The Eagles announce a full-album ‘Hotel California’ tour
LOS ANGELES — The Eagles are embarking on a nationwide tour in 2020 where they’ll play the entire track list of “Hotel California” from beginning to end.
The tour will kick off in Atlanta in February, and then the iconic rock group will hit New York, Dallas, Houston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The tour will not come to Denver.
Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit will be joined by Deacon Frey, the son of the late Eagles founding member Glenn Frey.
Country legend Vince Gill will also be part of the group, along with a live orchestra and choir.
If hearing the whole album live wasn’t already good enough, the group will also be featuring an additional set of the band’s greatest hits.
“Hotel California,” released in 1976, has exceeded 26 million sales and streams, and holds the record as the No. 3 best-selling album of all time, according to the Recording Industry Association of America.
“Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975,” their other album released in the same year, holds the top spot as the No. 1 best-selling album of all time.
The rock legends have stood the test of time, ringing in five No. 1 singles, four No. 1 albums, and 14 Top 40 hits, eventually being declared one of the 100 Greatest Artists by “Rolling Stone.”
Tour tickets go on sale beginning Oct. 18 at 10 a.m.
