Great. Enjoyable concert, brave to get Hotel California out of the way about three songs in, and good to hear some of the solo songs as well from Don Henley and Joe Walsh. Still don’t really understand fully-seated concerts, sure the band are old, but some of us can still stand!
Much hilarity as I recall when the the three large ladies stood up in the first track. After much shushing from the people behind, one of them turned round with the immortal words: “I paid a hundred quid for this ticket so I’ll fucking dance if I want to!” Then the rest of the crowd were up for the duration.
