    It would have been nice if they kept “I Don’t Want to Hear Anymore” on the setlist. I guess if they would play smaller, more intimate venues they could perform deep cuts and more solo material that hard-core fans would appreciate. They could cut down on some of the extra personnel and play some acoustic numbers. I bet that would go over well for fans but probably wouldn’t make much $$.

    Here’s a review from the Houston Chronicle with an interesting take on bands that keep touring after losing key members.

    Bands continuing on in some form after a key member has passed (Adam Lambert with Queen, John Mayer in Dead and Company, Axl Rose fronting AC/DC) will likely become the norm as time marches on and classic rock's biggest names make their permanent exits. A band's catalog, if sturdy enough, can transcend even the very people who recorded it.

    Luckily the Eagles catalog has enough acolytes that there won't be a shortage of players to keep the fire alive. Keeping things in the family, in the case of the Eagles, is a bonus.
