I don't appreciate the tabloid style.
But seeing (and hearing) Deacon singing with the guys will be a wonderful thing for those who go. Hopefully there will be clips for the rest of us.
I am also glad for reporters to stop dredging up Randy's health issues. Go Randy!
I hope there will be clips too, FreyFollower. No doubt it's going to be an emotional time for the band members and their fans in the audience. This will be a very different Eagles.

And yes, go Randy!

I will be surprised if any of the members preform any solo material but hey, I've been surprised before. (understatement)

I am really pulling for Deacon, and I hope that he has fun and does well. He looks just like his father but I think he has his mother's eyes, from what I can tell.

I also really hope that there will be clips of the concert available to the public.

In a recent interview, Timothy was asked if he plans any more solo gigs. He said he would like to do more but is on 'standby' in case the Eagles do more shows after the Classic ones. He stressed that nothing is planned. Timothy is obviously up for it so hopefully more shows will be forthcoming.
I have reasonably good tickets for Classic East but I don't expect to see much other than on the big screens so it would be great to get Platinum tickets for any future shows that may materilise as there is nothing like being in the first few rows!

I'd put my house on Joe performing solo material, and The James Gang material too. He has at every other Eagles show he's played since he joined in 1975. In fact he played Rocky Mountain Way with the Eagles when Leadon was still in the band.

I think the major question is whether Tim will do solo (or Poco) material. There's a likelihood that he'll get three lead vocals. The obvious three, I Can't Tell You Why, Love Will Keep Us Alive and I Don't Want To Hear Anymore, even Keep On Trying are all early set songs. He may sing something else, up tempo, in the later stages of the show.

If Tim gets to sing a new solo track, it's only fair that Don and Joe get to sing one too. It wouldn't be a surprise if Don did a couple of solo tracks. It's only during the last 'History Of The Eagles Tour' that they didn't do any, probably as he didn't consider them as part of the History of the Eagles. Don's solo tracks always got a good audience reception when they were performed in my presence, especially Dirty Laundry and The Boys Of Summer. They've also done New York Minute, The Heart Of The Matter, Sunset Grill and All She Wants To Do Is Dance.

Apart from his regular half dozen, Joe has also performed Turn To Stone, Ordinary Average Guy, Help Me Through The Night, All Night Long and One Day At a Time with the Eagles.

I hope the Eagles play songs that are not entirely mined from the seventies.

I wonder if they'll be influenced by Fleetwood Mac's set. I'm not well up on Fleetwood Mac but I think they'll have new songs in their set list.
