BBC “In Concert” TV show – Mar. 20, 1973 (aired Apr. 5, 1973)

The BBC “In Concert” TV show which aired Apr. 5, 1973 was an Eagles concert that was filmed at the Paris Theatre in London a few days earlier on Mar. 20, 1973. The Eagles were in London to record the Desperado album, which was released Apr. 17, 1973.

Both the audio and video of this “In Concert” show are below. Also, Fil from Wings of Pegasus analyses Peaceful Easy Feeling from this show, and that video is below. Fil’s videos are always interesting to watch if you like to delve into the technical aspect of playing the guitar and singing.

The Eagles were also at the Royal Festival Hall in London just four days earlier on March 16, and they were at the huge Popgala Festival in Amsterdam March 9-10. Then later in the year in November the Eagles would again be in England (and other parts of Europe) touring with Neil Young.

  1. Fil from Wings of Pegasus gave his analysis of “Peaceful Easy Feeling” his very best. That’s dedication.
