The Florida Theatre is pleased to announce “The Eagles – Their Greatest Hits performed by Classic Albums Live” and will be in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 8 p.m.Classic Albums Live takes classic albums and recreates them live, on stage - note for note, cut for cut. Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live has become the ultimate destination for music lovers wanting to hear the greatest albums performed live without all the gimmickry and cheesy impersonations. Relying only on the music, using what Martin refers to as 'the world's best musicians,' Classic Albums Live has defined itself as a mainstay in Performing Arts Centers across North America.
Martin shares some behind-the-scenes insight into Classic Albums Live’s performance of Eagles – Greatest Hits: “The Eagles sold more albums than anyone else. Think of that. Picture what 50 million albums stacked up looks like. Wow. I bought this album on 8-track. Then later on vinyl. Then I owned it on cassette. Then, dammit, I bought the CD. I stopped there and dragged the songs from my CD to my iTunes. The voices on this album are complex. The harmonies and lush detail take attention to detail and a trained ear. We’ve got it. Hearing “Take it to the Limit” performed live is a moving experience. “Best of My Love” makes you look differently at your partner – more appreciatively. And “One of These Nights” grooves. The Eagles are America’s greatest band. We’ve grown up alongside their music. We’re going to pay this album the respect it deserves and perform it note for note – cut for cut.”
