With five No. 1 singles, six Grammy Awards and six No. 1 albums, The Eagles are one of the most successful rock groups from the ’70s. They broke up spectacularly, and then regrouped in 1994.

“Desperado.” “Take It Easy.” “Hotel California.” “Take It to the Limit.” “Heartache Tonight.” “Life in the Fast Lane.” “Witchy Woman.”

They have sold more than 120 million albums worldwide.

There’s three opportunities coming up locally to enjoy their music in person.

Tonight and Friday at Cannonsburg Ski Area in Belmont, conductor-arranger Brent Havens and his rock band join the Grand Rapids Symphony to pay tribute to the classic rock titans.

Part of the Grand Rapids Symphony’s D&W Fresh Market Picnic Pops series, the “Music of The Eagles” performances are at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are still available for both concerts.

On Sept. 8 at 8 p.m. at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, The Eagles themselves are in concert.

The Eagles added Grand Rapids to the “History of The Eagles” Tour, and are expected to perform classics from their career along with songs from the band’s “History of The Eagles” documentary.
