The Eagles at the Pepsi Center, 10/5/13

EAGLES @ PEPSI CENTER | 10/5/13 The Eagles' current tour is titled "The History of the Eagles," and this performance at the Pepsi Center did a great job of living up to that title with side lessons about Linda Ronstadt's old touring band, the country-rock stylings of Poco in the 1970s, and the musical innovations of the Flying Burrito Brothers. The main focus of the survey, of course, was the Eagles, and the lessons came in the form of stories and songs delivered by the iconic band. Despite the scope of the venue, the show felt both intimate and immediate.
