Life in the Fast Lane to Glenn's old high school. I remembered Don saying something before Life In The Fast Lane, but I didn't know what he said.

Don did his talk about Deacon having done some small parties with his dad in front of 150 people or so. Then their first concert was 55,000 people. And how impressive this was.

(That wasn't before LITFL, but earlier on.)

All 'facts' dependent on my notably fallible memory.

Here's another review from last night's show. They even wrote what the guys said before and after each song. I didn't know Vince had said anything before a song.

It looks like he said that line before Life's Been Good, but I'm going to recheck the video.

Ok. I just checked the video. Don did say something about Glenn's alma mater before LITFL. It also had them give a false start to the song.

This is nice, from the first review Shun linked:

"The combined impact of Gill and Frey brought freshness to the concert that insured it was neither maudlin tribute nor cash-in nostalgia. It felt nothing less than authentic -- precise, as is Eaglesí trademark, and nothing but crowd-pleasing in its array of enduring hits."

ETA and from the Detroit Free Press:

"Thereís no replacing Frey, of course, and all involved seem wise enough to know that: Gill and Deacon Frey were tastefully integrated into the proceedings, coming off not as clunky stand-ins but as respectful conduits for songs indelibly etched in the collective memory."

Great that it was not a "maudlin tribute"? Why are so many people so afraid of showing/seeig a bit of emotion these days? :headscratch: I'm not bashing the band, I just don't understand some reviewers.

MaryCalifornia
10-28-2017, 03:39 PM
The first definitions I get for maudlin is: "self-pityingly or tearfully sentimental, often through drunkenness" and "drunk enough to be emotionally silly; weakly and effusively sentimental."

Sounds to me like this reviewer was trying to say that the on-stage tributes, talking about, photos and love showed to Glenn were joyful and celebratory in spirit rather than depressing or sad. It sounds to me like there was much emotion displayed.

chaim

I don't know what exactly the writer meant with the word. Your interpretation could be correct. Seemed to me that sentimentality would have been beneath the reviewer. Personally I don't think there should be any rules about how band members should remember their brother. If it's joyful, fine, if it's teary-eyed - equally fine. I dunno, it just irritates me when I feel that someone mentions sentimentality like it's a disease, but I won't rave about this any further and ruin what is supposed to be a happy thread. I may have overreacted. Wouldn't be the first time.

Just quickly, I agree. If some effort had been made at some point to shed a few tears, I would be slightly more accepting of it all. But I guess showing sentiment is regarded as 'unprofessional'.

When I was watching the concert last night, I laughed when Don asked about the score. I wonder rooting for. If he was bidding on Astros, money coming his way.

Don did that in Houston. As he was introducing Chris, he told the audience it was a bad night for the Cowboys.

Yes, Iím guessing Don is more of a Rangers fan but he probably was rooting for the Astros. Funny he was thinking about it all the way in Detroit while so many of us in Texas were glued to the TV watching the game.

Going by the concert in Louisville, the next song is Hotel California for the 1st encore, followed by RMW and Desperado for the 2nd encore. I havenít found those videos but they may still turn up.

So thatís most of the show. I tried to follow the setlist so it seems almost like being there, lol. In addition to the ones noted, One of These Nights (the 3rd song) is also missing.

This is the last full concert of the year (Iím assuming they wonít play the whole setlist at the Opry, which is more of a private show anyway). Until Don and the others started dropping hints about performing again, I never would have expected these concerts. It remains to be seen if they perform again next year. If so, I doubt they will do a major full-blown tour. More likely they will play a few dates here and there and hopefully one of those will be in southeast Texas. :-)

At any rate, Iím proud of these guys. It couldnít have been easy moving forward without Glenn. They put on some really good shows and Vince and Deacon handled it very well.

Im so glad they decided to go again. Though I got to see them at the classic east, I already hope to see them again. I agree with you Delilah that I doubt they will do a full tour but I bet they do groups of mini tours in all parts of the US. I hope they come to mass but New England would do. But I think the guys sounded great. Deacon seemed to gain confidence and do better. I think he should get more lead vocals next time (if thereís a next time). I think they should the set list a little but other than that, the band is doing great the way they are

Thanks. I still don't agree with the reviewer, but it's better that I stay away from these threads, because there's no point in commenting only when I have something negative to say. I already did that too much in the Don Felder sub-forum. I'm not interested in what the band does now, but I do occasionally check out what people say about gigs they've seen.

Same here. I went to the Classic East as well, and I'm hoping they'll come to MA (would love Fenway in the spring!) or somewhere else close, as I'd love to see them again.

Delilah, thank you so much for posting the videos. I've loved watching them!

As to the review, everyone grieves in their own way. From what we heard, Joe broke down during his performance at the private memorial service, so you can't say he doesn't care. To me, they don't have to cry in front of the audience to make it heartfelt and respectful. (And I feel that their tribute to Glenn at these shows is heartfelt and respectful. In addition, both Joe and Deacon have mentioned it as healing.) I know I'll regret stating my opinion on this, but I'm going to do it anyway. I don't want to feed the negativity, but I feel strongly about it. I'm sick of Don (and Joe and Timothy, to a lesser degree) being treated as complete jerks because their tribute to Glenn isn't good enough for some.

Chaim, FreyPower said, "If some effort had been made at some point to shed a few tears, I would be slightly more accepting of it all."

