Eagles at the Omni in Atlanta – June 19-20, 1977

The Omni Eagles concerts in Atlanta were June 19-20, 1977. Andrew Gold opened for the Eagles, and Steve Miller joined them on stage for their final encore on the first night. The Omni was the largest venue in Atlanta, and the attendance was 15,800 each of the two nights. It was Atlanta’s primary concert venue from 1972 to 1997. These Atlanta concerts were a few days before the infamous Knoxville concert of June 28.

The Eagles had recently returned from their April and May tour of England, Scotland, Germany, Netherlands, and Sweden. They performed at Wembley Empire Pool in London four days from April 25-28, 1977.

Beginning in 1972 the Eagles have been in Atlanta a few times. They were also at the Omni in 1976 with Fleetwood Mac, and at other venues there in earlier years.
