Eagles concert at The Summit in Houston, TX – Nov. 6, 1976

The Eagles concert at the Summit in Houston, Texas was part of a long 24-city and 27-concert tour of the western United States in support of their Hotel California album, which was released December 8, 1976.

JD Souther opened for this Summit show and later joined the Eagles on stage for “Best of My Love”. JD announced to the crowd that it was Glenn Frey’s 28th birthday.

November 1976 was a very busy month for the Eagles, since they played somewhere almost every night. The Summit indoor arena opened just a year earlier on Nov. 1, 1975.

Summit Concert Video:

The video of the full concert is below. Both Randy and Joe are wearing their Criteria shirts, and this is the show where the two of them come skipping out onto the stage for the first encore. It also has the extra-long intro to “Witchy Woman” and the extra verse to “Tequila Sunrise”.
