The songs and voices of Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit, Glenn Frey, Bernie Leadon, Randy Meisner and Don Felder were lovingly recreated and performed to a sold out audience.

And didn’t they love every single minute of an outstanding two-hour show dedicated to the music of The Eagles.

The six-piece Illegal Eagles are the world’s official number one Eagles tribute acts and it was a nostalgic evening which contained 19 of their famous songs from “Take It Easy” to “Desperado”, “How Long” to “Lyin’ Eyes”, “New Kid in Town’ to “Love Will Keep Us Alive” and “Life In The Fast Lane” to their finale tune the iconic “Hotel California”.

The phenomenal group of musicians have been touring for over two decades and remain true fanatics of the famous band and their longevity and continued international acclaim are due in no small part to their extraordinary mastery of the band’s distinctive sound.

Mike Baker, Garreth Hicklin, Trev Newnham, Christian Phillips, Greg Webb and Tony Kiley take a bow … it was an extraordinary concert which is to be repeated tonight.

The return of Luke Norris, after injury, has given Colchester United boss John McGreal a pleasant selection headache looking towards this weekend’s long trek up to Cumbria.

Ipswich Town boss Paul Lambert is keen to add some Championship experience to his relegation-battling squad as soon as possible in January. In part one of this feature, STUART WATSON looks at some midfielders who fit the bill.

A village road is to be closed for the majority of a day so highways workers can carry out emergency repairs to the carriageway.
