John Paul Jones Arena announced this morning that The Eagles will be coming to town on May 21. The L.A. band has received quite a few accolades since coming together in 1971. They’ve racked up five No. 1 singles, four No. 1 albums (including 2007’s Long Road Out of Eden), a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, five Grammy awards and the U.S.’s best selling album of all time with 1976’s Their Greatest Hits.
The Eagles will play John Paul Jones Arena on May 21.
The band disbanded in the early ’80s after strife between Glenn Frey and Don Felder, but reunited in 1994 to tour and release the live album Hell Freezes Over. In 2001, the band fired Felder, who in turn sued the group. 2003’s The Very Best of the Eagles went triple platinum and Long Road Out of Eden was the band’s first record of new material since 1979. Tickets for the concert go on sale on April 4 at 10am.
