The University of Cincinnati Eagles concert was May 8, 1975 in the Armory Fieldhouse on campus. Dan Fogelberg opened for the Eagles, and the concert was part of the One of These Nights tour.
The Eagles were presented with the Key to the City of Cincinnati by the Vice-Mayor backstage prior to the concert. A photo is below of the Eagles and the Vice-Mayor.
This concert was just a few days after the Kent State Ohio concert of May 3, 1975 (which was Kent States’ memorial weekend for the 5-year anniversary of the campus shootings), and it was just 2 days prior to the two nights of shows at the Arie Crown Theater in Chicago May 10-11. Then, the McHenry Illinois High School special concert in McHenry, IL was on May 12. The McHenry concert was a free Eagles & Fogelberg concert for the students held at the high school, and it was won by the students by participating in a contest sponsored by WCFL radio station in Chicago.

“The presentation was made before the Eagles took the stage and seemingly served as an inspiration because they really outdid themselves and played some great sounds that rocked the house.”
