Eagles get cheers

The Eagles (the band) really knew how to work the crowd at the Wachovia Center.

Eagles get cheers

After 35 years, The Eagles are smart about playing to a Philly crowd.

During Tuesday's concert at the Wachovia Center, Joe Walsh popped on a Phillies cap for "In the City," which included video scenes of the city of Philadelphia and Brad Lidge throwing the final out in the World Series, the on-field celebration shots and the parade. And the crowd went wild.

The band also announced midway through the opening set that a portion of the proceeds from the night would be going to the FOP Memorial Scholarship Fund to benefit the families of our fallen police officer, and in a show of emotion before dedicating a song to the Philadellphia Police Department, they read the names of the five officers who died this year.
