    Exclamation Re: MGM Grand, Las Vegas, 5/24/2015

    I really hope the band's management and members read this and DO take it to heart. And WAKE UP!! Last minute decision to go see these guys (2nd time I've seen them) and scored some great floor seats in 25th row at a reduced price. No doubt the music was really fabulous and Bernie Leadon showed up, which really enriched the harmonies. Sound was great too for an arena.
    But but but.....The show started right at 8, while people were still on line in the crowded entrance to the MGM, which was a bummer to have to rush in. As I wrote on TripAdvisor the MGM Grand had outrageous prices and limited concessions, so long waits and more missed show. And they had no lids on waters, beers or mixed drinks, only the $5 sodas that are sold by the cup. More on this in a minute.
    So, two things they blamed squarely on the Eagles. This BS about no cameras and Nazi-like confrontations of anyone who pulled out a cellphone, even to text or use social media. The Eagles have continually been accused of being crass money-grabbing assholes, but this really hammered the point home. We brought our 4 yo son, who was bored to tears and he couldn't even play games on our cell, since as security said, the glare interferes with the band and they requested no cellphones at all. Really?? The glare from the 25th row!! Let's call a spade a spade, these fckers are afraid someone might sell a picture or pirated audio for a few hundred bucks and they want every last dollar they can grab from your pockets. Luckily we were able to get a t-shirt in the lobby for $20 that sold for $40 inside the show, of course! And of course we have to pay for all the alimony, palimony and rehabs that narcissist Frey and drunk/druggie Walsh accumulated. God knows how many bastard children exist! And they actually bragged about this in a couple of their songs, the part about the ex's and drunk/drug-alogues.
    And second, without any mention on the tickets at all they decide to take your cameras after you wait on line an hour and then have to go back to the check station, to check your camera...and get back on line. They clearly said, "this is the Eagles shitty policy, not ours". And the $5 waters in cups with no lids...Eagles policy. Maybe they are afraid someone would get pissed off enough and hit Frey in the head with a water bottle. That would have actually been funny to see. Maybe next time someone should "accidentally" trip and spill water all over the huge electronic consoles in the back of the arena...to thank them for their policy of course. As the concession person said, for a band that loves to talk about ecology, they sure like to waste plastic!
    Conclusion, the music is still great as it always was, perhaps even better, and they are still money-grabbing assholes as has been written about since the mid-70's.

    Wow -

    You certainly don't sound like an Eagles fan. At least you are aware of their policies now and can keep your money out of their "money grubbing" hands.

    You can't be for real... what kind of parent would pay $200 for their four-year-old kid to go to a rock concert just so he could play games on his phone the whole time?

    I smell a troll....
