Eagles TV bio depicts long, turbulent history

Friday, February 15, 2013by  Jon Osterberg

They’re the band that quit after the thrill was gone, then later reformed for the long run.
   A new Showtime documentary captures it all in “History of the Eagles,” about the Los Angeles band that ruled the airwaves from 1972 until their 1980 breakup, then reunited in 1994 and remain a touring force today.
   The Eagles performed in Washington and Oregon several times over the years, ranging from an April 1972 Spokane Coliseum show to a 1974 “Catch a Rising Star” concert at the Paramount Theater in Seattle that cost just $2 per ticket, to The Gorge, to Portland’s Rose Garden, and to a May 2010 KeyArena show on the “Assisted Living Tour” where tickets cost $250 and up. Read about the new documentary, and revisit Eagles' last Seattle concert.
