This is for those on the fence about the upcoming Eagles concert at Scottrade Center on March 18 because of the death of Glenn Frey. You know, the one’s who whine about “It’s not the full band” blah blah blah. Look, If you really cared about that you would have stopped listening to the band in 1975 when Bernie Leadon left.

Lots of bands have lineup changes. Rush, The Beatles, Journey (No, Steve Perry was not the original lead singer), Genesis, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Iron Maiden and Metallica are just several that come to mind. But I bet you didn’t stop listening to them, did ya?

Well, you should really think about going. Why? Because Glenn’s son Deacon Frey has taken his father’s place in the legendary band and sounds amazing.

Deacon is 24 and looks and sounds a Hell of a lot like his dad in the Eagles’ heyday of the ’70’s.

I, for one, am extremely interested in this show as I was able to catch their last show in 2013 with Glenn.

Good tickets are still available and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com or at the Scottrade Center box office.

Don’t pass this one up, I have a feeling you will regret it when you hear the reviews the next day, if they go like I think they are going to go. Not that I am passing judgement yet, I never do that. I just have that kind of feeling about this show.

The Eagles – Don Henley, Joe Walsh & Timothy B. Schmit, with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey – set their initial 2018 tour dates featuring stadium concerts in Orlando, Miami, Denver and Minneapolis with Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band; Washington D.C. and Philadelphia with James Taylor & His All-Star Band; and Dallas, Texas with Chris Stapleton sharing the bill. Additional 2018 shows are an “Evening with the Eagles.”

Media have raved over recent concerts –

“…this recent tour’s set list has leaned heavily on the group’s mighty catalog of familiar and, based on the crowd’s wildly enthusiastic response, beloved singles.” – Rolling Stone

“…as expected, musically it was almost perfect throughout the night.” – Forbes

“…impeccable harmonies and musicianship all night long…” – Elmore Magazine

“…the powerful performance felt like a proper celebration of Frey and the legacy of one of the most successful bands of all time.” – Time Out

“The Eagles understand that getting fans to fall in love with a band …requires songs that make listeners believe they belong too.” – Los Angeles Times
