The greatest selling album of the 20th Century may surprise some it was Eagles Greatest Hits 1971-1975, a true testament to those classic songs from that era. The Eagles are still touring including a stop in Boston later this year after the passing a couple years ago of co-founder Glenn Frey. They put on a great show but prices are too high for many.
Luckily for those who couldnt afford to see Eagles at the Garden, there was an opportunity last Saturday to hear those classic songs at The Cabot in Beverly, in the form of Eaglemania.
Eaglemania is a nationally known Eagles Tribute and they didn't disappoint. They had a lead singer with a good voice that carried most of the songs especially the Don Henley ones. But like the real Eagles they had 2 others take the lead on songs.
Musicianship and vocals were solid all night and were faithful to the original arrangements, but gave the band time to shine on solos.
Setlist covered all the biggest hits throughout out the Eagles career. But also included other rarer songs such as Seven Bridges Road with wonderful harmonies, the Don Henley opus The Last Resort, and even the post 9/11 song Hole in the World.
Crowd was into the group all night and everyone had a good time. While nothing beats the opportunity to see Eagles live having the opportunity to catch Eaglemania is a solid alternative and recommend them if they come to your area.
