Blimp Time Hop: The First Time Joe Walsh Rocked Maine Live
On June 28, 1981, Joe brought his There Goes the Neighborhood Tour to Portland.
It was Joe’s first album since the break-up of the Eagles and it included the fan favorite, “A Life of Illusion”, which we heard in the beginning of BLM’s A to Z.
Let's make a dump run with the "Life of Illusion" video!
He returned in September of 1983 with Stevie Nicks and again in July of 1985 on The Confessor Tour. We also remember a Joe Walsh show at OOB's Seashore Performing Arts Center in the summer of 1991 in support of Ordinary Average Guy.
Joe's most recent appearance here was at the Maine State Pier in Portland on July 28, 2016. Blimpville loves Joe Walsh! Check out this all killah, no fillah set!
Joe Walsh is currently on tour with the Eagles (making sure it rocks!), they play the Arena Birmingham in the UK tonight. The only scheduled US shows are in Las Vegas this September and October.
After a show with the Eagles this past Sunday night in London at Wembley Stadium, Joe posted this photo with Brian Johnson on Instagram. We love the idea of these two making a record together! The caption indicates that possibility. Nice!
