13 Comments

Eagles are planning massive performances of their album "Hotel California" during their 2020 tour.

Performances of the band's 1976 album will include a 46-piece orchestra and a 22-voice choir. Organizers announced Tuesday that in total, 77 musicians are expected to be onstage while Eagles perform hits from the album including "New Kid in Town" and "Life in the Fast Lane."

The band's 2020 tour will kick off Feb 7 in Atlanta and end April 18 in Los Angeles. Stops will include New York, Dallas, Houston and San Francisco.

The band recently performed the album in its entirety at shows in Las Vegas, the first time in its history that it had played the whole album in concert.

Tickets go on sale Friday on Ticketmaster.

The song is about the journey of the soul after death. That’s why it starts with a shimmering light.

A long way from those early albums with Bernie Leadon. Life in the fast lane will surely make you lose your mind.

Never been a huge fan, even less so with a full orchestra and choir. Way over the top for a simple pop song - like gold plated hubcaps and grill on a Toyota Camry.

Stealing! When Glen Frey died Don Henley said that the Eagles were over but then he hires Vince Gill and some nobodies and continues the Don Henley Band as 'The Eagles' anyway. He's the only original one left and he is greedy. This band was the first to charge $100/ticket back in 1994. This is a blatantly crass and sickening rip-off.

Without Glen Frey they might as well as rename the band The Pigeons.

There's only one original Eagle left in the band. Even Joe walsh is out and Don Henley did his damndest to kick out Dan Felder too. On top of that the reunited band put out only ONE album since their 1994 reunion, it was available only to WalMart (selling-out) and it wasn't even that good to begin with. Yet they've kept on touring with ticket prices going up up up up UUUUUPPPPP!!!! This 'Eagles' is a sickening money-grabbing sham of the most blatant degree.

Well baby, there you stand

With your little head down in your hand

Oh my God, you can't believe

It's happening again

Your baby's gone and you're all alone

And it looks like the end

Maybe the first time I wished I lived back in the States to see this show.

Wasn’t aware of this and other info from posters. Thanks, now I’ll wait to see if they come to me.

on a side note, is it OK for Paul McCartney or Queen without Freddie and Deacon?

That song was too popular even in late 90s that any rock kid knew how to play by listening few times.

Once one member is out, it's time to look for another band.

Paul McCartney writes, performs, and tours as himself. Even with Ringo Starr it's not billed as the 'Beatles'. As for 'Queen', as far as I am concerned you can't replace Freddie. Adam Lambert is alright but this 'Queen' jive is probably a stupid business thing anyway. Rock'n'roll seems to be a 'business' in the UK. It took the Beatles years to dissolve their band even when they all wanted to do so.

I saw the Eagles in '77 on the "Hotel California" tour - only cost £2 for the ticket. They were excellent but even then they were a bit dated with the arrival of punk.

I can't imagine why anyone would pay a fortune to see one of them and a bunch of session men in 2020

Remember what PT Barnum said.
