OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — After taking a short rest stop during the pandemic, the Eagles are back in the fast lane and are making a stop at the CHI Health Center.

On Tuesday night, fans were eager to hear all the songs they know and love like "Hotel California," "Take It to the Limit," "Witchy Woman," and "Lying Eyes."

But there were a few new house rules in place at the Hotel California tour.

At the band’s request, the CHI Health Center asked that all concert-goers show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test taken 24-48 hours before the doors open.

“When they asked for certain precautions to be in place, we knew it was incumbent upon us to try to make those things happen," said Kristyna Engdahl, communication director for MECA which oversees CHI Health Center.

Fans said it was a small inconvenience to navigate in order to see one of the greatest bands of all time.

“I think it’s wonderful," said Connie Turner, a fan who traveled to Omaha for the concert. "It’s great without masks. If we can prove what they need, it’s great.”

Lorrie Ott said these precautions would give her a peaceful easy feeling as she enjoyed the music.

“I travel a lot; I want to go out and have fun," Ott said. "I’m probably going against the grain, but I’m glad for the requirements.”

This is the first time CHI is hosting a concert where its client – The Eagles – has asked for proof of vaccination as a requirement to attend the concert.
