Editorial Reviews

Without doubt, the Eagles are one of the all-time biggest acts in popular music since the dawn of the rock'n'roll era. The band's roots go back to their role as defining artists in the phenomenally popular Southern California rock scene of the '70s, a decade in which they delivered four consecutive #1 albums. Their momentous 2004 farewell tour filled stadiums around the world, and this 2-DVD set captures one of the most stellar events from that now-historic global sweep.

I just watched the concert on NBC using my High Definition TV broadcast, and 5.1 surround sound audio. It was absolutely terrific.

Every member of the group sounded great. Don Henley looked a bit heavy, and older, but sounded just fine.

If your favorite Eagle is Joe Walsh, this is the concert for you.
He sang more on this concert, and was great as always.

This concert contained almost every one of their hits, and left out a lot of their lesser known materials. Don Henley mentioned in some of his commentary that they don't mind at all doing their hits, even though they've performed them hundreds of times, and in fact thinks they've improved the songs and their performances over the years. I agree. In my opinion, this is a better concert than Hell Freezes Over, and that was very good.

How many bands can you name that have a country sound and are as popular with rockers as well as country, and have been around over 30 years?
Update: Finally on blu ray. I thought it would be impossible to improve, but here it is. The blu ray version sounds and looks even better. I've watched this concert many times. I never get tired of it!

Just great!!! By the way, the video and sound quality are top notch.

I was fortunate enough to see this concert when they came to Philadelphia and I can easly say it was one of the all time best concerts i had ever been to - easily in my top 5. The songs and the performances were outstanding--should you expect anything less from such a legendary group of musicians....Hearing them perform these classics live brought chills to ones spine and the occaisonal tear to the eye....a rarety in concerts these days. I am so greatful that they decided to record one of these magical nights for all to see and the set list is impressive...If you are lucky enough to have them heading to your area in the next few months you have to see them-do NOT miss this oppertunity....this is one concert you will get your moneys worth and then some....But for those who cant make it and for the ones who have expreienced the Eagles Live this is going to be great to relieve those memories and classic songs all over again. If you are a music lover this is a MUST HAVE for your collection. Be prepared to be blown away by one of the best bands EVER. The Eagles. 'nuff said.

I'm a Melbourner who attended this concert and it's fantastic to see how perfectly the experience was captured on this DVD collection. Finally a DVD release from a band with a peerless catalogue which doesn't skimp on material - on Farewell 1, they give you EVERYTHING - I can guarantee you, that was played at this concert.
The sound is superb, the filming appears to have been done on HD which works fine; the look is filmy - not harsh like older video formats. This concert's material is perfectly chosen - I can't think of any track that I would have wished for - maybe 'Pretty Maids in a Row' but you can always run back to your copy of 'Hell Freezes Over' for that. Everyone is in great voice - it's nice to see Glen Frey taking his rightful place as band leader - he looks like he's having a ball - as if it's all new for him again. 'Take it to the Limit' is absolutely superb, even without Randy Meisner. You don't exactly miss Don Felder's presence although I think the extra 10% of having his wonderful touch on the guitars would've been the icing on the cake. They appear to be very unified without him though so maybe this is the only way it works for the band. Lots of terrific tracks from the solo careers - particularly Henly. Joe Walsh has a day out, playing crankin' solos and clowning around. 'Life's been good' has been needed sorely on DVD for years. 3 hours of vintage Eagles, beautifully played, very faithful to recorded versions, perfect harmonies - what more could you ask for? I was aware of some criticisms here of overuse of fiddle on the arrangements. I disagree. The arrangements are excellent and the fiddle is tastefully used and faithful to the feel of every song in which it features. Just purists who can't open their minds, even a little! If you like the Eagles, have no doubts about this one. Buy it.

You'd never know from my music collection that I like The Eagles, singularly or as a whole;nary a cd to be seen, except for one old Joe Walsh entry. This DVD caught my eye as it was used to advertise a big-screen TV at my local video rental place, and on a whim I rented it. It brightened up my weekend considerably.

It's comforting to see so many of the veteran performers still operating at such an energetic level, especially after self-proclaimed headlong charges toward oblivion. This is addressed eloquently by Joe Walsh ("I was drunk once - for twenty years")in a new song called "One Day At A Time" - an exhilerating and typically Joe Walsh song that caught my attention from the very first note. Joe has always been my favourite Eagle anyway; he seems to have the best approach to life, and certainly he would have to be in the running for Funniest Rock Musician. He'd definitely have my vote.

This two-disc set covers The Eagles from the start, and incorporates all the individual high points. As already stated, the energy level is way up there; it was recorded in Melbourne, Australia, with an audience ranging from little kids to oldsters like me, and not only is it a packed house, everybody is singing and dancing. No dozers here. And on stage, you'd never know these guys are cruising toward that nasty word "old" (Joe Walsh will be 59 in November; Don Henley is already there, and Glenn Frey will be 58, also in November); they never were a group to gyrate and race around on stage, but here they get together on some of the songs and hop in time to the music, clearly enjoying each other's music and style.
