Eagles 2013 Tour Could Be Their Last
Haven’t we heard this one before? The Eagles, making the publicity rounds in London, told reporters that their upcoming tour could very well be their last one. Like, ever. But the band has made this announcement about three dozen times over the past 35 years, so believe what you want.
The Eagles were in England this week for the opening of their documentary ‘History of the Eagles.’ Vintage Vinyl News is reporting that, during a press conference after a screening of the movie for reviewers and reporters, the band said they may call it quits after their upcoming tour, which kicks off in July. But Glenn Frey didn’t promise anything. “We’re about to begin rehearsals next month for our world tour,” he said. “I don’t want to say it’s our last world tour, but it very well could be. That’s the only immediate plan. We’ve been working on this documentary. That’s all I know.”
The documentary, which will be released on home video next week, chronicles the group’s ups and downs over the past 40 years. It will include a bonus disc featuring a concert from 1977, three years before the Eagles called it quits for the first time. Their 1994 reunion shows were so popular that the band has mounted several tours since then. They even released their first album of new material since 1979’s ‘The Long Run’ in 2007 and, yep, went on the road in support of it.
“It’s somewhat confounding, but people still want to see us play,” Frey told the London press. “It doesn’t seem to end for us. You’d think people would get tired of us. But you know, people haven’t.”
So you better catch them while you can. Here are the tour dates, in case you want to see them one last time. Or at least one last time during the summer of 2013.
