The Eagles have just announced their first full-on tour dates since the 2016 death of Glenn Frey.

With last month's "Classics East & West" shows an across-the-board success, the band featuring, Frey's 23-year-old son Deacon Frey along with country legend Vince Gill, quickly added a September 30th "The Classic NW" gig at Seattle's Safeco Field with the Doobie Brothers.

The new stops are set for October 17th at Greensboro, North Carolina's Greensboro Coliseum; October 20th at Atlanta, Georgia's Philips Arena; October 24th at Louisville, Kentucky's Yum! Center; and October 27th at Detroit, Michigan's Little Caesars Arena.

Joe Walsh admitted to us that it took time and soul searching for the Eagles to find a genuine way to carry on without its leader and driving force, Glenn Frey: "We spent a long time after Glenn passed in discussions and we needed to put some time in there. But, in the course of talking, we started think 'If the Eagles continued, what would that be?' Gradually, some clarity started to come on it and we reached out to Glenn's son Deacon -- and he's a pretty good musician. And he said, 'Anything I can do -- I'm in.'"

Just Announced: The Eagles tour dates (subject to change):

September 30 - Seattle, WA - "The Classic NW" at Safeco Field (with The Doobie Brothers)
October 17 - Greensboro, NC - Greensboro Coliseum
October 20 - Atlanta, GA - Philips Arena
October 24 - Louisville, KY - Yum! Center
October 27 - Detroit, MI - Little Caesars Arena
