Eagles open their tour with tributes to Jimmy Buffett and Randy Meisner

The opening night of the Eagles The Long Goodbye Tour at Madison Square Garden in New York City saw the group saying goodbye to their friend Jimmy Buffett.

They did two Buffett songs for the very first time -- "Come Monday" and "Fins." Don Henley told the audience that "We always liked to laugh and say we survived the '70s together." And Joe Walsh added, "Jimmy and I got thrown out of some of the finest hotels in the world."

The 23 song set also saw Henley mention the recent passing of original Eagle Randy Meisner, saying "it's been a rough six weeks for us." The band dedicated their performance of "Take It to the Limit" to Meisner.

The Long Goodbye Tour continues with another show at the Garden tonight (Friday) and Boston on Monday.
