Ever wonder what it would be like if Eagles had Gills? Well Sunday night in Toronto one of the most famous bands in the world rolled into The Vault (aka Scotiabank Arena) for a Sold Out show. And those in attendance were not disappointed. Vince Gill joined Don Henley, Joe Walsh and the rest of The Eagles up on stage.
For a band that has played thousands of shows since their inception in 1971 they have a few new faces on the current tour. Country music Icon Vince Gill has been sitting in with the band on this latest run of shows along with Deacon Frey son of the late Glenn Frey and Don Henley’s son Will, is also sitting in with the band. The night started off with Seven Bridges Road a Steve Young cover that they have been performing to kick off this tour and the fans ate it up. It went from Bridges to one of the bands biggest hits Take It Easy and it didn’t really slow down from there.
This was my 1st time seeing the iconic band and let me tell you it was worth the wait. Just something about hearing them live vs. playing the vinyl. The banter was kept to a minimum But when Mr. Walsh spoke the fans were listening. The music was strong throughout the night. Belting through 24+ songs and not missing any of the bands big hits. Joe Walsh took to the mic on a few occasion to perform some of his own hits such as Rocky Mountain Way and Life’s Been Good along with Vince Gill taking his turn with a cover of his Don’t Let Our Love Start Slippin‘.
It was during the encore that the notes of Hotel California were played and entire SOLD OUT Crowd lifted from their seats and swayed and danced along to what might have been the best song of the night. The band is back at Scotiabank Arena for another show tonight and if you can get down to take it in I would strongly suggest doing so.
