Just about year after Don Henley announced that after Glenn Frey's death the Eagles would never perform again, it was announced that they, along with Fleetwood Mac will be headlining two weekend Classic Rock concerts this summer. One on the East Coast and one on the West, and I'd LOVE to see the East Coast shows which will be at Citi Field (Let's Go Mets!).

No official word on who will be replacing Glenn (if anyone), but I've read somewhere that Jackson Browne or Bob Seger are possible candidates (with Jackson the obvious best choice)..

Sorry if this has already been posted... B)

    If tickets prices are anything like the last tour by either group you'll need to re-mortgage the house for decent seats.

    As far as I know there's still animosity.

    If they got back together and toured the world it be the concert of the century.

    I hear you gmcman. I always thought if ABBA got back together to do a concert ,it would be in the category of concert of the century. Alas , probably 10 years too late though. They still__ do, after all these years of not being a group, (35 yrs. or so?) have an enormous___ fanbase all over the world.

    Well ABBA's harmonies are a thing of beauty, then they got a boost from Mama Mia via Meryl Streep!

    I was refering to your Donner and Blitzen as to the North Pole reference. Nolan Ryan is my sisters neighbor.

    Yes quite. Truth be told, I had considered mentioning that Eagle-esque counterpoint, but demurred. Thanks for completing the circuit!

    Replace Glenn Frey? Get Vince Gill. He not only can sing, he could play a mean guitar as well.

    On the other hand, Gill declined Dire Straits' invitation to join that band.

    Are there any Eagles tribute bands running around? There are several real good Pink Floyd knock offs. I saw the Beatlemania show back in the late 70s on a Hard Days Night. Maybe an Eagles tribute band could call themselves the Vultures instead of the Ventures (that name is already spoken for, Wipeout!). At this point, a tribute band may pull off the Eagles song catalog much better than what is left of the Eagles.

    Ive seen some of the Pink Floyd tribute bands on video, but never in real life. Not sure how it would feel seing a tribute band. I get they are musically very close to the real thing.

    You can see "Eaglemania" at The Flying Monkey in Plymouth, NH! :)
    The Flying Monkey is actually one of our favorite "local" (OK, it's an hour-and-a-half away) venues up here in the frozen white north.

    I realize there are a lot of Eagles haters out there.

    I am not one of them, and that Farewell One Tour (especially on Blu-Ray) is one of my absolute favorites. I love the material, performances, video and (especially) the SOUND QUALITY. Reference demo material, IMHO...
