Concert Review: The Eagles at Quicken Loans Arena

Share on Nextdoor


On a tour billed as “The History of The Eagles,” the most appropriate visual representation of the group’s tumultuous run would unfold during the second set, as the band ripped through the James Gang classic “Funk #49” with the imagery of an Eagles-branded pinball machine on the video screens behind them.

More than four decades have passed since the Los Angeles-based group made their debut and in that time, various members have come and gone, ping-ponging off the turbulent bumpers of dictatorship helmed by mainstays Don Henley and Glenn Frey. The silver ball of band politics has taken many a quarter in the form of lost wages post-dismissal and/or legal fees resulting from squabbles both onstage and off.

But somehow after all of these years, there’s still a group that continues to fly high with a great amount of legitimacy under the banner of “The Eagles” and the notoriously tightly wound group even appeared to be having a good amount of fun during Tuesday evening’s performance at the Quicken Loans Arena.
