I will say, I saw The Eagles last summer, last minute up in the nose bleeds at the Garden in Boston. My whole section was sitting the entire time. I was ok with that, I just wanted to see them. I have to admit though, I was HORRIFIED to see the entire floor sitting for the entire night. They got up for the last few. At that moment, I was very glad to be a FM fan. If you buy a ticket in the first couple rows, its pretty understood that you need to stand.
When we saw the Eagles, the last tour with Glenn Frey, they announced at the start of the show that everyone on the floor stay seated. They said something like "we're all old and no one wants to stand for a full concert." They then invited anyone who wanted to, to stand for the last 2 songs. We were row 9, and if someone got up, security was over in a flash to tell them to sit. Everyone complied.

I just got home from seeing FM in Hartford. I was 11th row center and stood for the whole show as did everyone in front of me for the entire show.

There was a review for two other FM concerts that talked about baby boomers and millennials going at it over the standing/sitting debate. I saw the same thing happen when I saw FM in 2014. Two young couples was up dancing and the older couple behind them started screaming and cursing at them to sit down. It almost turned into a physical fight until security stepped in. I'm personally used to being at concerts where everyone is standing up, but I don't mind staying seated if most of the section is. With that said, I agree with the poster who said Bill O' Reilly is a douche. That self-righteous hypocrite is always ranting and turning everything into a political debate.

Yes. I have been like this since I was teen. I remember wanting everyone to sit down at Prince concerts. BTW, when I first saw Prince, he was the opening act for Rick James.
