Six O’Clock Triple Shot – ‘History Of The Eagles’ Lands In GR
(The Six O'Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
Tonight, The Eagles land in Grand Rapids' Van Andel Arena for what promises to be a historic evening filled with high priced talent. "The History Of The Eagles Tour", has garnered nothing but rave reviews since it kicked off over a year ago. Don Henley and Glenn Frey have put together a spectacle for all to see. Well, those who could afford the ticket prices, that is. Prices have ranged on average from nearly $50.00 (plus service fess of $10-$12) for behind stage seats, to $200.00 (plus service fees of $25-$30) for front and center seats. Nosebleeds, in sight range, are $90-$120 (plus service fees of $15-$20). But, at Van Andel Arena, arguably one of the best indoor venues in the Midwest to see a concert, that promises to be a price fit worthy for what may be a final curtain call for one of America's all time greatest bands.
Following some set lists of the tour over recent weeks, they seem to be putting on what they promised: a close as full history of the band as possible. Bernie Leadon rejoins the line up for an early portion of the show, after a grand intro of "Saturday Night" from Henley and Frey. Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmidt should make there presences known early on as well, giving way for a set list totaling 27-30 songs. There are selections from all of the original six albums, plus some songs from Walsh's catalog; solo and James Gang. Expect lots of lead vocals from Joe tonight, as well. All in all, I predict a classic, one-of-a-kind, maybe last-of-a-kind, performance that should push the three hour limit. I'm very jealous of those who will be in attendance.
Tonight, three from The Eagles catalog for your Six O'Clock Triple Shot, all live!! Frey, Henley and Walsh will all take a turn singing "Tequila Sunrise", "Wasted Time", and "Pretty Maids All In A Row", only on 94.9 WMMQ!!
