I want to share this DVD with you. I received this as a gift for my birthday in 2007. This is a live concert from Melbourne Australia.
The Eagles have long been one of my favorite bands that ever existed. This concert was held in the Rod Laver Arena in 2005 I believe.
Don Henley opens with an all time favorite ‘The Long Run'. After this, Glenn Frey is up with a beautiful live version of ‘New Kid in Town'.
I never realized until watching this DVD that Don Henley not only sings, but plays Guitar and the drums as well. In this one he is pounding out the soft drums. Glenn has not lost his touch. He softly performs this song like he just wrote it. This is as good as it was day #1.
Don Henley returns to the spotlight with the third song in this concert. A beautiful song that helped boost this bands success, ‘Wasted Time'. I really think these guys have actually become better in old age. This is a wonderful song.
‘Peaceful Easy Feeling' is another Glenn Frey ballad that is up next. This one sounds a little more intricate than it originally did. Maybe it's the live version fooling my eyes. This one has a lot of instruments.
I don't want to spoil all of the events that occur on this DVD, so I will give you a fast rundown on what is on this DVD presentation:

#6-One Of these Nights

This is a spectacular concert. I have never really seen such a quality concert on DVD before. I love how these guys change clothes and dress in different styles through out the concert.
The lighting on this concert is perfect for viewing on television.
This DVD is packaged in a great cardboard dual cover and comes with the ‘Farewell Tour' booklet that informs you of the people involved, producers, etc.
Many of the songs are from individual releases that the band created when the broke up. Glenn Frey, Don Henley and Joe Walsh play some of the hits that kept their music alive during the split.
I love to sit back and play this DVD on the weekends. I have watched it more than twenty times since April 19, 2007 when I received this from my boy Daniel. I am very pleased to have this one in my DVD collection. I am sure it was pretty spendy however. What ever the cost was, it was money well spent.
If you ask me which song is the best, I would say: " I can't tell you."
