The Eagles Return To Van Andel Arena March 15, 2018
They were just here three years ago, and now they're heading back. The Eagles have announced they've added Grand Rapids to their 'An Evening With The Eagles' tour.
Tickets go on sale Friday, December 15.
The Eagles announced their new tour dates officially Thursday, adding 13 cities. Grand Rapids will be the second stop on this leg on Thursday March 15. Tickets will be pricy again, starting at $99.50 and going all the way up to $399.50. Some special perk laden VIP tickets will range up towards $1000.
No opener has been announced. Country singer Chris Stapleton, Jimmy Buffet and James Taylor have all taken turns opening for the Eagles on the first leg of this tour.
Officially Don Henley, Timothy B. Schmidt and Joe Walsh are the lone remaining members of the band. They've been joined by original member, the late Glenn Frey's son Deacon, and country legend Vince Gill.
Variety wrote of the first concert:
If this was a test run for whether a post-Glenn Frey version of the Eagles could pass muster, it augured well on that front, thanks to some smart choices about fill-ins for the late co-frontman. The most obvious live ringer was Frey’s 24-year-old son, Deacon,…looking and sounding spookily like the family patriarch in his most heartthrob-ish post-Troubadour days — and also put on some of the rowdier, earlier songs his father sang….Country great Gill provided as assured a recreation of Frey’s slick soulfulness on ‘Tequila Sunrise,’ ‘Lyin’ Eyes’ and ‘New Kid in Town’ as anyone could.
The band last played Van Andel Arena on September 8, 2014. It was the last time around on tour for Glenn Frey who died January 18, 2016.
Also, be prepared not to use your phone, as the Eagles are all about keeping it in the now. And not later.
