Saw "The History of the Eagles" tour last night in OK City with my daughter. Fantastic! They sounded great and put on a great show... start to finish. They pretty much did what they named the tour, starting out with Henley and Frey on a couple acoustics and went through their entire career in 3+ hours. Even had their original lead guitar player in the mix... plus a few other guys in the background on misc keyboards and percussion and such. I think I counted 9 guys on stage at one point.
Two words - Vocal Magic! The harmonies were jaw dropping amazing to hear live. Literally made me cry. They still have it! Everything sounded great except the bass, that was the only thing that just didn't sound right. It was like they had a low pass filter set at 40hz and fed only subs or something... there was a thump or rumble but the tone was just missing. Really noticeable on sings like "One of These Nights" where the bass carries parts of the song. I wanted so bad to go down to the sound guy and tell him something wasn't right... but he was down in the middle of the floor and my ticket didn't cost enough to get down there... lol. I doubt they would have listened to some nobody Eagles fan anyway.
Joe Walsh is the man... brought the house down more than once. Everyone loves Joe... lol. I don't know how many guitars he played... some LP's, some Strats, an SG, an Explorer, a PRS, a couple of EBMM's (one of which was pink sparkle Axis). Interesting double cutaway Les Paul with one overall tone and a coil tap switch in place of the removed tone pot. They all sounded pretty good, except the PRS was kind of dull and dark sounding. Glen Frey played a lot of different ones too... but the one that stands out was a black double neck EBMM. Not an Ibby in the show!
Well worth the trip... highly recommended... but we didn't pull back in to the driveway until like 4:30 this morning and my wagon's a draggin'... as they say out west. I need to tell my daughter to pick concerts that are at least in the same state!
