Live In Concert: The Eagles, New Year’s Eve 1999
Get the champagne and noisemakers ready! It's the Eagles' Millennium Tour plus New Year's Eve concerts from Tom Petty, John Fogerty and the Kinks.
It will be December 26 when you hear the show, but you can ring in 2021early this Saturday night on Live in Concert. It was 1994 when "hell froze over" and Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, Don Felder, and Timothy B. Schmit reunited on stage as the Eagles, fourteen years after their ugly breakup. Skip ahead five years, and we'll take in a show from the Staples Center in Los Angeles from December 31, 1999.
The guys are in a festive mood, and you'll hear Please Come Home for Christmas and Funky New Year, along with their biggest hits like Hotel California and Take it to the Limit. The Henley solo songs Dirty Laundry and All She Wants to Do is Dance make the setlist, along with Joe Walsh's Funk 49.
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played many New Year's Eve shows over they years, we've got one from the vault that took place in Santa Monica in 1978. John Fogerty did a big tour in 2019 and we've got a show taped on December 31 at a casino in Oklahoma as he showcases the favorites he wrote for Creedence Clearwater Revival: Proud Mary, Fortunate Son, Travelin' Man and more. Three classics from The Kinks round out the show this week on Live in Concert.
We don't know how long it will be before we can get back in to the arenas, stadiums, halls, theatres and clubs for live in-person shows, so we're bringing them to you on your radio every Saturday night at 8 on Kalamazoo's Rock Station 107.7 RKR.
