Heaven Heats Up Tour
The Lowry Theatre, Manchester
Reviewed by Debbie Tasker
This is a must for fans of the American country rock band The Eagles. Five fantastic middle aged musicians transport you back in time playing all their classic tracks including Take It Easy, Lyin Eyes, Life in the Fast Lane, New Kid in Town, Desperado the ever popular Hotel California and my all-time favourite, Take It To The Limit amongst other brilliant Eagles songs.
With perfect pitch these accomplished musicians and singers are also very versatile playing the stage with ease and moving around instruments to show exactly how talented they all are.
Long road to Eden was the stand out performance it definitely had the wow factor.
A great gig and I would say the Illegal Eagles could very well be the best tribute band around! They were playing to a half full theatre and it did retract a little from the atmosphere, people didn't seem to want to get into the swing of things, and it felt like they were flogging a dead horse as the saying goes at times, but rest assured this is well worth going to see and me and my friend had a blast! (from the past).
We were up on our feet for the closing numbers couldn't have asked for a better show.
