History of the Eagles – Live in Concert
(2013–15)

The History of the Eagles – Live in Concert is a concert tour by the American rock band Eagles. It was launched in conjunction with the release of the 2013 documentary History of the Eagles. The tour is scheduled to visit North America and Europe between 2013 and 2014 as well as Oceania in early 2015. It began in Louisville, Kentucky at the KFC Yum! Center and will conclude on March 15, 2015 in Auckland, New Zealand.

Critical reception[edit]

Howard Cohen from Miami.com praised the performance in Miami, noting the "harmonies — pristine, soaring and spot-on —uncannily have remained as peerless as they were on the original recordings."[1] Jim Harrington from San Jose Mercury News gave a mixed review of the performance in San Jose, writing the show "was a very educational, and sometimes interesting, affair -- but I'm not sure I'd want to take the course again."[2] Francis Pelliccario from The Lantern gave a positive review of the show in Columbus, writing the band "brought the show back down to earth with the true meaning of rock ‘n’ roll."[3]

Concert synopsis[edit]

The show opens with only Don Henley and Glenn Frey walking onstage with acoustic guitars and sitting on road cases and wooden stools in an intimate setting. The two alone perform the song "Saturday Night" from the Desperado album. The two then proceed to explain the founding of the band and they describe how they were introduced to Eagles guitarist Bernie Leadon. At this point, Leadon appears onstage and the three perform "Train Leaves Here This Morning" from their debut self-titled album. Frey then talks about his introduction to Randy Meisner, founding member of Poco. He also speaks of musical influences on the band, specifically citing Poco. Timothy B. Schmit, a key member of Poco, appears on stage and joins the three in performing "Peaceful Easy Feeling." Henley then moves to a minimally sized drum kit and the four then perform "Witchy Woman." As the song begins, Joe Walsh walks onto stage without an introduction. The five then move to a full band setting. They are joined by the five remaining supporting musicians. A curtain rises to reveal the full lighting and video rig and the full band equipment is moved forward. While this is happening, a pre-recorded video is playing of Frey and Henley going into detail on the evolution of the band. From this point forward, the show moves in a regular fashion, with banter in between most songs either pre-recorded or told in person. The first half of the show focuses primarily on the early days of the band, the soft ballads, and the lesser known songs. After an intermission, the band comes back to perform more slower ballads. Midway through the second set, the music moves from slower songs to more well known up tempo pieces. The show ends with two encores. The five session musicians leave the stage and the five key members are left to take a bow.

The concert's content changes from venue to venue. The Lucca, Italy, concert - sold out and with an international audience - had no intermission, had one encore, and focused on the band's most well known songs, with little space for the presentation of the band's history and for the acoustic sound of the band's first albums. This was possibly due to a request from the event's organizer. The concert started with the four members walking on stage and opening with "How Long", followed by "Take it to the limit" and "Tequila Sunrise". The duration of the show also changes from venue to venue, with the concert in Lucca taking one hour and forty minutes.
