Felder and his band were superb both musically and vocally...his vocals were spot on and harmonies were tight. His performance was worth the price of admission. Styx was outstanding in all categories with a really high energy opening and a booming bass beat throughout. Vocals were terrific and musically thr performance was very tight...really good show. Reo was a huge disappointment and played way too long...wish they had given more of their time to Felder and Styx.

I went to the Styx/REO concert anticipating a great show and Don Felder and Styx did not disappoint. I had no expectations for Felder; I just thought it would be a set I’d have to listen to before the real talent came on stage. I was pleasantly surprised, however, with the vocals (Seven Bridges Road’s harmonies were masterful) and the guitars, particular on “Hotel California”. It was fun to sing with other Eagles’ fans to the many Eagles hits such as “Take it Easy” and “Heartache Tonight”. I would recommend seeing Felder alone. Styx was awesome; Tommy Shaw can still bring it and the lead vocalists’ vocals and pianos/keyboards were perfection. I could have listened to them for another hour or more, especially since REO sucked. Poor acoustics, bad vocals and a performance that the band just dialed in. No way they should have been headliner. All in all, great concert and well worth my $40.

I agree with the person's review that said DonFelder AND STYX were good. Really good. REO made me sad. Out of tune ... out of key ... maybe out of time..I love REO...however...

Don Felder's vocals were crisp and clean and his presentation of Eagle's songs was spot on. Of course it was great to see him play leads on all those great songs. REO was a disappointment. Muddy sound and weak vocals. Not the REO from not so long ago. Styx was awesome! Tommy Shaw's vocals were spot on and absolutely powerful. Showmanship and quality musicianship all around. New tune Radio Silence very enjoyable. A great live band! My first concert at Van Andel. Great venue for a concert.

Wet night, but weather cleared up for the show overall. Don Felder sounded really good, played the best Eagles tunes all night. Well worth the price of admission just for his set. REO Speedwagon just needs to retire and give it up. Terrible vocal performance, backed by a band that was simply going through the motions. Almost painful to watch the singer trying to keep a tune, and find the right notes. Styx sounded excellent, and played the best songs from their long career. Band started playing late, and had a short set due to the time cutoff of the venue. Overall, it was a really good concert. Better weather would have made it a much more pleasant experience, but no one can control mother nature. Don Felder and Styx are highly recommended. REO Speedwagon I would not recommend, even for a county fair show.
