    Thanks, Delilah. Well, we had heard they had filmed that show for release, but I had decided that they had changed their minds. Maybe because they were unable to go forward with any concerts this year.
    But if they REALLY wanted to make some money, they should release classic material. So many fans are dying for it! I still cannot understand their thinking!🙁

    They are trying to appeal to a younger set of fans who will continue to take the band into the next decade I think. I would love to see more from the millenium years up to Glenn 's death. When he played in Niagara Falls in 2011 they were filming the show. Having been there I would love to see that released!

    Oooooh, yes!
    I think a 5yr tribute dvd would be so nice! And a 50th anniversary compilation video of the band! (Pipedream),

    I would love a release of some classic material! A 50th Anniversary compilation sounds like a great idea. Don H said recently that the band wonít be able to reclaim copyrights to their pre-1978 material until 2028. So I think that might be a stumbling block for now.

    At any rate, itís encouraging that they are releasing stuff like the live 1976 concert with the HC set and now this new live album/DVD. Im a little surprised that we are getting a preview of sorts with the ESPN broadcast.

    Henley and Azoff must know the bandís touring days are coming to an end so they are capitalizing by releasing material while they are still a name and a draw.

    Hereís a link to the Eaglesí store website where the album/DVD can be ordered. It looks really nice, with some nice-looking pictures on the album cover and a tour book.

    I agree I think they are trying to keep it going, and to give something to all the fans that missed out this year. I was very lucky I saw them in February. I know some are upset with how they are touring, and I totally get it. Of course itís not the same without Glenn! I would absolutely love to see Long Run era live stuff, outtakes, more HFO footage, LROOE, HOTE, etc Iíd gobble it all up, and I too would rather see that.....but I will be tuning in because I just adore them so much.

    Geez, Delilah, I didn't know about the copyright issue. Bummer! Sadly, alot of fans will be gone in eight years.

    They can release this and not a dvd of the HOTE Tour.
    Question - Why do they have to wait until 2028 for the copy write ownership. I thought they owned them when they won the lawsuit against David Geffen. And yes, I would LOVE to see some classic 1970's material released. I won't hold my breath on it though.

    Delilah, Thanks for the link.

    IMO, the most likely reason there hasnít been a video release from the HOTE tour is that Glenn didnít want it, possibly due to his illness. Other reasons could be that:

    • it would be a painful reminder to Glennís family of his last year and what he went through
    • maybe they want to leave something for their heirs to release in the future.
    • they didnít want to over-saturate the market given the recent release of the HOTE documentary and the concert DVD


    Also think about how it would have appeared if a HOTE concert video had been released within year of Glennís death? I can just see the comments now: ďoh those greedy Eagles, profiting from the death of Glenn!Ē

    As far as the lawsuit with Geffen, that had to do with publishing rights, which the Eagles did get. However they still donít have ownership of the original sound recordings (the masters). Speaking of which I donít know if itís ever been established to what extent any of the master recordings were destroyed in that UMG fire.

    I doubt it. It's quite common to release such things after an artist dies. I honestly can't think of an example where such an action has been criticized, although I suppose there might have been some.... perhaps in cases where the party releasing the material had had a bad relationship with the deceased? Do you have a certain example in mind?

    At any rate, the fans on this board were all desperate for it.
