Eagles impress sell-out crowd, fans say it was “worth the wait”


It’s been almost seven years that Thai fans have been waiting for “The Eagles” and its four virtuoso members Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit to return.  And when they did last Sunday, Feb. 20, fans were not disappointed because they were as good as the last time.

As the doors of Impact Arena opened, more than 10,000 fans, including local artists Pom-Toe from Asanee-Wasan, Kaleidoscope band members, Mam Patcharida, Jib Wasu Saengsingkaew, Kob Taxi, 25 Hour band members, poured in, eager to see their idols The Eagles.

The Eagles perform at the Impact Arena in Bangkok on Sunday, Feb. 20. The Eagles perform at the Impact Arena in Bangkok on Sunday, Feb. 20.

The band played more than 30 hit songs including favourites Heartache Tonight, Take It Easy, Witchy Woman, Seven Bridges Road, and Life In The Fast Lane.  The highlight, of course, was the song that everyone knew the words to – “Hotel California”.  The band played two sets, with the second set including many of their biggest hits, such as I Can’t Tell You Why, In The City, Lyin’ Eyes, Long Road Out Of Eden, Take It To the Limit and Desperado.

With their unrivalled talent and world class performances, it was no wonder why their fans were mesmerized throughout the whole concert.  They were moved by the slow songs and danced to the fast songs.  They were treated to an amazing multimedia show on the giant screens and no one wanted to leave even after the concert had ended.

And now, following The Eagles’ show, the third of the 3 Legends series of concerts arrives in Bangkok with “Singha presents Santana Live in Bangkok” on March 1.  BEC-Tero Entertainment will bring another of the world’s greatest musicians to entertain his Thai fans.  For a fantastic evening of hits including Smooth, Black Magic Woman, She’s Not There, Maria Maria, The Game Of Love and many more you can obtain tickets from all branches of Thai Ticket Major.
