Eagles launch Hotel California tour without Deacon Frey

The Eagles launched the 2022 edition of their “Hotel California” tour in Savannah, GA this past weekend with a slight lineup change.

“Due to illness, Deacon Frey will not be performing with the Eagles during their “Hotel California 2022 Tour",” said the group in a statement. “Deacon's bandmates will take over his tour duties in his absence. Deacon rejoining the band for performances will be based on his recovery and doctor’s recommendations.”

The Eagles have not shared any further details on Frey’s health issue;.

Deacon and country star Vince Gill were both new additions to the group’s touring lineup in 2017 following the passing of band cofounder Glenn Frey in 2016.

The US leg of the series –which sees The Eagles perform a “Hotel California” set with an accompanying orchestra and choir, followed by an additional set of the band’s greatest hits – will wrap up in Salt Lake City, UT in late May. See also:
