Following the success of their recent Classic West and East gigs, The Eagles have announced that they will once again be hitting the road this coming October for a series of four North American concerts going under the banner ‘An Evening With The Eagles.’
Like their Classic shows with Fleetwood Mac in Los Angeles and New York and Seattle, country singer Vince Gill and guitarist Deacon Frey, son of the late Glenn Frey, will be joining core Eagles’ Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit.
The latest string of arena dates begins on 17 October in Greensboro, North Carolina and goes on to hit Atlanta and Louisville before concluding 27 October at Detroit’s new Little Caesars Arena. Tickets go on sale August 19th at 10am local time at Live Nation. At present, it is unclear as to whether the band will be adding dates to this brief run of shows.
Rolling Stone recently talked with Joe Walsh about the band’s first shows since Glenn Frey’s 2015 death and The Eagles’ new line-up.
“We’ve got some new blood. We all know the songs pretty good, but we just have to run the drill,” the guitarist said. “It’s like being an athlete and doing the reps to get into shape. The new guys [Deacon Frey and Gill] have to get to the point where it’s automatic or it’s transparent.”
Walsh added that the Eagles’ future live performances will likely resemble smaller-scale jaunts as opposed to major tours. “I don’t think we’ll ever tour again, but I think we’ll do six shows a year, something like that,” he said.
