Eagles Add Dates, Locations to 2018 Tour

Have you been keeping up with previous announcements regarding Eagles tour dates for 2018? If so, you may have noticed shows in their hometown of Los Angeles were strangely absent. What was previously wrong has been righted with today’s revealing of six more dates, including two at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

The nights at the Forum will take place on Sept. 12 and 14, 2018, then they’ll play the Golden I Center in Sacramento, just four days later. Concerts in Hartford, Connecticut, Milwaukee and Cleveland are also now on the books for October. Those locations give clues as to when and where they could potentially add more dates…. with major cities like New York and Minneapolis still not announced.

June 28th: On This Day

On this day in 1975, the Eagles started a five-week run at No.1 on the US Billboard 200 album chart with One of These Nights. The project was the band’s fourth studio album and is the group’s breakthrough album.

The album produced three  Top 10 singles, “One of These Nights”, “Lyin’ Eyes”, and “Take It to the Limit”. The title track was the band’s second number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The album sold four million copies, making it 4x Certified Platinum by the RIAA. One of These Nights was nominated for Grammy Album of the Year but ultimately lost. However, “Lyin’ Eyes”, was nominated for Record of the Year, and won the Eagles’ first Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.

Vince Gill Joins The Eagles for Classic East and West Festival Shows

After the passing of Glenn Frey, The Eagles were thought to be finished. Don Henley announced that the band would return with Frey’s son, Deacon Frey,  stepping up to fill the vacancy.

Now it has been announced that the group will be adding another member when they take the stage at the Classic Esat and Classic West Festivals this year.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Vince Gill has joined the band, and will split vocal duties with Deacon on Glenn’s songs, as well as play guitar.

 

Gill has had an extraordinary career in country music and thinks his transition to rock will be easy.  “In my mind, I always thought I’d have made a good Eagle,” joked Gill. “But in a million years, I never would have seen this coming. It’s pretty surreal. I turned 60 recently, and to get to be a part of this amazing legacy of songs, that’s the greatest part of all this for me.”

Gill is nos stranger to The Eagles,  contributing to the Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles all-star country tribute record as well as Henley’s recent Cass County LP.

 

Glenn Frey’s Son to Join the Eagles

The Eagles are playing the Classic East and Classic West music festivals this summer. While the late Glenn Frey can never be replaced, his son Deacon will be joining the band in his place.

Don Henley confirmed the news during an interview on KTCK. Over the last year and a half, Henley had suggested that Deacon Frey would be part of the band, but then said he wouldn’t.

Henley admitted that he wasn’t supposed to announce anything, but decided to let the cat out of the bag. “There’s going to be an official announcement in a few days but let’s just do it here. Glenn’s son Deacon is a very talented young man, and he seems to be up for the task. He’s enthusiastic about it and he’s been working real hard on it, and he’s gonna do it with us. I think that’s appropriate.”

Henley then clarified his decision by citing “an old system both in Eastern and Western culture called the guild system, where the father is the master and the son is the apprentice. The trade, the craft, the business is handed down from father to son. I think it’s the only appropriate way to carry on. I don’t think I’d do it otherwise. Since it’s Glenn’s blood, it’s his son, I think that’s appropriate. There’ll be one more musician along for the ride too, but I’m not gonna say who that is.”

After going back and forth on what would happen with the band after Glenn Frey’s death in January of 2016, Henley explained why they have decided to pursue on.

 

“I never planned on it coming out this way, but it’s my responsibility to carry on this legacy and to keep these songs alive,” Henley told Rhyner. “Apparently people still want to hear them. I thought we were done when Glenn passed away and I said as much, but I was in a state of shock at the time. But we have gotten a lot of messages from people all over the world from people who would like to see things continue.”

The Eagles Suing the Owners of a “Hotel California” in Mexico

The Eagles have filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court against the Todo Santos hotel in Baja California Sur, Mexico.  The band says the resort is infringing on their trademarks, billing the property as the “Hotel California” without permission from the band.

Todos Sants opened as the Hotel California in 1950, before going through a number of name changes and owners. The Current owners restored the “Hotel California” name in 2001. According to numerous sources, including TripAdvisor, the hotel plays Eagles songs over the PA system, also it sells t-shirts that call the hotel “legendary” — as if to suggest that it was the inspiration for the song. They also own the website hotelcaliforniabaja.com.

The complaint reads, “Defendants lead U.S. consumers to believe that the Todos Santos Hotel is associated with the Eagles and, among other things, served as the inspiration for the lyrics in ‘Hotel California,’ which is false.” The paperwork also notes that the owners attempted to register the Hotel California name with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The Eagles’ Don Henley has always insisted that the lyrics were not about an actual hotel, but rather a metaphor. “It’s basically a song about the dark underbelly of the American dream and about excess in America, which is something we knew a lot about”.
