Chicago Stadium Eagles concert – Nov. 11, 1976

The Chicago Stadium Eagles concert of November 11, 1976 was played to a nearly sold-out crowd. The Eagles were at University of Michigan for a show in the Crisler Arena the following evening on November 12, and they were at Iowa State University the day before the Chicago show on November 10. November 1976 was a very full schedule of concert shows for the Eagles.

JD Souther opened this Chicago Stadium show, and this was part of the Hotel California tour. Randy is wearing his Randy’s Rodeo shirt from San Antonio. Since he wears it often, it must be a favorite.

“The appearance of the Eagles was a two-part event. The first part of the Eagles concert was a tribute to the Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young–two of the most revered and loved of country-rockers of which the Eagles have borrowed from.
And the other half of the concert was a breakaway into ‘new horizons’ made possible by the addition of newest member Joe Walsh.”

“There were glorious moments throughout the nearly three-hour show. Like Meisner’s beautiful falsettos on ‘Take It To the Limit’ and ‘Witchy Woman’.”