She wasn't at the memorial for Glenn or actually with any of the guys over the past almost two years, but it sounds like if she were able to confirm that Don, Joe and Tim cried on stage during an Eagles concert, then she would be more approving of their activities. I think this is what MC was referring to. FP wants the guys to make an effort to cry so we can see it. This way we will know that they are actually sad that Glenn died.

New Kid In Town
10-29-2017, 03:19 PM
Well, I am sure they have all shed more than a few tears, particularly poor Deacon. Shedding tears to me means nothing more than they are emotional at that particular time. I have seen video where Joe was near tears when he played TITTL in 2016, Tim also seemed very emotion on the first video I saw of him singing PEF. I did not have the pleasure(or money) to attend the Runway concerts Don did in Dallas. However, I read reviews that said he could barley talk about Glenn without getting chocked up at the first one. Everyone grieves in different ways.

I believe what most Glenn Frey fans would like to see is a concert dedicated to Glenn like a George Harrison type thing. Proceeds could be donated to RA and UC. And that has not happened yet. Whether it will or not time will tell.

MC, I understand why the sarcasm in this post is directed so strongly at me. I wasn't there, I don't know these men, so how the hell would I know anything about their grief? I stand admonished, I guess. :ziplip:

It isn't so much that I wanted them to break down on stage or anything like that. I chose my words badly. As you all know, I don't believe they should be on a stage together anyway unless it had been at a proper tirbute concert. If they had done that, then they would have had a reason to show their feelings even for a limited time.

I'm afraid that I still don't feel that what they are doing by flashing up one photo is a 'tribute'. I said what I would have preferred and I didn't get it. I cried for the moon (shine on you crazy diamond).Now like Toni I will stay away from these threads.

Even though we often disagree I do agree that they should had either a Glenn tribute concert or made all the future concerts had slightly more tribute in them. But I don't think tears are good because at the end of the day the people pay good money to have fun.

This article was referenced earlier in the thread but I didnít see a link. Some interesting insights from the newspaper of Glennís hometown that noted how the band was met with ďan affectionate, grateful reception from a near-capacity crowd that clearly grasped the weight of the occasion.Ē

Also this:


Friday was an all-around family affair at LCA. On hand was Cindy Frey, widow of Glenn and mother of Deacon, whoíd flown in from L.A. with Eagles manager Irving Azoff. Ahead of show time, she made her way to Section 125 for a high-spirited reunion with about a dozen of Glenn Freyís cousins and their spouses, treated to premium seats for the night.

And running around backstage was daughter Taylor Frey, now assisting her brother as part of the bandís road staff.

With all the strong support from Glennís family, itís hard to believe that Glenn would have objected to the band carrying on without him. It could very well have been his wish that the band continue. Of course only his family and close friends would know for sure.

The Eagles is not under the total control of Don Henley or Irving Azoff. The Frey family has a substantial interest in the brand and is clearly supportive of keeping the band up and running the only real question is how long they can continue with this current lineup and game plan.

Second, I have listened to a couple of songs and frankly am greatly underwhelmed. I can't imagine ever seeing the brand in concert with this lineup or any other one.

Like it or not, they are a band and their ďbrandĒ was established many, many years ago. How long they can continue depends on their health, vocal abilities, schedules and personal preferences. Based on the tremendous success of these concerts, the audience isnít going away anytime soon, so that doesnít appear to be a factor at this time.

What happens with the band/brand does not impact me one way or the other so really I am not giving it much thought except in response to issues that do interest me. I have already stated I was greatly underwhelmed by the sampling of performances I have watched. I also don't care to speculate what Glenn would want as I would imagine he made his wishes/expectations/demands clear to those who matter. With all the markets here and abroad as well as Azoff and his management/booking expertise, the guys continued good health, willingness there is no doubt this could go on indefinitly.

i dont know but there must be pleny to do as part of the road crew.

IIRC Taylor had a small role on the tv show Roadies which has since been cancelled. FYI Cameron Crowe had a hand in creating the show. Small world, eh?

The private memorial/tribute for Glenn Frey was held at the LA Forum.

A memorial for a rock and roll legend at the LA Forum brings together a star-studded lineup, while the crew faces an uncertain future. Season Finale!

Since others have speculated that Glenn wouldnít want the band to go on without him, Iím pointing out that if thereís anyone on the planet who would know his final wishes or objections, it would be his family and close friends (which may or may not include Vince Gill). And I donít believe they would go against what Glenn wanted.

We must concede it's possible his family, close friend and long time manager Irving Azoff, Don Henley and others close to Glenn Frey did not know his "final wishes" in terms of the fate of the band upon his death nevermind those who would ultimately be asked to replace him. Personally, I do not pretend to know one way or the other what Glenn Frey wanted or didn't want. It doesn't change how I feel about the band/brand.

Ok, so Glenn Frey, the man with a plan, a head for business, the caretaker of the legacy of the band he started, who had access to the best legal advice money can buy, made no provisions for the bandís future in spite of his advancing age and serious health concerns, not even a mention to his wife of what heíd like to happen (or not happen) with the band if ever something should happen to him. Yes, I concede itís possible, but quite improbable.

I donít think they sound substantially worse than before. Gill is not Frey but heís still an excellent singer. Having deacon and Gill both being younger (Deacon much more so than Gill) helps and having two replace one gives more depth and power to the harmonies.
