    I'm with you on that, Dreamer!

    Youíre welcome, NKIT but no I am not. Iím just a nerd who likes to dabble in numbers, stats and facts. 🤓

    The HFO tour was very successful; I didnít include 1994 data b/c they ranked #3 in the list of top-grossing acts (The Rolling Stones were #1 and Pink Floyd were #2). But I probably should have since they did gross $79.4 million (or $134,533,710 in 2018 dollars). That was with the tour cut short due to Glennís illness plus it didnít even start until late May. They didnít rank in the top 20 for 1996 which isnít really surprising given they only played 28 shows. Itís possible they came in the top 3 for that time period.

    As far as these figures go, keep in mind that Iím comparing years to years, not tours to tours. Iím also using concert revenue for comparison purposes, not total earnings. Perhaps the Eagles came out ahead during the LROOE and HOTE tours in terms of total earnings b/c that would include revenue from album and DVD sales and the related merchandising, etc. However it would not be fair to compare those numbers to last yearís tour when there was no new album release or anything else like a documentary to bring attention to the concerts (I donít count Anniversary re-issues).

    At any rate I havenít come across anything to substantiate the Eagles ranking #1 or #2 for the LROOE or the HOTE tours. Maybe someone else can find something. For the last 10 years acts like Bon Jovi, Madonna, U2, Taylor Swift and One Direction have been making the mega-buck$.

    Yeah. I never bought that line.

    How about the oft-repeated argument that touring is the ONLY way to keep the music alive, and thus they must tour in order to ensure the Eagles music does not die? Let's take that to its logical conclusion. If music is only "kept alive" by being experienced in concert, it is dead for all those who cannot afford to attend such concerts. Thus, Eagles music is now dead to everyone but the rich.

    Very good point.

    It's bad enough they are continuing without Glenn. It's even worse to try to charge what they do without him (who I consider the most important member of the band, but one of two at any rate). It's pretty much the equivalent of rubbing alcohol in a wound. It's worse than salt, IMO. I think that argument about keeping the music alive is weak. It's just another attempt to try to justify this abomination of a band now.

    Remember, not only is the music being kept alive, it's actually kept alive by the band that recorded it. These guys recorded this album after all. 😁

    It looks like the Saturday/Sept. 28 date is practically sold out. The Platinum package ($6500) is still available.

    There are still a few dozen standard tickets left for the Friday date and lots of resales. The Platinum package is still available as well.

    So, ok, here's the plan: $6500.00 for a 9-song album, that's a tiny bit over $722.00 per song, off the original. 9 of us go together, throw in $723.00 apiece, and we can each use the seat for one of the songs. Can we make this happen, people? ​😃

    Is this before or after the shared cruise room?
