At another, they are moody and brooding. Yet in third moment, the band can toggle between mysterious and warm.

1. Melbourne, Australia (2004)

This 2004 live show from Melbourne, Australia’s Rod Laver Arena features the band during their second phase of existence. Founded in 1971 the Eagles stuck together until 1980 before going on hiatus. They came back in 1994 and continued until 2016 only to reconnect again in 2017. This concert from that second phase showcases the band performing some of its biggest hits, including, “Hotel California.” Check it out here below.

2. London (2022)

This show from London, England’s Hyde Park brings the modern day version of the band to audiences. And the fan-shot concert is a gem amongst videos of the band (as there simply just aren’t many out there).
