What an incredible night under the roof or 'The Greenhouse' as Don Henley dubbed it. Quintessential American rock band Eagles played hit after hit to a crowd of over 33,000.

Beautiful harmonies, mind-blowing guitar solos and Joe Walsh's intense facial expressions were only a handful of the memorable moments from Saturday's concert at Forsyth Barr Stadium. The Eagles did not disappoint, fans were treated to so many classic tunes, kicking off the set list with Seven Bridges RoadTake It Easy, One of These Nights, Take it to the Limit and Tequila Sunrise

Deacon Frey, the son of the late Eagles legend, Glenn Frey added a new dimension to the band by being the youngest member by approximately four decades. Frey sang Peaceful Easy Feeling as sparkling stars floated around on the two huge screens that framed the stage. What a wonderful way to continue on his father's legacy. The crowd were up on their feet for Heartache Tonight and the one we'd all been waiting for - Hotel California. 

The entire performance was flawless and when the lights came on at the end, concert goers were still in their seats, wondering if it was really over.

Before the Eagles took the stage, Marlon Williams performed and was welcomed by a nearly full Stadium. Williams said it was an honour to open for the Eagles. Popular songs from Williams' set included Come to Me, Dark Child and Make Way for Love.
