    Unfortunately I missed most of it but what I heard sounded awesome. I hope they do a DVD of this concert (and remix the brass section; the guitar solos on Hotel California were almost inaudible over the blaring saxophones). Henley hasn't lost anything on vocals over the years.

    Saw about half - looked great and sounded great, especially for network TV. Joe Walsh still plays like he was back in the James Gang - but the helmet cam and womens pantsuit pants was a bit much.

    The Eagles have got to be the best sounding recorded live band ever. It is clear they are perfectionists with harmonies and sound quality and look effortless when following an obviously well crafted and practiced series of arrangements. "Hell Freezes Over" is still one of the better sounding concert DVD's and sounds like this new one will be more of the same.

    I hadn't even heard about this until I got home tonight, watched the last bit of the first HD show, and watched some of the replay. Excellent mix, and Don Henley can still be a powerful singer - Desperado was inspiring.

    But, I was expecting it, waiting for it, and I wasn't disappointed - here comes the ad for the forthcoming DVD! Yes people, we have just watched a two hour Universal/NBC infomercial for the full length double DVD set (hopefully without all the interview clips interrupting the show!

    Disc 1:
    Long Run
    New Kid in Town
    Wasted Time
    Peaceful Easy Feeling
    I Can't Tell You Why
    One of These Nights
    One Day At A Time (New Track)
    Lyin' Eyes
    Boys of Summer
    In The City
    Already Gone
    Tequila Sunrise
    Love Will Keep Us Alive
    No More Cloudy Days (New Track)
    Hole In the World
    Take It To the Limit

    Disc 2:
    You Belong to the City
    Walk Away
    Sunset Grill
    Life's Been Good
    Dirty Laundry
    Funk #49
    Heartache Tonight
    Life in the Fast Lane
    Hotel California
    Rocky Mountain Way
    All She Wants To Do Is Dance
    Take It Easy
    Desperado

    Too bad, no Disco Strangler or All Night Long

    It's almost wrapping up here. The mix was terrible throughout. the horn section overpowered everything else, vocals were buried, hard to hear at times. The mix seemed to get a little better near the end. Don Henley's voice has lost some of the high range. Glen Frey sounds pretty damn good still.

    And that crowd - was there anyone there under 30?!

    I saw the show in the Meadowlands in Jersey. The answer to your question is no !

    I didn't see all of the program, did they mention where the show was recorded ?

    Melbourne perhaps ? That's where the DVD was recorded. BTW, did we just watch that DVD merely broadcast by NBC ?

    Yes, I think Lew is correct. I'm almost positive it was Melbourne.

    It was recorded during the Melbourne leg of their world tour, which was recorded on the 14th, 15th and 17th of November 2004. The actual concert was also about three hours.

    (Also, saw some specs that say DVD will also be DTS 5.1)

    Altho the 5.1 mix was decent via my cable providor, I had no issue with hearing the solos on Hotel California.

    My sytem had no issues with the horns overpowering the guitar or vocals in that song.

    Didn't listen/watch much else of it yet as I am only a fan of a couple of songs.

    They are def. one of if not the tightest live band in existence. Flawless sets for the most part each time out.

    I agree on the horn section comment. It seemed like a nice addition at first, then it became too much. Guess I'm a sucker for the classic Eagles sound.

    Parts of it maybe, but it was only maybe 3/4 of what is on the DVD. Several of the songs listed above were not shown.

    Deep Discount DVD is showing the DVD as DTS 5.1/PCM with production interviews, sound check, and backstage docs. They have a release date of 6/7 while everyone else says 6/14
