Classic rock legends play their timeless hits to a packed crowd on Thursday
Some bands will have their music played on the radio forever. Long after Ray J has quit making music, and Katy Perry starts seeing gray hairs, some of the classics will still be rocking religiously on the stereo and fans will still be singing along to their music. The Eagles are one of those bands, so it should be no surprise that decades after their debut and rise to fame, music lovers still flock to stadiums to see them.
The band put together an exclusive tour where only a handful of cities have the priviledge of seeing these legends of rock for two and a half hours, without an opening act. Luckily, Denver fans were able to partake in this glorious venture on Thursday night. The band, consisting of two of the original members, and two members that have been with The Eagles since the late 70s played pretty much every classic tune the group has pumped out over the years including favorites such as "Hotel California", "Desperado", and, of course, "Take it Easy." In addition, there were some hits from Don Henley's solo work including "The Boys of Summer", and "Dirty Laundry."
The band showcased their musical versatility by playing a myriad of instruments, including Don Henley playing his hand on the bongos. The crowd was a mix of older and younger fans, but singer Glen Frey was well aware the band is getting up there in age, as well as some of it's fans when he said, "Check your tickets tonight, this is the Assisted Living Tour". But age certainly didn't stop the group from delivering a vibrant and musically polished show. It was a classic show, given by a classic band.
