Eagles Announce New 2017 Tour Dates
Reinvigorated with an expanded lineup following the passing of co-founder Glenn Frey, the Eagles have started building out a new tour calendar in the wake of their sets at the Classic East and West festivals.
As previously reported, 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’s now being billed — “Don Henley, Joe Walsh & Timothy B. Schmit, with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey” — it seems likely that neither Gill nor the younger Frey are fully tenured members, and are instead being hired for however long this iteration of the Eagles lasts.
In the short term, that adds up to a tour that’s being dubbed “An Evening with the Eagles,” which begins Oct. 17 in Greensboro, North Carolina. Three days later, the band moves on to Atlanta; further dates follow in Louisville and Detroit. A complete list of currently announced concerts follows below.
Tickets for the “Evening with the Eagles” dates are set to go on sale to the general public Aug. 19 at 10AM local time through the Live Nation website. American Express account holders, however, get an early shot through a pre-sale that begins Aug. 15 — also at 10AM local time — and runs through 10PM Aug. 18. VIP packages are also available for the shows; check the band’s website for complete ticketing information.
