Rock legends The Eagles helped re-open Los Angeles’ fabled Forum venue on Wednesday night with a hits set featuring original guitarist Bernie Leadon.

The group returned to the concert mecca following a $100 million makeover, and singer Glenn Frey was thrilled to be part of the relaunch.

Taking a moment during the band’s 28-song set that was arranged chronologically, he told fans, “This is going to become the premier large venue”, adding, “It’s about the only facelift I care for in Hollywood.”

The Eagles will play a six-night residency at the Forum.

A massive vinyl replica of the group’s “Hotel California” album sits atop the new-look Forum.
