The Eagles announce UK and European tour

The Eagles have announced dates for a spring 2019 tour of the UK and Europe.

The month-long run will open in Antwerp, Belgium on May 26 and wrap up with a series of UK concerts and a July 6 event in Dublin, Ireland.

Tickets for the tour will go on sale Friday, October 5 at 9am via the usual outlets.

Word of the 2019 dates comes on the heels of the group’s news about a November 2 release of a career-spanning box set collection entitled “Legacy.”

The 14CD/DVD/Blu-ray package presents all seven of the California band’s studio albums, three live albums, and a compilation of singles and b-sides alongside a pair of concert films: 1994’s “Hell Freezes Over” on DVD and 2005’s “Farewell Tour: Live From Melbourne” on Blu-ray.

The group’s four US No. 1 albums – 1975’s “One Of These Night”, 1976’s “Hotel California”, 1979’s “The Long Run” and 2007’s “The Long Road Out Of Eden” – are accompanied by a “Singles And B-Sides” disc that delivers the Eagles’ debut 1972 single, “Take It Easy”, edits of “One Of These Nights” and “Take It To The Limit” and other hits as well as non-album tunes like “Get You In The Mood.”

A 15LP version of “Legacy” – which presents all of the music from the CD box without the video content – marks the vinyl debut of the 2000 “Millenium Concert” release and the long-awaited return to vinyl of 1980’s “Eagles Live” after being out-of-print for decades.

Both sets are housed in slipcases and accompanied by a 54-page hardbound book filled with rare and unseen photos, memorabilia, and artwork that encompasses the band’s entire career.

The EaglesDon Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, with Deacon Frey and Vince Gill – are currently playing shows on a North American tour that will finish at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii on December 7.
