The Savannah Civic Center Eagles concert in Savannah, GA was Friday evening, July 1, 1977. It was the start of the Independence Day weekend in Savannah. This was one of the last shows on their Hotel California tour and one of the last shows Randy Meisner would perform with the Eagles. Andrew Gold opened the show for the Eagles, and he sang his hit, “Lonely Boy”.
The Beaufort Gazette newspaper of Beaufort, SC did a full-page spread on the concert with included several photos.

“‘Take It To the Limit’ sung by bassist Randy Meisner, was probably the show’s finest moment as the Eagles discarded the clinical quality that marks many of their songs.”
