Eagles bringing Hotel California tour to Phoenix
Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, with Deacon Frey and Vince Gill are bringing their recent, highly acclaimed “Hotel California” tour to Phoenix, Arizona on April 21, at the Talking Stick Resort Arena. The concert will feature a “Hotel California” set, with an accompanying orchestra and choir, followed by an additional set of the band’s greatest hits. The show is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM and will include a brief intermission between the “Hotel California” and the Greatest Hits sets.
Tickets go on sale beginning Friday, November 1, at 10 AM via Ticketmaster.com.
American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Monday, October 28, at 10 AM through Thursday, October 31, at 10 PM.
The band recently performed three sold-out performances of the iconic album Hotel California in Las Vegas, Nevada. The highly acclaimed concerts were the first time the Eagles have ever performed the Hotel California album in its entirety and featured 77 musicians on stage, including a 46-piece orchestra and a 22-voice choir.

Billboard magazine lauded the opening night concert in Vegas:
“The band performed the album from front to back, following with a blazing greatest hits set that had the audience at the sold-out arena constantly on its feet… a 23-song set of solid hits that make up the soundtrack of any Baby Boomer or Gen X’ers lives. With no exception, the songs have aged well, but how could they fail with the Eagles’ five-part harmony and five guitar-approach… (Henley’s) voice sounded as strong and pliant as it ever has, easily hitting the highest of notes, while retaining his trademark huskiness.”
A limited number of LaneOne Premium Packages will also be available, including amazing seats, transportation, preferred entrance, lounge access, commemorative laminate and more. Check HERE for LaneOne details.
Hotel California is the third best-selling U.S. album in history, certified 26-times Platinum by the RIAA. After its release in 1976, it topped the charts and won two GRAMMY Awards for “New Kid in Town” and “Hotel California.” Several of the songs from the album have never been performed since the original “Hotel California” tour. The band’s Their Greatest Hits 1971-1977 is the best-selling U.S. album in history, with the RIAA certifying the collection at 38-times Platinum.
In today’s faddish, fractured, rock landscape, the Eagles retain an appeal that transcends both generation and genre, cementing the band’s role as enduring musical icons. As the best-selling American band of the ’70s, and one of the top-selling acts of all time, the Eagles have sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, scored six #1 albums and topped the singles charts five times. They have won six GRAMMY® Awards, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, in their first year of eligibility, and received the Kennedy Center Honors in 2016.
