Jimmy Buffett & The Eagles - Saturday, April 14th
« on: April 15, 2018, 02:42:57 PM »
My wife and went to the show last night and it was great time. Ticket weren’t cheap, but it was definitely worth it.

Buffet performed his top hits with a few covers thrown in for good measure. His set was a solid 90 minutes and his performance was consistent with that last couple of times I saw him. Jimmy still has it and really seems to enjoy his craft.

As expected, the Eagles were exceptional. With Vince Gill and Deacon Fry covering Glenn Fry’s parts, it really worked. Their harmonies were spot on and it truly shined in their opening song, Seven Bridges Road. The major take away was how great they still are; Joe Walsh is still amazin and guitar and vocals were as good as they’ve ever been. A solid 2.5 hour set with no breaks was more than expected and the energy of their performance never faltered.

There were only a few issues and they seemed to be technical and in the audio tent. At times, Buffets vocal seemed to cut out and Walsh’s guitar levels were low a few times.

We were to the right of the stage at the bottom of the upper level and I grabbed this shot between the end of the show and the first encore.

I saw them a while back when they did Amway Arena.  Spot on then also.  Too bad they don't package up these concerts you go to and sell them for a crazy price on blu-ray.  They would be worth owning.  They had some great memorable comments at that show and would love to have it to watch again.

I saw The Eagles at Yale Bowl in 1980.  I think tickets were $10 and there were 2 other bands.  They sounded great and did 4 Joe Walsh songs which made me happy. 

I saw Jimmy Buffet a few years ago in Jacksonville.  It was a fun time and the crowd was really into it.
