AXS TV announces special Eagles programming

Concert premiere includes Eagles: Farewell I Tour – Live From Melbourne and Hell Freezes Over

AXS TV is proud to present a pair of unforgettable concerts from the legendary Eagles, kicking off with the network premiere of the Eagles: Farewell I Tour – Live from Melbourne on Sunday, March 31st at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT, marking the first time the special will be available on television since its initial premiere in 2005, and the 1994 cable special The Eagles: Hell Freezes Over on Sunday, May 5th at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT.

“The Eagles are one of the most iconic and influential bands in rock history,” states Lucia McCalmont, Vice President of Programming and Scheduling at AXS TV. “Now, for the first time ever on our network, AXS TV viewers can relive two of the band’s most unforgettable performances as we proudly present the premieres of the Farewell I Tour and Hell Freezes Over. This is a great opportunity for long-time fans to fall in love with the Eagles all over again, while introducing a new generation to a band whose style and sound defined an entire era of rock n’ roll.”

The special Eagles: Farewell I Tour – Live From Melbourne captures the Eagles’ sold-out Melbourne concerts from their historic Farewell I Tour and features nearly three hours of classic hits in addition to the debut of two new tracks. Twenty-nine songs from the band’s six studio albums are performed — as well as selected solo releases — including hits “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” “Already Gone,” “Tequila Sunrise,” “Life In The Fast Lane,” “Hotel California,” “Desperado,” “One Day At A Time,” and “No More Cloudy Days.”

In Eagles: Hell Freezes Over, the band reunites for the first time in 14 years to unleash an epic career-spanning set in this unforgettable 1994 cable special. Filmed live at Burbank Studios in California, the night captures the Eagles in peak form as they rock the crowd with soaring renditions of signature favorites such as “Take It Easy,” “Desperado,” “Tequila Sunrise,” and, of course, “Hotel California,” among others.
