The Kem Shriners are presenting a concert, “Takin’ It To The Limit: An Eagles Tribute,” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, at the Masonic Center, 423 Bruce Ave. in Grand Forks.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

The Fabulous Armadillos and Collective Unconscious will perform music by the Eagles rock band.

Tickets, $20 for upper-level seating and $30 for lower-level seating, are available at Hugo’s stores in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks.

Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Kem Shrine organization, said Ryan Scott, the Kem Shriners chief of staff.


“This is the first big concert in the auditorium we’ve ever had,” Scott said. “We’re excited to see how a concert works” in the auditorium, which can accommodate 650 audience members.

One of the most successful musical acts of the 1970s, the Grammy Award-winning Eagles produced six No. 1 albums and received five American Music Awards. The group is known for hits such as “Hotel California,” “Desperado,” “I Can’t Tell You Why,” “Take It Easy,” “Witchy Woman” and “One of These Nights.”

The nine-member Fabulous Armadillos rock group, based in St. Cloud, Minn., is known for authentic recreations of songs from many musical genres, from country to Motown to heavy metal to ‘70s soft rock. In addition to the Eagles show, the group tours a tribute show themed “What’s Going On? -- Songs From The Vietnam War Era.”

Scott said other similar concerts may be planned in the future at the Masonic Center.

“We’ll have to see how (Saturday’s concert) works and we’ll assess afterwards,” he said. “We’re hoping everybody comes out, and we fill the auditorium.”
