On Thursday night The Eagles rained rock on to Detroit. According to ultimateclassicrock.com the Eagles gave tribute to Detroit native and Eagles cofounder, Glenn Frey. The Eagles made a stop during their Hotel California Tour at Little Caesar Arena on Thursday, March 24th.

And during their three hour show, the members paid tribute to Glenn, who passed away in January of 2016. Don Henley, who started the band with Glenn back in 1971, told the crowd before “Take It to the Limit” that, “It’s always a little bittersweet to come play here, but we are forever connected with you. We miss our founder, but his legacy is going to live on in every song we play for you.”Before the night’s last song “Best of Love”, Henley addressed the crowd again, “Back in 1974, Glenn and J.D. Souther started writing this next song and were kind enough to bring me in on it. I want you to sing along. I’m gonna sing this for Glenn.”
