Eagles Announce Special 'Hotel California' Shows In Las Vegas
Today the GRAMMY-winning rock group the Eagles announced they will be performing their classic album Hotel California during two nights in Las Vegas on Sept. 27–28. The special shows will be the first time the band has played the album in full live and will be their only dates in North America for 2019.
The announcement on the group's site says some of the songs have not been performed live since their original Hotel California tour in the '70s. They will also be pulling tracks from their extensive catalog of jams for "an additional set of the band's greatest hits" during the two shows at the MGM Grand's Garden Arena.
Eagles members Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit will perform with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey, the son of late founding member Glenn Frey. The latter two joined the touring lineup in 2017, following Glenn's passing in 2016, and will also be joining the band for their 2019 European tour dates.
The Los Angeles rock group released their fifth studio album, Hotel California, in December 1976. The album's singles "Hotel California" and "New Kid In Town" earned the group two No. 1 hits and two GRAMMY wins; at the 20th GRAMMY Awards the former won Record Of The Year and the latter won Best Arrangement For Voices. The album, which was nominated for Album Of The Year, remains third best-selling album in the U.S. ever.
Tickets for the two Vegas shows go on sale Fri. April 12 at 10 a.m. PST, with a pre-sale beginning Mon. April 8; find more ticket info here.
