    Default Eagles w/ Chris Stapleton @ Minute Maid Park, Houston TX 6-15-18

    I enjoyed the concert but am pretty tired right now, so no review until later. Just a couple of things-

    Timothy is now upright

    Vince sang a different song from his catalog and dropped “Next Big Thing”

    No BOML on this setlist

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

    Yeah for Timothy now standing. I know he’s happy to get out of the boot.

    The song for Vince is Don’t Let Our Love Start Slippin’ Away. It looks like he’s been playing that song since Salt Lake City. I love that song.

    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

    Glad you enjoyed the concert, D. Would have loved to have been there, myself.
    Eagerly awaiting your review!

    Thank you so much for the immediate update on Timothy. So grateful to know of his apparent recovery.

    My Evening with the Eagles, Vince Gill and Deacon Frey

    Well, I have finally seen my first Eagles concert. It was kind of wild seeing Don, Joe and Timothy on the same stage together after seeing them separately at their solo shows. It was a good show, not the best I’ve seen, but still enjoyable. Of course I was keenly aware that this concert was special and different from past years. Glenn wasn’t there and it felt kind of odd and surreal in a way I wasn’t expecting. After watching the various video clips of this tour I had come to accept this was going to be quite different plus I never saw them live with Glenn anyway. Yet, his absence was definitely felt.

    The pluses: musicianship was great. Joe can still play guitar like a pro and Steuart Smith is no slouch either, although I still prefer Felder. Vince showed his guitar chops with the first solo in TIE which received a lot of applause. It was really neat to see Deacon play the AG solo on his father’s Old Black.

    Vince sang another lovely version of TITTL. He did not try any high notes but held out the note on “time” for several seconds towards the end and received a lot of applause. The crowd sang along quite loudly and of course I thought of dear Randy. I was pleasantly surprised by Vince’s performance of HT. I wasn’t overly impressed when he sang it on the videos but live it worked really well.

    Vince and Joe received more applause than anyone. Deacon was also loved by the crowd. Although a bit shaky at first, Don’s voice was back in form after a song or two. Deacon sounded great. His vocals were strong.

    The minuses: the show was on the low-energy side. Maybe b/c they just returned from a break and this was the first show of the summer leg. TBS seemed to struggle on ICTYW; he was fine on LWKUA though it’s not as vocally demanding. Minute Maid Park is a baseball stadium and doesn’t have the best acoustics. I would have preferred a different venue although the amenities at Minute Maid are nice.

    Other notes: Will Henley played along in the shadows to TIE, NKIT, PEF, LE, and Those Shoes. He may have been on Tequila Sunrise too but I forgot to look. Joe’s songs definitely got the crowd going. Vince performed his hit “Don’t Let Our Love Keep Slipping Away” which was nice and unexpected. When “Funk 49” started, Don was gone from the stage- where’d he go? He eventually emerged from backstage and took his place at the bongos to play his straight beats. I saw Timothy and Vince saying something to each other while Joe or Steuart were playing a solo.

    Don did speak of Glenn, saying he was there in spirit and in all the songs they were performing. Deacon spoke of having so much fun and that there were a lot of us out in the crowd. It was probably even more obvious when Timothy did his bit with the audience and the the lights shone on different parts of the crowd.

    On the closer, “Desperado”, it’s obvious Don’s vocals aren’t what they used to be. Still it was wonderful to hear him sing it. And I couldn’t help but admire how he’s holding it all together, continuing the dream as the only guy on stage who’s been there from the very beginning to now.

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

    For another POV, my husband, who isn’t a big Eagles fan though he likes several of their songs, said the show was a letdown. He thought Vince sang too many songs and that Deacon should be singing his father’s songs. His comment about Vince- “he should go back to singing about his John Deere tractor” (referring to Vince’s hit song “One More Last Chance”: well she may have took my car keys, but she forgot about my old John Deere). He thought Don and Joe’s solo shows were better.

    ETA: I meant to say a word about Chris Stapleton, who put on a fine show with his 4-piece band. His last song was his hit cover version of “Tennessee Whiskey”, during part of which he used to sing the band introductions, a novel approach.

    I’m glad that you could finally the band in concert. I’m disappointed they didn’t play BOML. I hope they play it when they come to where I’m at. It’s too bad they were low energy

    Thanks for the recap, Delilah. I’m looking to seeing them on Wednesday. This will also be my very first Eagles concert ever, but I also seen good videos and DVD with Glenn. I will definitely know it will be different. I will miss Glenn when I go.

    With me not seeing a concert with Glenn, I will try not compare the two. Not saying you were comparing.

    It is good to see Timothy back on his feet. Like I said earlier, I know he was happy to get out of the boot. I know I was happy when I finally completely stop wearing my boot.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    Thanks Delilah! I've been to several of Timothy's solo shows. I really wish he would sing a couple of songs that he wrote. There are some that I know others do/would enjoy.
