Shown here on a day off before their first March 13, Beijing show, additionally the Eagles also performed in Shanghai on March 9th, and were warmly received by a crowd of 6,000.
“The people, here, have been very warm and welcoming,” said Eagles co-founder Don Henley. “They all sing along with ‘Hotel California’ and ‘Desperado.’ It’s amazing. We’re looking forward to coming back again in the future.”
