Great trip down memory lane last night. Joe was shredding, Vince Gill was helping to make the loss of Glenn Frye a little less noticeable along with Deacon. Don Henley combined voice and drums to help the crowd relieve the 70s and 80s. Timothy’s voice was a little thinner but none the less in my opinion
Doobie Bros were solid. I had never seen Zac Brown band and was blown away. IMO they stole the show and that’s not an insult to the Eagles who were fantastic. Joe Walsh played the best I have seen him in 3 other shows. Vince Gill was great but would have loved to hear more of his amazing guitar skills especially on ‘I Can’t Tell You Why’, but they were great overall.
Amazing! I’ve always said the Eagles were more country than rock. With the addition of Vince Gill to their current tour, that observation is fully realized. For supporting evidence I suggest you track down Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles. This country tribute album to the Eagles was released in 1993. The album features covers of 13 Eagles songs, performed by country music acts, including, “I Can’t’ Tell You Why” by Vince Gill. Two other observations about the show: Deacon Frey was amazing. His father would be proud. And Joe Walsh can shred with the best of them. It all added up to a terrific concert!
The Eagles made this concert one of the most memorable. I have seen them in the past, but this one I will carry close to me always. Deacon Frey sounds so much like his father. I could close my eyes and see Glen Frey as I listen. He is an up and coming artist to follow. Don Henley wow there are no words to describe that distinctive wondrous voice. Ah such a dream to hear Don Henley sing. Joe Walsh fantastic guitar and songs. He really knows what the fans love. Timothy B Schmit sweet romantic voice sing the songs that lift an inspire the heart. He too is one that can brings all in the area to their feet. The night was filled with song and laughter, smiles and tears. Old memories now new, everyone there felt such adoration for the Eagles and appreciated their presents here in Sacramento. A must see concert any time they play.
