The Eagles played two sold-out, back-to-back concerts at the Academy (renamed the Palladium in 1976). Dan Fogelberg opened both shows.

The band performed three songs from their not-yet-released album, One Of These Nights, including “Too Many Hands,” written by Randy and Don Felder and sung by Randy, the title track, and the instrumental “Journey Of The Sorcerer,” written by Bernie Leadon. My setlist is compiled mostly from the reviews, which were probably of the 8:00 show.

Setlist:

Take It Easy
Outlaw Man
Doolin-Dalton/Desperado Reprise
Train Leaves Here This Morning

Noted curmudgeon, Dave Marsh, put in his two-cents’ worth below. Don’t worry, he softens by the end. Well, sort of. He doesn’t give poor Dan Fogelberg a break at all.

More photos. Since the the Eagles performed a double bill, some of the band members changed shirts for the second show (most notably Glenn Frey & Don Felder). Not sure which photos are from which performance. Randy wore the same “One Of These Nights” t-shirt for each show.”
