Eagles for the first time in the Czech Republic: three hours with a brilliant vocal perfection
It was to force some dream of youth, experience the Eagles concert. A band that played on Monday to break three hours, and filled it in abundance. Eagles first spoke in the Czech Republic and offer fans an unforgettable experience perfect decorated.
Folkrock archaic sound, which is zhoupnul and the country, built by Eagles in the seventies is also a musical past. However, the band presented him with a taste and freshness, that man must have given the right sentence, repeating: music is just good and bad, do not have time to play a role.
It however acknowledged that in the Czech Republic, which had not yet, Eagles are not so large as posluchačské base metal legends or Queen. Prague O2 Arena was full to about half the crowd was focused in the area under the stage. But when was the allowances, the audience tried to conceal their numerical weakness. Sometimes dorovnávalo this handicap tleskáním and dupáním. Have been gratifying and practical habits Eagles. The band began as were on the ticket, then in twenty hours, and gave the man a feeling that came to social events.
Four Eagles, veterans Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, the nine accompanying musicians opposed conservative suits or white shirts and tie - to when the jackets off. The backs have a projection screen in the shape of půloblouku that image while decently illustrated songs.
Megahit Hotel California, after which posluchačka behind me said, "And now we can go home," who heard after the initial run, illustrated look at the palm trees and California belfry. In krevnaté track Funk 49 begin running funny animation projection in the spirit of beatlesovské yellow submarine. Waiting In The Weed, song of the last dvojdesky Long Road Out Of Eden, accompanied the footage on undulant grain, dusty paths and old cars. Naive, hot, lazy atmosphere of creeping California summer obviously shone iz Eagles music.
Words of perfection, even přecizelovaná, can be described as all thirty songs concert Monday. Eagles, who in the Czech Republic be inspired Zlínský AG Flek, discography are concentrated in the seventies. Then at fourteen years broke up, remind the plate Hell Freezes Over, and after years osmadvaceti published a collection of brand new tracks on dvojalbu Long Road Out Of Eden (2007).
News gave the concert start in songs How Long, I Do not Want To Hear Anymore and Guilty of the crime. Either develop a beautiful California beach Polyphonic, or the music heated guitar and gathered bluesovější tones with overtones Honky Tonk piano. Vyhlížený song Hotel California, evoked by Czech radio, heard from nearly a plate. In the semi-sparkling sound, which was accompanied by a full concert, the drums Henley sang, while colleagues rozjížděli dramatic guitar exchanges
Who knows, if we were witnessing the last Eagles tour, which concentrated all the effects, and a perfection in music.
Followed by a trip to the seventies when the band reached the Peaceful Easy Feeling the debut album, which was easygoing country rock, actually almost Lidovky, embellished - of course - vibrant polyphonic. For smooth, velvety melodies I Can not Tell You Why, already sang mainly Timothy B. Schmit, the vocal music přehoupla to fluffy song Witch Woman.
Lyin 'Eyes was countryovka with violin and lidovkově "poskakujícím" piano, song The Boys Of Summer raised rockovější sound with delicious singing guitar including precizního, sharper frázovaného singing. To break the Eagles play in the city, the song of 1979 in which the music closer to chaos and the city that showed the possibility of supporting other groups. The game is fully involved and čtyřhlavá brass section.
News No More Walks In The Woods started the Eagles, sitting in a straight line at high stoličkách as vocal exhibition. A continued its stylish tuned excursions, to be rock měkkému No More Cloudy Days, illustrated projections of clouds, or the gentle ballad Love Will Keep Us Alive.
One of the concert was song Take It To The Limit of 1975: polyphonic zařezávaly the faster pace and sharp as a knife was next to the beauty and precision rytmičnost excel. A dramatic composition demonstrated a band in Long Road Out Of Eden, the song that reminded old, punks hated artrocku era.
With the impending conclusion of the concert as the band only odkrývala full capacity. In the song walk away with, thanks to animal guitarist Joe Walsh, rozbouřila metal music. One Of These Nights offered beegeesovsky thin vocals zneklidňované "prancer" guitar, and Dirty Laundry, it was just kick, which is the Funk 49 zklidnil in roztleskávačce Heartache Tonight. After vytleskaných allowances in the period came ballad Desperado - how else, with icing eaglovských vocals.
Who knows, if we were witnessing the last Eagles tour, which concentrated all the effects, and a perfection in music. Pinch or fatigue symptoms by the age of image veteránských Orlů zbortily. Something like that certainly not the band. Maybe because after they left the impression as if they sang the last.
