Eagles Rock BJC

Friday night, The Eagles rocked and rolled the Bryce Jordan Center as part of their “Long Road Out of Eden” tour. Since these older bands have early bedtimes, the concert started promptly at 8 p.m. with no opening bands.

This tour has been going on since May of 2008, spanning until the end of 2010; the tour has covered North America twice, Europe and Australia.

Playing some of their hits early, the Eagles’ spectacular musicianship was evident after my first experience ever hearing “Hotel California” live. The six and a half minute song was too short for fans, applauding and cheering on the solos as Don Henley belted out the lyrics.

The Eagles is comprised of four members, but their live show contained several backing musicians that created an epic rock and roll sound echoing off the walls of the BJC. From the overweight classic rock heads dancing in the aisles to the students who just wanted to see a classic rock band perform, everyone in attendance was on their feet at some point grooving out.

They played tracks from their new album “Long Road out of Eden,” which was their first studio album in almost 30 years. The two-disc album was no comparison to the classic tracks played by the Eagles.

Both the Eagles and the BJC put on a successful concert, fulfilling the fantasies of many classic rockers. Another classic musician, Bob Dylan, is coming to the BJC Nov. 9.
