“The show is gathering of The Eagles fans and we’re just the ones holding the instruments.”

That’s the belief of The Eagles Show lead singer Paul McGovern.

Mr McGovern and his fellow bandmates will perform a tribute to the legendary rock band at Wests League Club on Friday, June 29.

“The Eagles had albums full of fantastic songs that deserve to be played live,” he said.

The show will feature the band’s biggest hits including Hotel California, Best of My Love, Boys of Summer and more.

Mr McGovern said the band also performed some of Don Henley’s solo work.

“He has a song called Talking to the Moon that he only performs when he’s in Texas so we do a cover of that,” he said.

The avid singer said he enjoyed performing for Macarthur crowds.

“We do a lot of regional work and the great thing about Wests Leagues Club is that they were the ones who threw us a lifeline when we were first starting out,” Mr McGovern said. “We love performing at Wests. People are always so down to Earth and we love the unpretentious attitudes of the audiences.

“They are always so honest too – they tell you when they like something and they will certainly let you know when they don’t like something.”

Mr McGovern said their gig was always full of fun.

“We like to give people a bit of a laugh,” he said.

“It’s 80 per cent music and 20 per cent stand-up comedy but we don’t script anything because we want each show to be different because each audience is different.”

Mr McGovern encouraged people to come along to the show.

“It’s a good night out and a great way to take your mind off of the bad things that might’ve happened in your day,” he said.

“There is something for everyone and we usually have people from the ages of about 18 to 80 coming to our show.

“The Eagles made music that really touches people.”

Tickets are $20 for members or $23 for visitors. The show will commence at 8pm.
