Day on the Green Eagles concert – Aug. 3, 1976

This Day on the Green Eagles concert at Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, CA included a total of four bands:

  • Renaissance
  • Loggins & Messina
  • Linda Ronstadt
  • Eagles

This was Day on the Green #6 for 1976, and it started out in the late afternoon. By the time the Eagles took the stage it was evening, and this was the first time a Day on the Green performance was after dark.

Bill Graham was the promoter for Day on the Green, and the Eagles also performed in 1975 and 1977. This was one of the last shows on the One of These Nights tour.

San Francisco Examiner (San Francisco, CA) – Aug. 1, 1976

“The addition, recently, of Joe Walsh to the Eagles front line, which now boasts three first-rate guitarists plus bassist Randy Meisner (of the lovely voice) makes it a group of apparently unlimited potential.”

San Francisco Examiner (San Francisco, CA) – Aug. 4, 1976

“The Eagles were preceded on stage by a real eagle borrowed from Marine World.”

  1. I feel for the live Eagle. It reminds me of butterflies from butterfly farms being released at weddings. It seems wrong. Meanwhile the articles are a good read and the photos are great as usual.

    1. I know, I feel bad for the Eagle, too. It’s not visible in the photo, but I am assuming the poor Eagle is chained to the perch its on so he can’t attack anyone.
