Discography

December 10, 2008

The Eagles – the band impersonate American west coast rock. It is hard to think of any other band to really have both the music and lifestyle to fit the description. When they returned for a moment in 1994, the band proved that, had they stayed together, they might easily have conquered the ’80’s like they did the ’70’s. Well, at least they left us with a legacy of six great studio albums of timeless music for any key moment in life.

Biography

December 10, 2008

 

Eagles Tickets

1979 – The Long Run took 2 years to record, a sharp change from the normal annual schedule the Eagles had been on. Though overwrought with clashing personalities, the album became the third straight number one album, selling platinum seven times and releasing a number one single with “Heartache Tonight.” The Eagles end came in terrific fashion. Fans who bought tickets to the July 31, 1980 show in Long Beach saw the musicians openly threatening each other between songs.

The infamous “Long Night at Wrong Beach” resulted in the splitting the group. Frey and Henley took to different coasts and produced the live album Warner Bros. was owed through the mail. Eagles Live still sold an amazing seven times platinum and began the introduction of lawyers as the new members of the group. The Eagles would not sell tickets together for more than a decade.

14 years was simply not long enough for all the wounds to heal and soon the group was fighting again. Don Felder left the tour after clashing with the Frey, Henley, Walsh, and Schmit. Suits and counter suits followed for the next few years, but the remaining four continued to sell tickets to concerts. The potential last album from The Eagles, Long Road out of Eden – 2007 continued the tradition of hitting at least seven times platinum and was the group’s fifth consecutive number one album.


After varying degrees of success as solo artists and a tribute album by well-known musicians, The Eagles reunited in 1994 and started to tour together again. The live album was titled Hell Freezes Over in a humorous recognition of the past hatred that dominated the group at the end of their run in the ‘70s. With two new tracks and fans waiting to pay any price for tickets to see “the” group of the ‘70s play, the album and the tour were smashing successes.

The Eagles in Belfast

December 9, 2008

lmost eight years to the day since they wowed audiences along the green grassy slopes of Stormont, US rock group The Eagles is set to return to Northern Ireland for another one-off show.

 

The American country rock band, which had five No. 1 singles and six No. 1 albums, have just announced they will play the Odyssey Arena on June 30, 2009.

The Eagles, who were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, have sold more than 120 million albums worldwide and have won four Grammy Awards.

Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 is the best-selling album of all time, exceeding sales of 29m, and the band’s albums Hotel California and Greatest Hits Volume 2 have sold more than 16m and 11m albums respectively.

When they first took to the stage at Stormont on June 29, 2001, they received a raucous welcome from fans. They were the fourth high profile act invited to play at the grounds as part of a series of open-air concerts following the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.

Elton John was the first artist to grace the grounds.

The late Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti was invited the following year and Lord of the Dance star Michael Flatley delighted audiences with his dancing skills in the lush surroundings.

Demand for the Eagles next Belfast date is expected to be very high. Last year, the group released their seventh studio album, Long Road Out Of Eden — their first since 1979, which sold 5,593,120 copies worldwide.

Long Road Out Of Eden debuted at number one, selling a staggering 711,000 in nine weeks to become the biggest selling album by a group in 2007.

The Eagles also won the 2008 Grammy Award for Best Country Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals for How Long.

Fans of the band, which features Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B Schmit, can expect a stellar show with the group performing hits from Long Road Out Of Eden, including How Long and Busy Being Fabulous, as well as a repertoire of songs from earlier albums including classics such as Hotel California, Take It Easy and One Of These Nights.

Tickets will go on sale on Thursday, December 11, at 9am from the Odyssey Arena Box office and all usual TheOnlineTicketExchange outlets.

Eagles – The Band

December 9, 2008

The Eagles are an American country rock band formed in Los Angeles, California during the early 1970s. With five number-one singles and six number-one albums, the Eagles were one of the most successful recording artists of the decade. At the end of the 20th century, two of their albums, Eagles: Their Greatest Hits 1971–1975 and Hotel California, ranked among the ten best-selling albums according to the Recording Industry Association of America. The best-selling studio album Hotel California is rated as the thirty-seventh album in the Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, and the band was ranked number 75 on the magazine’s 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. They also have the best selling album in the U.S. to date with Eagles: Their Greatest Hits 1971–1975.

 

The Eagles broke up in 1980, but reunited in 1994 for Hell Freezes Over, a mix of live and new studio tracks. They have toured intermittently since then, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

 

In 2007, the Eagles released Long Road out of Eden, their first full studio album in 28 years.
