Eagles have added five new stops onto their 2018 itinerary bringing the total amount of shows up to a whopping 53. New dates now on the books include a March 26th show in Des Moines, a third night in Los Angeles on September 15th, New York’s Madison Square Garden on October 9th, October 12th in Newark, October 14th in Detroit, and October 15th in Chicago. The Eagles feature classic members Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit — along with the late-Glenn Frey’s 23-year-old son Deacon Frey, as well as country legend Vince Gill.

In the current shows, Vince Gill is handling a large percentage of the classic Glenn Frey ballads. Joe Walsh explained how the group came to choose Gill for the gig: “Vince Gill has a been a really good friend of the band for a long time. And so, we thought about him having that kind of voice. And he grew up listening to the Eagles, so, all of that put together — we figured we would, at least try it.”

Side Notes:

The Eagles recently packaged their two multi-platinum greatest hits collections together for the first time ever, with the set now renamed, Eagles Greatest Hits 1 & 2.

The band’s first compilation, Eagles/Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975, was originally released on February 17th, 1976 and went on to top the Billboard 200 album charts the following March 13th for five non-consecutive weeks.

Eagles/Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 currently stands as the second-best selling album of all time, with 29 million units sold — four million less than the top seller, Michael Jackson’s 1982 masterpiece, Thriller.

1982’s Eagles Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 was released on November 13th, 1982, and although it stalled on the Billboard charts at Number 52, the set has sold a whopping 11 million copies to date.
