The Classic Albums Live
Performing The Eagles Greatest Hits
The Classic Albums Live performing The Eagles Greatest Hits on Friday, February 12 at 8 pm will now be held at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Ticket holders will be notified by email of their relocated seats.
With its complex vocals and defining harmonies, the Eagles’ chart-topping album “Their Greatest Hits” became the first album ever certified platinum. Over 40 years after its release, the album is now one of the most influential albums in music history with hits such as “Take it Easy,” “Witchy Woman” and “Desperado.”
Held in the summer of 1967 on Max Yasgur’s farm in New York, Woodstock was billed as three days of peace and music. The concert attracted an audience of more than 400,000 people and 32 artists performing outdoors despite sporadic rain. Classic Albums Live will recreate “The Music of Woodstock,” a concert that is regarded as a pivotal moment in music history as well as a defining event for the generation, performing songs made famous by the Who, Joe Cocker and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, among others.

Released in 1967, The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” was the album that defined the band as being in it for the long game, resulting in the No. 1 position in Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Classic Albums Live will deliver a performance that brings 50 years of Beatles’ excellence to thousands of people who grew up alongside this masterpiece, with hit songs such as “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” “With a Little Help from My Friends” and “Lovely Rita.”
Classic Albums Live will treat audiences to AC/DC’s best-selling album “Back in Black” in its entirety. The album ranks at No. 73 on Rolling Stone’s greatest-albums list, featuring hits like “You Shook Me All Night Long,” “Hells Bells” and “Back In Black.”
Like a symphony orchestra performing the works of Mozart, Classic Albums Live forgoes the gimmickry of costumes and impersonations, putting the music first. These world-class musicians tackle iconic music, concentrating solely on re-creating it as you remember it from the original recording. The attention to detail is staggering — every sound from the album is re-created live on stage by world-class musicians assembled for each album presentation.
