Indiana University Assembly Hall – Sept. 1, 1974

The Indiana University Eagles concert was in the I.U. Assembly Hall on September 1, 1974. The Eagles and Kansas opened for the Beach Boys. It was originally supposed to be an outdoor concert at the 10th Street Stadium, but rain changed the plans to an indoor concert in the Indiana University Assembly Hall.

“The Eagles livened up the darkness with a string of hits composed of many of the better songs of the day. The band opened with ‘Take It Easy,’ followed with ‘Outlaw Man’ and then hit the better songs from their current album like ‘Already Gone’ and ‘Midnight Flyer’.”
