It was great to hear Glen Frey sing not only Eagles songs, but also songs by other artists he has long admired such as Brian Wilson and Randy Newman. I especially liked his cover of Bobby Troup's 'Get Your Kicks on Route 66.'

I don't really remember much, I was moshing and must have been hit in the head.

One of my favorite places to see a show in L.A.
Even though the theatre seats more than 2,500, Glenn Frey turned it into his own private living room for the evening to showcase his new "After Hours" album, plus some of his classics. Always helps...continued

Glenn's voice was fantastic. The band was great. The wiltern is not the best venue if your seats are towards the back of the orchestra. We were in Floor 4 and all the rows are on the same level, not slightly above the previous in most theaters....continued

The concert was a lot of fun. However, if you want to enjoy a concert pick any venue other than the Wiltern. The seats are just banquet hall seats tied together, to close for comfort. Made for a very uncomfortable night. Further, the urgency...continued

What a wonderful ecclectic performance. Glen is very gracious in the way he validates those who have and do work with him. Even though we were way up the back it seemed very personal. I known that the string orchestra fron Santa Monica High will...continued

Sooner or later, most of the great successes of the Age of Rock have to put on a slate-gray suit, a white shirt and dark tie and behave like the well-heeled gentlemen they have long since become. This is mostly for the better, but it does mean...continued

This was an absolutely GREAT SHOW! I wish he was doing another one we would go in a heartbeat. It was a great family night out! Glenn, I can't begin to count how many times i've seen you and the Eagles, time to give the ex-wife a rest! By the...continued

Fabulous concert! New stuff was great - can't wait to get the album. Old stuff wonderful. Would give this 5 stars if it weren't for the venue and the audience. I could have done without the rude, drunk people sitting around us. Questioning...continued

The show was excellent. Glenn is a great showman. Loved the music--some Eagles tunes and some lovely, old standards from his After Hours album.

The seats were pretty awful. Last row of the mezzanine--wall behind us--far from the stage. And...continued

When he did the old Eagles music, it rocked, but way too much 40's music was putting us all to sleep.

Love the Wiltern, even the cheap mezzanine seats have a good view unless some behemoth sits in front of you. I had modest expectations of Glenn Frey -of course I love the Eagles and his 80's songs so I was expecting to hear both. When he did play...continued

sang old songs that were great IMO when sung by the original performer. Not great performed by Glenn Frey. Didn't sing near enough of his own original work.

Fun when he played old Eagles hits, not so enjoyable when he played his new music, his voice sounded a little weak.

First - the concert itself. Wonderful musicianship and the band managed to make the Eagles' songs sound just like the Eagles. I loved the new arrangement of The Heat Is On - very jazzy. As far as the new standards songs; again, the...continued

Great sound. Terrific energy. I hadn't been to the Wiltern in years, and it's such a good place for a concert. Glenn was in fine voice and had an amazing band with him. The orchestra was outstanding.

If you can find out when the "real" start time is, do. Our tickets said 7:30 p.m., but as soon as we got there, the ushers told everyone we had until 8:15, so buy more liquor. Guess they think the audience is so graying that we need an extra 45...continued
