Eagles Manchester Arena July 11th 2009

Great night. Great to see the Eagles again (my last time was 30 years ago on the Hotel California tour!). Much much better than I had hoped. I’d feared that it would be too slick and too AOR, and some of it was, but it was also really really good!
The sound was faultess, even from my cheap (£50 ouch!) seat at the back of the vast MEN arena , and the set was a good mix of old and new. I must say that I was not entirely impressed by the suits that the band wear. What is that all about?! Joe Walsh stood out as the star of the show for me. I’d forgotten how good some of his songs were. Walk Away brought back memories. I probably haven’t heard it since the last time I saw him play it in the 70s. Glad I made the effort to see them again while they are still touring.
