Live At The Forum ‘76 was recorded during the band’s three-night run at the Los Angeles Forum in October 1976. The show took place as the group was putting the finishing touches on Hotel California, which would be released that December. The concert recording captures some of the very first live performances of “Hotel California” and “New Kid In Town.”

During the show, the band also play hits from earlier albums with “Take It Easy” from the band’s 1972 self-titled debut; “Already Gone” from 1974’s On the Border; and the #1 title track from 1975’s One of These Nights. The concert also includes a raucous performance of “Funk #49,” a song originally recorded by Walsh’s James Gang.

The Forum concert presents a snapshot of the band right before Hotel California became a critical and commercial phenomenon. After its release, the album topped the charts for eight weeks in the U.S., featured two #1 singles (“New Kid In Town” and “Hotel California”), and won two GRAMMY Awards. Today, Hotel California has been certified 26x platinum by the RIAA and is the third best-selling US album in history and one of the best-selling albums of all time.

In today’s fractured rock landscape, the Eagles retain an appeal that transcends both generation and genre, cementing the band’s role as enduring musical icons. As the best-selling American band of the ’70s, and one of the top-selling acts of all time, the Eagles have sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, scored six #1 albums and topped the singles charts five times. The band has won six Grammy Awards, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 (in their first year of eligibility) and received the Kennedy Center Honors in 2016.
