Fabulous Armadillos Add A Second Eagles Tribute Show This Fall
Oh yes, The Eagles. Honestly, they’re one of those bands that everyone likes. I don’t know if I’ve ever heard anyone say “I don’t like The Eagles.” It’s kind of like the Vikings winning the Super Bowl – it just doesn’t happen (insert sarcastic laugh here.) But really, what’s not to like?
Everything from Don Henley’s cool, airy voice and clever lyricism to Joe Walsh’s blistering guitar solos is pretty spot on. Despite “Hotel California” being the most over-played song of all time (next to maybe “Free Bird” or “Stairway To Heaven”) there are still tons of Eagles tunes I absolutely love – “Witchy Woman” “One Of These Nights” and “Tequila Sunrise” to name a few.
If for some reason you weren’t able to attend The Eagles concert at Target Field a couple of months ago then a cool alternative you can check out to see all those classic tunes live is “Takin’ It To The Limit.” It’s an Eagles tribute show taking place in St. Michael at the Le Musique Room.
The band performing will be The Fabulous Armadillos, which just so happens to be my favorite local band. I’ve seen their Pink Floyd tribute twice and they never cease to amaze me. A friend of mine actually went to their Eagles tribute show last year, and he swears it’s the best concert he’s ever seen.
Needless to say I’m excited to see this show. They originally had only scheduled one show at The Le Musique Room (St. Michael) on September 25th, but recently added a second date for the following evening on the 26th. Both shows start at 7:30 pm and tickets are available online now for $36.
