Legacy of the Eagles 

For more than five decades, the Eagles have performed sold-out shows in arenas and stadiums around the world. Their success continued throughout the years, even with the group’s hiatus in the ‘80s and early ‘90s. Starting as the backing band for Linda Ronstadt, the Eagles quickly rose to fame and constructed an American music style that combined rock, folk, country and R&B. They have inspired a wide range of artists including Guns N’ Roses, Travis Tritt, Niall Horan and Daft Punk. 

Eagles have sold upwards of 150 million albums worldwide, earning the status as one of the highest-grossing bands of all time. They have received a wealth of honors and awards, including 18 Grammy nominations and six Grammy Awards. Their Grammy wins include Record of the Year in 1978 for “Hotel California” and Best Pop Instrumental Performance in 2009 for “I Dreamed There Was No War.”

Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) album was honored by the RIAA as the Best Selling Album of the Century. This release along with Hotel California marked the Eagles’ best albums, the former being certified 38 times platinum and the latter 26 times. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominated and inducted the Eagles in 1998 and in 2016 the band became Kennedy Center honorees. 

Remembering Glenn Frey  

In January 2016, the world mourned the loss of Glenn Frey, guitarist, vocalist and founding member of the Eagles. Frey’s family and friends received an outpouring of condolences when the news broke, and many prominent musicians paid tribute to Frey’s memory. Days after his passing, Bruce Springsteen paid tribute to his friend by performing a cover of “Take It Easy” in Chicago. 

The song was the first of three singles released for the Eagles’ debut album, followed by “Witchy Woman” and “Peaceful, Easy Feeling.” Written by Frey and Jackson Browne, “Take It Easy” landed at No.12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and jumpstarted the Eagles’ success. It remains one of the band’s best-performing songs with more than 513 million streams on Spotify. 

During the Eagles’ hiatus in the ‘80s, Frey embarked on a solo career. His hit singles “You Belong to the City” (Miami Vice) and “The Heat Is On” (Beverly Hills Cop) nearly topped the Billboard Hot 100, landing at No. 2. Frey was one of the more successful members of the Eagles in his solo career, with 12 charting songs like “Smuggler’s Blues” and “The One You Love,” and five studio albums. Frey also took on several acting roles in TV and movies like Miami Vice and Cameron Crowe’s Jerry Maguire.

Following Glenn Frey’s death, his son Deacon and award-winning country singer Vince Gill were recruited to join the remaining members of the Eagles. Frey and Gill both took up lead and backing vocals as well as guitar duties for the rock outfit. With original Eagles bandmates, Joe Walsh and Don Henley, Glenn Frey’s memory will be kept alive throughout the tour.
