The Eagles have just added a dozen stops to their 2022 itinerary. The new cities now on the books are are Cleveland, Ohio; Chicago, Illinois; Indianapolis, Indiana; Detroit, Michigan; Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Columbus, Ohio; Buffalo and Belmont Park, New York; Nashville, Tennessee; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Salt Lake City, Utah.

The band's ongoing Hotel California shows feature an accompanying orchestra and choir and kick off with the classic album. The band goes on to play a further 23 tunes — including a few dips into both Don Henley and Joe Walsh's solo catalogues.

In addition to Henley and Walsh, the Eagles also feature 43-year-veteran Timothy B. Schmit — along with the late-Glenn Frey's 28-year-old son Deacon Frey, as well as country legend Vince Gill.

Bassist Timothy B. Schmit was the last official Eagle to join the band after the release of the 1976 blockbuster Hotel California and before the sessions for 1979's The Long Run. Schmit told us he knew he was just the player the group needed following Randy Meisner's defection in late-1977: ["A really great thing that happened when Glenn first called me and then it all unfolded when I said, 'Yes, I want to do this' was that they asked me to join before we played one note of Eagles music together. I was the one they wanted and it seemed like a really perfect fit to me. It just did — I'm not blowin' my own horn. But it was obviously a great thing for me, but I really knew that I was the perfect guy to go there. I knew how to do what they wanted me to do."] SOUNDCUE (:31 OC: . . . wanted me to do)

In the current shows, Vince Gill is handling a large percentage of the classic Glenn Frey ballads. Joe Walsh explained how the group came to choose Gill for the gig: ["Vince Gill has a been a really good friend of the band for a long time. And so, we thought about him having that kind of voice. And he grew up listening to the Eagles, so, all of that put together — we figured we would, at least try it."]  SOUNDCUE (:17 OC: . . . least try it)
