A Perfect Day

The Eagles in action at the O2 Arena

Easter Sunday was a terrific day.

First of all in the morning Annie and I performed a short piece of drama at Church which seemed to be well received.

Early afternoon was time to sit in front of the TV and watch my beloved Manchester United beat the old enemy Liverpool 3-0 to go five points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Then it was a drive down to London for the evening to watch The Eagles concert at the O2 Arena along with another 20,000 Eagles fans.

And we found ourselves in a block of seats occupied by some Manchester United fans!

Due to public demand The Eagles have added two additional dates to the UK launch of their world tour which means 120,000 fans will see them in the O2 Arena in six concerts. Not bad for four old rockers. The 3 hour concert was absolutely brilliant and getting home for bed at 1.30 am ended a perfect day.

Thank you again God!

It's astonishing to me that a group with the ongoing popularity of the Eagles would play so long—but perhaps that's a part of the reason they continue to get such reactions from their live shows. (Which I haven't been to yet, even after 35 years as a fan!)

Hi Joel - I've now seen The Eagles twice in the last two years in Birmingham and now London. They are truly amazing. So much talent between all four main characters, Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Timothy Schmidt and Joe Walsh. There are so incredibly versatile both vocally and instrumentally. I am sure they are getting better with age! Like you I have been a fan since way back and until two years ago I had not seen them perform live either. You must see them – that’s an order my friend :- )

PS Joel - we have a well used saying over here in soccer.

'Form is temporary - class is permanent'

That sums up The Eagles nicely for me.

Heh; I've said the same thing about fashion and style (not that anyone would confuse either word with me!)

I'll pass your instructions along to Sue so she knows to allocate funds next time the boys are in town!
