Happy 64th birthday, Joe Walsh!

Chicago Stadium

Chicago Stadium

October 22, 1979 — Chicago, IL My fellow boot camp sailors Mike Dunning and Mike Seidler and I traveled from the Great Lakes Naval Recruit Training Center to Chicago to listen to the Eagles. We wore our dress blues (“crackerjacks”), with little decoration, as we were pretty raw recruits. The concert was amazing; we had a balcony view nearly over the stage. I don’t recall a lot of details of the venue, but the Internet sure does!. Here’s the setlist [Update: see below], the locale, details of Chicago Stadium, now demolished, and more links.

Update: the setlist disappears from the Eagles fan site, but fortunately, the Internet Archive Wayback Machine remembers;
