After successful Classic East and West Festival appearances, the Eagles have opted to take their latest iteration of the band back out on the road.
As previously reported on multiple outlets Glenn Frey’s son Deacon is now part of the lineup, which has also been joined by veteran country artist Vince Gill.
Judging by the way the band is now referring to themselves in marketing materials (“Don Henley, Joe Walsh & Timothy B. Schmit, with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey”), it seems likely that neither Gill, or Deacon Frey are fully tenured members, and are instead being hired for however long this iteration of the Eagles lasts.
What does that mean? It means that the Eagles have a short term plan, but are not communicating if they have a long-term vision or not.
This current tour, dubbed “An Evening with the Eagles,” begins Oct. 17 in Greensboro, North Carolina. Three days later, the band moves on to Atlanta; further dates follow in Louisville and Detroit. Tickets for the “Evening with the Eagles” dates are set to go on sale Aug. 19 at 10AM. As usual with Live Nation tours, American Express account holders will get an early shot through a pre-sale that begins Aug. 15. A complete list of currently announced dates is below:
Off-Tour Show Dates
