The Eagles have rolled out their initial 2022 North American tour dates. As it stands now, the band will kick off the year on February 19th at Savanna, Georgia’s Enmarket Arena and play through May 19th when the trek wraps on May 19th in Austin, Texas at Moody Center ATX. Along the way, the group will hit Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina; Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, and Tampa, Florida; along with Atlanta, Georgia.
The band’s ongoing Hotel California shows feature an accompanying orchestra and choir, and kick off with the classic album. The band goes on to play a further 23 tunes — including a few dips into both Don Henley and Joe Walsh‘s solo catalogues.
In addition to Henley and Walsh, the Eagles also feature 43-year-veteran Timothy B. Schmit — along with the late-Glenn Frey‘s 28-year-old son Deacon Frey, as well as country legend Vince Gill.
Hotel California is now the third best-selling album of all time, having been certified 26-times Platinum by the RIAA for sales and streams of more than 26 million copies.
Back in 2015, Don Henley was interviewed by old friend Billy Joel at Manhattan’s 92nd Street Y, and spoke candidly about how and where the Eagles fit into his life these days: “The Eagles is just a part of me. Glenn (Frey) and I started that band back in 1971 and we did have a little hiatus; y’know, we parted company for 14 years — and then in 1994 realized actually that there was still a demand for our services — and so, we got back together. And it hasn’t always been smooth sailing, but as we’ve gotten older and more mature, and as we’ve all gotten married and had children, y’know, that will have a tempering effect on your personality.”
