The Eagles played to a venue that was only about a third full, but gave an impressive performance. REO Speedwagon was the warm-up act.
Don’t miss the live audio below.

The band delivered a stunning performance, despite the fact that fire marshals harassed the small audience looking for smokers. Although the reviewer below felt that all four Eagles were polished performers, he seemed most impressed with Bernie and Randy:
“Bernie Leadon, guitar and banjo player extraordinaire, has managed to produce a strong rock sound without abandoning the tasteful flavor of soothing country picking. At different times, he played electric guitar and banjo leads. His soothing sparkle was matched in perfect counterpoint by bassist Randy Meisner, who has to be one of the most competent men on the instrument since Rick Danko.”
Listen to three songs from the show below. I chose the ones that were the most Randy-centric: “Certain Kind Of Fool, a blistering 6-minute version of ” Tryin'” (the last song before the encores), and “How Long.” This is an audience recording, so the sound quality is not the best. Headphones or earbuds are highly recommended.
Note: The last couple of minutes of “Tryin'” is applause, not only for Randy, but also because it was the last song before the encores.
On “How Long,” Glenn, Don, and Randy each take leads. Randy’s comes in around the 2:20 mark.
