    Default An Evening with the Eagles @ Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA - October 20, 2017

    I made a thread for last night's show. I saw an hour of the show on Periscope. So I missed half the songs. The guys sounded great. The place looked packed.

    I'm looking forward to the recap of the show. One more show in Atlanta.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    Here's the setlist. In the City and Walk Away switched places. So it looks like they will have a Joe song early in the show than having all his songs toward the end.

    Thanks Shun. I realized too late that I should have made a separate thread for the Greensboro show but someone had already posted to the pre-anticipation thread about the concert so I just went along.

    Edit: I just posted a video on the Evening with the Eagles Mini-tour thread. It’ll be interesting to see if the guys keep everything the same e.g. it seems Don wasn’t singing along much on TITTL and there was no shout-out to Randy.

    Thinking of you and hoping for the best. Stay strong Randy!

    Here's a few videos.

    Life in the Fast Lane. No jumping from Don this show, but that was cute in Greensboro. He got Joe jumping. Lol

    I think that was me posting about Greensboro in the anticipation thread - trying to post quickly from work! Sorry about that - perhaps an admin can correct.

    Anyway, here are some photos and a review of last night from the local paper.

    YoungEaglesFan, Don was jumping during the beginning of Life in the Fast Lane during the Greensboro concert.

    Those were amazing videos. Best quality I’ve seen so far. I was interested to hear what don had to say about best of my love with the tuning because I haven’t found any website that gives the music for that song have it in that tuning but don and Glenn talk about it. Interesting

    BJB, it was my fault, I’ve been here more than a year now and I should have known better.

    Thank you for these links. I found this interesting from the first review:
    But Henley is not big on heavy-handed sentimentality. There was no official tribute to Frey. He did introduce Deacon with a brief story about how Glenn would play music with Deacon in small clubs before 150 or so. “His first gig with us?” Henley said. “Dodger Stadium. 55,000 people. Hats off to you son.”
    Also this about Vince:
    Gill handled most of the songs in which Frey or Randy Meisner sang lead in the originals and the crowd embraced him wholeheartedly. He generated the concert’s first standing ovation 15 minutes in with a rousing “Take It To The Limit.” Paradoxically, Gill is unassuming for a rock star and like Deacon, he let the star members of the band – Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit – do most of the talking.
    The pictures are nice. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Joe wear that yellow police tape guitar strap before!

    ETA: I agree about the quality of the videos. I wonder if the person who took them used a digital camera instead of a cell phone.
