The Eagles Fly Back To Australia Next Year

US rock legends Eagles are flying down to our shores next year as part of their critically-acclaimed world tour. They will be landing at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena then will glide their way up to the Brisbane Entertainment Centre before winging south to Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena for the final show. After the Aussie dates, the band will head their way to New Zealand to delight flocks of fans at Auckland's Spark Arena and Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin.

The best-selling American band of the 70s and one of the top-selling acts of all time, Eagles continue to transcend both generation and genre. Since forming in Los Angeles in 1971, they have sold over 150 million albums, scored six #1 albums and topped the singles charts five times.

The upcoming tour is a celebration of the band's prolific career, and the setlist will include songs from all of Eagles' seven studio albums—'Eagles' (1972), 'Desperado' (1973), 'On The Border' (1974), 'One Of These Nights' (1975), 'Hotel California' (1976), 'The Long Run' (1979) and 'Long Road Out of Eden' (2007).

Band members Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey will be joined on stage by a marvelous live band that includes a full horn section and full string section. Since the tour kicked off in North America last March, the rock icons have performed to more than half a million fans, gathering high marks from critics and fans alike:

"With Gill and Deacon Frey on board, and the band’s veteran members clearly reinvigorated, the Eagles are back in orbit. Long may they fly." - The San Diego Union Tribune

"It took all of about 20 seconds [...] to realize this newfangled Eagles lineup would deliver the goods sonically in concert...The melange of voices melded into the familiar smooth harmonies that helped the Eagles distinguish themselves from so many other groups over their career." - Herald Extra

"It’s amazing that the musicians can make it seem so effortless when you can see with your own eyes how demanding it is. Gill's crack guitar work is another tool in the arsenal, superbly complementing Steuart Smith's fretwork." - Best Classic Hits

Eagles last visited Australia in 2015 for a 14-date run on their famed 'History of the Eagles World Tour'. Demand for tickets was so high that multiple arena shows were added in each capital city, alongside a pair of very special outdoor shows at Hanging Rock and Hope Estate.

Undeniably one of the most pivotal bands in contemporary music, Eagles have bagged six Grammy® Awards, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and have received the Kennedy Center Honors in 2016. To further celebrate their almost half a century career, they will release a Legacy collection in two comprehensive editions on Friday 2 November (via Warner Music Australia), available in both a 12-CD/DVD/Blu-ray set, and a 15-LP set.

Make sure you grab your tickets to one of Eagles' Australian dates and be in for a musical flight you will not soon forget!
