The Eagles Share Their Legendary History With Salt Lake City Crowd

The Eagles swooped in Salt Lake City and gave the crowd near capacity at the Energy Solutions Arena a history lesson than three hours on the band itself.

Opening Song »The night began as Glenn Frey and Don Henley walked on stage with acoustic guitars in hand and played" Saturday Night "the second album of the band," Desperado ". Frey then gave a quick tutorial on how the band was formed and - to a roar of approval from the audience - Bernie Leadon introduced, which was a founding member of the band in 1972 and joined for this tour. The three original members sat on stools and cases of equipment and performed "part here this morning," the debut album of the band, "Eagles".

   By the time the band reached the fourth song, "Witchy Woman", bassist Timothy B. Schmit and guitarist Joe Walsh had joined the group to complete the rest of the lineup for the first half of the series.

Highlights »For the intermediate time arrived, the band had played 12 songs from their first four albums, including crowd favorites" Already Gone "," Lyin 'Eyes "and" Best of My Love ", which shows the tight vocal harmonies and country rock with dyes that made the band famous.

After the break, the Eagles launched their successes more up-tempo and brought audience members to their feet with hits such as "Heartache Tonight", "Those Shoes" and "The Long Run". Walsh and his guitar work is presented largely in the second half of the performance, with the band playing his solo hits "In the City" and "Life has been good." Walsh quirky personality was on full display as he traded licks with Steuart Smith, who had taken the place of Leadon for the second half of the series. A rousing rendition of "Life in the Fast Lane" closed the second half of the show.

Encore "The band returned to the stage for the first encore and the crowd went wild as the first note of" Hotel California "rang through the arena. Over the next seven minutes, the crowd took on a trip to the legendary hotel, punctuated by Walsh and Smith dueling guitar solos that bring the song to a close.

For the second encore, The Eagles returned as Leadon launched into one of his biggest hits, "Take it Easy". Members of the audience rose to their feet singing and dancing along to every word. The last song of the night was "Desperado", the perfect way to relax a wonderful evening of music from a band that has suffered its share of ups and downs through the years. Increasing the lights, Frey, Henley, Schmit, Leadon and Walsh returned to the stage to thank the audience. But it was the audience that wanted to say thanks for three hours of history, music, and a few laughs along the way.
