Regis College Eagles Concert – Apr. 1, 1974

The Regis College Eagles concert was held in the Regis Field House in Denver, Colorado on April 1, 1974. The Talbot Brothers, a Christian singing group, opened for the Eagles. Regis College, now Regis University, is a private Jesuit university in Denver founded in 1877. Don Felder had joined the Eagles in early 1974, so he was still fairly new to the band.

This concert occurred near the beginning of the On the Border tour, and was just a little more than a week after the On the Border album was released. They had a show the next night at another Colorado college called Fort Lewis College. California Jam was then a few days later on April 6.

Randy had played bass in James Taylor’s band three years earlier at Denver Auditorium Arena.

“The April 1 concert in the Regis Fieldhouse revealed that the group has evolved into one of the finest country-rock groups in America today. Their many years of experience working with other musicians and as a unit has produced a successful blend of rock and country elements in the tradition of the Byrds and Buffalo Springfield.”
