The Eagle’s “Long Road Out of Eden” Tour
Following the resounding success of their long-awaited studio album, Long Road Out of Eden, the Eagles will kick off their new world tour on 20 March 2008 at the O2 Arena in London. The news of the Long Road Out of Eden Tour sparked such interest in the UK that the band has added two additional concerts to their tour schedule. The Eagles have been on the international music scene since the early 1970s and sold-out concert venues indicate that they continue to have a loyal following.
The Long Road Out of Eden Tour starts off with four concerts in London on 20, 22, 23 and 26 March 2008. Their tour continues with a concert at the Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on 29 and 30 March. The next stop is Rotterdam in the Netherlands for concerts on 1 and 3 April, and then back to London for the two additional concerts on 5 and 6 April 2008. After a short break the tour continues with concerts at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater at Encore Park in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, on 14, 16, 17 and 20 May 2008. The band has promised fans that their repertoire will include all-time favorites “Hotel California”, “Desperado”, “Life in the Fast Lane” and “Take it Easy”, along with tracks from their new album.
The Eagles first full studio album since 1979, Long Road Out of Eden, took nearly six years to produce. In 2006 the initial release to the public of three of the songs from the album was done along with a DVD of a live performance in Melbourne during their Farewell 1 Tour. Then on 20 November 2007, the Eagles released the Deluxe Collector’s Edition of the album which included two bonus tracks. This release of Long Road Out of Eden is wrapped in a screen-printed red linen cloth and includes a forty page booklet containing photographs, credits and lyrics – truly a collector’s item.
As one of the best-selling American groups, the Eagles, consisting of Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Frey and Timothy Schmit, received the well-deserved honor of being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. The Long Road Out of Eden Tour will show audiences that the Eagles certainly have what it takes to keep their fans happy.
