When musicians play acoustically, audiences get to revel in music free of studio trickery and needless Wilhelm screams. Hear the singing without the ringing with this GrouponLive deal: for $35, see Glenn Frey on Saturday, November 10, at 8 p.m. (a $69.50 value) at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater. Seating will be in rows EE–LL. Doors open one hour before each performance.
Ruth Eckerd Hall treats music fans to tender melodies with a performance by an award-winning artist. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Glenn Frey (November 10), who cemented himself into music legendry as a guitarist and singer for the Eagles, captivates listeners with shimmering string-picking and a soaring voice best remembered in tunes such as "Tequila Sunrise" and "Hotel California." In his Saturday set, Frey sends fans into paroxysms of bubbly delight with vintage Eagles hits, favorites from his solo career, and quarters pulled from behind each audience member’s ear. Selections from Frey’s most recent solo album, After Hours, show off his softer side, caressing ears with cocktail-lounge classics given life by his "unexpectedly perfect crooning," as described by the San Diego Reader.
