The Eagles to headline Classic Northwest concert in Seattle

The Eagles will headline The Classic Northwest concert in Seattle, WA on September 30.

The California band will be joined by The Doobie Brothers for the show at Safeco Field, home of MLB’s Seattle Mariners.

Tickets for The Classic Northwest go on sale August 5 at 10AM PDT.

The third event in The Classic series follows a pair of weekend festivals in Los Angeles and New York this month.

The July 15 date at Dodger Stadium saw the debut of The Eagles new lineup, with the late Glenn Frey’s son, Deacon, and country singer Vince Gill on board for the opening night of the 2017 series alongside sets by Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers, with Fleetwood Mac, Journey and Earth, Wind & Fire performing on July 16.

The same lineups will play in the same order Citi Field in New York on July 29 and 30.

Glenn Frey died on January 18, 2016 at the age of 67 from a combination of rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and pneumonia following surgery at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City.

Eagles co-founder Don Henley sees Deacon carrying on his father’s legacy as a natural fit for the group.

“There’s an old system both in Eastern and Western culture called the guild system, where the father is the master and the son is the apprentice,” Henley told Dallas, TX sports station The Ticket back in May. “The trade, the craft, the business is handed down from father to son. I think it’s the only appropriate way to carry on. I don’t think I’d do it otherwise. Since it’s Glenn’s blood, it’s his son, I think that’s appropriate.”
