The Eagles To Tour Australia, New Zealand In 2015
The Eagles will swoop into Australia and New Zealand early next year for a string of arena dates, open-air shows and winery concerts.
The Australasian leg of the “History of the Eagles” world tour will start Feb. 18, 2015 at the Perth Arena and play a total of eight venues, including the iconic Hanging Rock in Macedon and the Hope Estate winery in the Hunter Valley. The trek wraps-up March 14 at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand, the band's first visit to the country in 20 years.
Michael Gudinski’s Frontier Touring Company is promoting the tour. A FTC statement promises the band members -- Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B Schmit -- will “deliver an incredible three-hour songfest of classic Eagles hits, including tracks the band had never previously performed live.”
The retrospective “History Of the Eagles” world tour kicked off on July 6, 2013 in Louisville, Kentucky. Along the way, the legendary American group re-opened L.A.'s Forum with a 28-song set. The Eagles last played in Australia in 2010, and in New Zealand back in 1995.
