THE EAGLES have announced a new tour with nine UK and IRELAND dates – their first since the 1996 HELL FREEZES OVER tour.
The band are to kick off the tour in Moscow, Russia – the first time the band have played in the country.
The Eagles‘ reunification comes after a bad-tempered split in the early ’80s after the band’s multi-million-selling ’70s heyday. The group, which included Don Henley and Glenn Frey, vowed never to work with each other again. They eventually agreed to return to touring in 1996. They also planned to stage a Millennium Eve show in Los Angeles, which was eventually cancelled.
The band ran into further problems recently when it was revealed that Henley and Frey are being sued by sacked guitarist Don Felder.
The UK and Ireland dates are:
London Earl’s Court (June 9 and 10)
Manchester Evening News Arena (18 and 19)
Belfast Stormont Castle (29)
Dublin RDS (30)
Birmingham NIA (July 19 and 20)
Glasgow Hampden Park (July 22)
