These are the group’s first shows outside The Classic East and West festivals in Los Angeles and New York last month featuring Fleetwood Mac, Journey, Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers and Earth, Wind and Fire. The Eagles and Doobie Brothers have set The Classic Northwest for Seattle in September.
Gill and Deacon Frey split vocal duties on songs originally handled by co-founder Glenn Frey, who died in January 2016 from a combination of rheumatoid arthritics, ulcerative colitis and pneumonia.
After Frey’s passing, many expected The Eagles to call it quits, including frontman and drummer Don Henley. However, he agreed to do the reunion shows on the condition that Frey’s son Deacon take his father’s place.
“We’re not replacing Glenn, because Glenn is not replaceable,” Henley tells the Dallas News. “We are adding his blood to the band. We’re keeping it in the family.
