What You'll Get
Like the great bird of prey for which they're named, the band members of The Eagles are American icons and have been illegal to hunt since 1972. Marvel at a renewed species with this GrouponLive deal to see Glenn Frey at The Wiltern. For $30, you get one ticket for reserved seating in the mezzanine on Saturday, May 26, at 7 p.m. (up to a $60.50 value, including all fees). Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
At any given twist of a radio dial in America, Glenn Frey’s instantly recognizable voice comes pouring out of the speakers. Frey was a founding member of country-rock giants The Eagles, scribing and singing lead vocals on hits such as “Take It Easy,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” and “Already Gone.” Their career trajectory led to six Grammys, an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and enough platinum records to rebuild Zeus’s catalytic converter. When the band molted in 1980, Frey continued his streak with sultry, saxy solo smashes such as “The Heat is On” and “You Belong to the City.” During the After Hours tour, named for his freshly pressed sixth solo album, he departs from what he calls his “guitar voice,” opting instead for a clean, polished tenor as he belts his favorite love songs from the 1940s to the present. The singer breathes new life into classics such as the tumbleweeding “Route 66” and Brian Wilson’s baroquely melancholic “Caroline, No” while also dishing prime cuts from The Eagles' greatest steaks.
Frey’s gilded croon and ageless song choices flow through the striking art-deco details of The Wiltern. Originally built in 1931 as a vaudeville house, the historic venue pulsates with live sounds while evoking memories of Hollywood’s golden age. As they make their way in, guests pause to gawk at the blue-green, terra-cotta-covered 12-story tower of the adjoining Pellissier Building or to catch vitamin D emanating from the ornate sunburst ceilings.
