The Eagles are heading back Down Under for a seven-show tour…
The seven-date Australian leg of the History of the Eagles tour will kick off in Perth in mid-February 2015.
It will be the first time the Hotel California rockers have toured Australia since 2010.
The tour will include indoor arena dates in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney as well as outdoor concerts in Hunter Valley, Auckland and Victoria’s Hanging Rock.
The group was inspired to hit the road again after the documentary, History of the Eagles: The Story of an American Band, was screened at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
Founding member Glenn Frey said remixing their hits for the documentary’s soundtrack revived the band’s desire to play for their fans again.
“I was really surprised and reminded of how much fun we had,” he told Billboard.
“We’re here because everybody likes the songs.”
The three-hour concert promises all the classic Eagles hits, as well as some songs they have never previously played live.
After performing for Australian audiences, they’ll head to New Zealand for the first time in twenty years.
General public tickets will go on sale on June 10.
