***The Eagles shows Friday at 7PM and Wednesday at 7PM have SOLD OUT. There are still some tickets available for the Friday 10PM show at Wire - grab them while you can***
This has been a tough year for the music industry - so many greats passing on. Last month, we paid homage to the great Maurice White with Earth, Wind & Fire, but a little earlier in 2016, we lost another great - Glenn Frey. He had a stellar solo career, but we feel that his legacy is best represented as one of the principal members of the Eagles.
You know these songs. Everyone does. Their greatest hits record still holds as one of the best selling records of all time with over 42 million sold, and still going. You know the one - blue cover, bird skull, tribal font? Look through your records - it's in there. Hotel California was ranked by Rolling Stone as #37 on the best records of all time, and they have sold more than 150 million records overall. That's some music that speaks to people.
They were put together as Linda Ronstadt's backup band, but soon decided they would go out on their own, and later added Joe Walsh to the mix to add some more rock to their sound. We will travel through the catalog, from the early county influenced jams like Take It Easy, Peaceful Easy Feeling, and Desperado, all the way through the late rockers like Hotel California, Life's Been Good, and The Long Run, with lots of stops along the way.
We know how popular these shows are, and a big chunk of the tickets sold as soon as we announced it at our previous show, so we added a third late show at Wire so you can be sure to get in and celebrate this seminal American band, if you get your tickets soon. Great songwriting, backed up by fantastic playing and huge tight harmonies are the hallmarks of this band, and we will endeavor to bring all of it to you live. 4 guitar multi instrumentalists, a string section, and some great singing talent join the Tributosaurus Core to Take It To the Limit, one more time. Come and join us!
