Fan Reviews and Photos

In our Concert Review Forum, we've got a bunch of reviews up. I wanted to take special note of some really great fan photos take by Maleah of DHO at the Chicago Sept. 24 show - you can find them here (scroll down three posts). Thanks Maleah!

Joe's Engaged!

Joe recently appeared on Steve Dahl's morning program for a couple hours. He chit-chatted, answered fan questions, played Indian Summer, a bit of the Confessor... and also happened to mention he's engaged to Marjorie Bach! Congrats to Joe.

You can listen to the podcast on the Jack FM website (it's on Sept. 26, mostly hour 3 and hour 4 (although he's on a bit at the end of Hour 2).

Eagles in Holland 1973 - full show!

As my final treat in my "week of celebration" for the first year of Eagles Online Central, I've got a real rarity! The earliest full concert bootleg I've come across (I think it's even earlier than the BBC video, as the guys are a lot less polished and they mess up a few times). It's rough, but it's great to see, and even includes Randy doing Keep on Tryin' (I know of no other videos of that). Thanks to Joop from The Netherlands for this!

I've decided to try something new - I'm putting the files up for download, or you can stream them through a player. See what I mean on the new video concert page.

In other news, according to the official site, the Eagles are set to play Worcester, Massachusetts on November 26. They'll be at the DCU Center. Tickets go onsale Sept. 22 through Ticketmaster.

New Download Page: Featured Live Show

Since not everyone has the time to conduct trades, I thought it would be nice if I put up an entire show for people to listen to occasionally. I'm calling it the Featured Live Show - this time, it's the infamous last concert in Long Beach, California on July 31, 1980. And no, you can't hear threats between the band members, but between songs the sound mysteriously drops out....

Also, I've added a few new sidebars, which you'll see eventually if you hit the front page enough!
