Best Eagle's Concert I've Seen

"I just watched the concert on NBC using my High Definition TV broadcast, and 5.1 surround sound audio. It was absolutely terrific.
Every member of the group sounded great. Don Henley looked a bit heavy, and older, but sounded just fine.
If your favorite Eagle is Joe Walsh, this is the concert for you.
He sang more on this concert, and was great as always.
This concert contained almost every one of their hits, and left out a lot of their lesser known materials. Don Henley mentioned in some of his commentary that they don't mind at all doing their hits, even though they've performed them hundreds of times, and in fact thinks they've improved the songs and their performances over the years. I agree. In my opinion, this is a better concert than Hell Freezes Over, and that was very good.
How many bands can you name that have a country sound and are as popular with rockers as well as country, and have been around over 30 years?
Just great!!! By the way, the video and sound quality are top notch.
One Of The Best Bands around period.

"I was fortunate enough to see this concert when they came to Philadelphia and I can easly say it was one of the all time best concerts i had ever been to - easily in my top 5. The songs and the performances were outstanding--should you expect anything less from such a legendary group of musicians....Hearing them perform these classics live brought chills to ones spine and the occaisonal tear to the eye....a rarety in concerts these days. I am so greatful that they decided to record one of these magical nights for all to see and the set list is impressive...If you are lucky enough to have them heading to your area in the next few months you have to see them-do NOT miss this oppertunity....this is one concert you will get your moneys worth and then some....But for those who cant make it and for the ones who have expreienced the Eagles Live this is going to be great to relieve those memories and classic songs all over again. If you are a music lover this is a MUST HAVE for your collection. Be prepared to be blown away by one of the best bands EVER. The Eagles. 'nuff said."
Elders still flying high

"You'd never know from my music collection that I like The Eagles, singularly or as a whole;nary a cd to be seen, except for one old Joe Walsh entry. This DVD caught my eye as it was used to advertise a big-screen TV at my local video rental place, and on a whim I rented it. It brightened up my weekend considerably.
It's comforting to see so many of the veteran performers still operating at such an energetic level, especially after self-proclaimed headlong charges toward oblivion. This is addressed eloquently by Joe Walsh ("I was drunk once - for twenty years")in a new song called "One Day At A Time" - an exhilerating and typically Joe Walsh song that caught my attention from the very first note. Joe has always been my favourite Eagle anyway; he seems to have the best approach to life, and certainly he would have to be in the running for Funniest Rock Musician. He'd definitely have my vote.
This two-disc set covers The Eagles from the start, and incorporates all the individual high points. As already stated, the energy level is way up there; it was recorded in Melbourne, Australia, with an audience ranging from little kids to oldsters like me, and not only is it a packed house, everybody is singing and dancing. No dozers here. And on stage, you'd never know these guys are cruising toward that nasty word "old" (Joe Walsh will be 59 in November; Don Henley is already there, and Glenn Frey will be 58, also in November); they never were a group to gyrate and race around on stage, but here they get together on some of the songs and hop in time to the music, clearly enjoying each other's music and style.
All the great songs are here; "One Of These Nights","New Kid In Town" "Peaceful Easy Feeling";one of my personal favourites, "Heartache Tonight"; along with a spate of Henley's most singable, best-loved songs, "Dirty Laundry", "Boys Of Summer" "All She Wants To Do Is Dance", and Glenn Frey's hits as well, "Take It Easy", "Desperado". Joe Walsh's music is also well represented, but Joe really only has to be there for it to be worth watching; he makes a party wherever he goes. During "Life's Been Good" here, he dons a hardhat with camera attached and films the audience.
This is a high-powered, well-produced concert; makes me wish I'd been there. As a DVD, it's a keeper.
