    Default Bethel Woods, Bethel, New York - 7/25/2013

    My first show ever. What can I say? totally incredible. I had tears in my eyes during most of the set, I was in awe.

    I cannot give good descriptive details, I am really bad at doing detailed reviews. Can't wait for the Madison square garden shows!


    I will say that was my first and last time going to Bethel Woods. horrendous trying to get out of there , show ended 11pm, took an hr to find car, another 2 hrs to get off venue property/main road home. then 2 hr drive home. Henley Honey did it right and stayed at a hotel!

    I had to remember which bale of hay I was parked near


    so often times it happens that we live our life in chains and we never even know we have the key.

    Too bad about the parking/exiting. Did it feel like the original Woodstock? Lol! Just kidding. At least the show was worth it (I hope).

    And I dream I'm on vacation 'Cause I like the way that sounds,
    It's a perfect occupation for me.

    the location of the venue is supposed to be the site of Woodstock. beautiful venue, would have liked to arrive a lot earlier to explore.
    definitely worth seeing the Eagles last night! they still have their magic!

    I wouldn't go up there again to see any artist. but i'm glad I got to see my first eagles show!

    Thanks Maddi! it was so much fun

    In a fit of what I can only call Eagles induced mania after last week's show, I bought Maddi's extra ticket yesterday and joined her and her friends for the show. Again, what a great experience by the guys. I loved seeing the show again, and could anticipate and savor details and catch things I missed the first time.

    Lots of wonderful moments, but I must say that I love Joe 10x more for the shirt he wore. It said "What Would Levon Do???" What a nice touch for him to wear it in Bethel.

    Thanks so much to Maddi for the ride! Being car-less has its challenges sometimes. And agree about the venue. I'll never see another show there, unless I'm staying overnight and have a post concert tailgate. It was worse than Great Woods in MA, which held my previous crown for being the most nightmarish place to get out of.

    That said , it was all worth it!

    words cannot describe how incredible they are after all these years, what they've been through as a band, the demands on the Eagles to top "Hotel California", like said, I had tears in my eyes during most of both sets!

    Had a great time meeting Erin (NYCFan), it was definitely a great time, and some adventure home . we do learn from experience though, such as life!

    I am so glad you were able to go, and enjoyed the show, and the adventure! Please, next time can you at least remember which hay pile we parked near?
