UPDATED: Eagles return to Dallas — again — this time in February 2014
They were booked "due to overwhelming fan demand."
DALLAS In case you missed the Eagles when the band twice played the American Airlines Center only days ago, you’re in luck (I guess?): Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit will return to the AAC on February 19, according to Live Nation this morning. Tickets go on sale November 9 at 10 a.m. at the arena’s box office or via Ticketmaster’s website.
[UPDATE: A presale runs 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, November 8 via Ticketmaster and LiveNation. The password is turkey.]
No doubt February’s set list will sound a lot like the one from October 11 and October 12: 40 years’ worth of hits offered Storytellers-style, with the occasional foray into Joe Walsh’s James Gang and solo period. As our Hunter Hauk wrote following the first night, the band was “looser” than during its 2010 AAC stopover and, thus, “ultimately more satisfying,” especially given the guest shot by original lead guitarist Bernie Leadon.
From this morning’s release comes the answer to trivia questions seldom asked:
The Eagles were the first ever event at the American Airlines Center in Dallas on July 28, 2001. Their upcoming third concert in Dallas will be a record-setting tenth performance at the American Airlines Center. No other artist has performed that many times in the arena. The Eagles has set a venue record venue with over 125,000 tickets sold and have produced the highest concert grosses of all time for the American Airlines Center. They are the only artist to perform three shows of the same tour on two separate occasions (2008 and 2013/14), proving that North Texas has one of the largest Eagles fan bases in the country.
