Update: The Eagles added a slew of new dates to their 2018 North American tour on Thursday. The tour, whch originally included 12 gigs, ballooned to 26, with new stops scheduled in major hubs like Charlotte, New Orleans and Houston. Second dates were also added in Nashville, Vancouver and Toronto. The tour now starts March 12th in Indianapolis.
The Eagles will embark on a North American tour next year, with scattered dates scheduled throughout the spring and summer. The trek begins March 14th at the United Center in Chicago.
Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will join the Eagles for four stadium concerts, while James Taylor and His All-Star Band will open two shows and Chris Stapleton will open one performance. Tickets for most dates go on sale December 2nd at 10 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster, though tickets for shows in Arlington, Texas, Denver and Washington D.C. go on sale December 1st at 10 a.m. local time. Complete information is available on the Eagles' website.
The Eagles' touring lineup will feature members Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit alongside Vince Gill and Deacon Frey, who will fill in for his late father, Glenn Frey. This lineup debuted at the bi-coastal Classic East and West festival this summer and has since performed a handful of additional shows.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Walsh spoke about the band's first shows since Frey's 2015 death and the new lineup, saying, "We've got some new blood. We all know the songs pretty good, but we just have to run the drill. It's like being an athlete and doing the reps to get into shape. The new guys [Deacon Frey and Gill] have to get to the point where it's automatic or it's transparent."
