Phenomenal rock superstars Eagles are flying their way back to New Zealand, bringing their critically-acclaimed world tour to Auckland and Dunedin next year. After wowing their Kiwi fans, Eagles will be heading straight to their Australian tour for a trio of concerts happening in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.
Since forming in Los Angeles in 1971, the band have sold more than 150 million albums, scored six #1 albums and topped the singles charts five times. They're considered to be the best-selling American band of the 70s and one of the top-selling acts of all time. Their prolific career is celebrated in this tour's extensive setlist that pulls from all seven of the Eagles' studio albums—'Eagles' (1972), 'Desperado' (1973), 'On The Border' (1974), 'One Of These Nights' (1975), 'Hotel California' (1976), 'The Long Run' (1979) and 'Long Road Out of Eden' (2007).
Undeniably one of the most pivotal bands in modern music, Eagles have won six Grammy Awards, were inducted into the 1998's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility, and received the Kennedy Center Honors in 2016. Their irresistible charm and appeal continue to transcend both generation and genre.
On this tour, the Eagles—Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey—will be accompanied onstage by an incredible live band that'll include a full horn and full string sections. Since the tour kicked off in the US in March, the rock icons have performed to more than half a million fans, gathering shining reviews from critics and fans alike:
"It took all of about 20 seconds... to realize this newfangled Eagles lineup would deliver the goods sonically in concert... The melange of voices melded into the familiar smooth harmonies that helped the Eagles distinguish themselves from so many other groups over their career." - Herald Extra
"It's amazing that the musicians can make it seem so effortless when you can see with your own eyes how demanding it is. Gill's crack guitar work is another tool in the arsenal, superbly complementing Steuart Smith's fretwork." - Best Classic Hits
To further celebrate their prolific career, Eagles will release their Legacy collection in two comprehensive editions on Friday, 2 November (via Warner Music Australia)—available in both a 12-CD/DVD/Blu-ray set, and a 15-LP set.
Snatch up your tickets now and don't miss the unmistakable harmonies and timelesss hits of one of rock'n'roll's finest, Eagles.
