L.A.'s own Eagles will rule the roost by Richard Cromelin L.A. Times
When the Eagles play their first L.A.-area concert in five years on Wednesday at the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, they'll be heading into Southern California concert history.
The performance kicks off a six-week, 10-concert blitz at the Pond and downtown L.A.'s Staples Center, with total attendance expected to surpass 180,000, especially if more shows are added, as has been rumored.
That would put the L.A.-based Eagles ahead of Neil Diamond, whose 10-show run at the Forum in 1989 has stood as the biggest arena engagement in the region for a decade and a half, with attendance of about 180,000. (The highest total for any engagement was the 330,000 for Bruce Springsteen's four nights at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in 1985.)
Is anyone going to any of these shows? I'm going tonight, haven't seen them since the Rose Bowl show a few years back, can't wait!
