Eagles bring Hotel California tour to Louisville, Kentucky

Big news this morning from KFC Yum! Center of Louisville. The announcement was so big that Arena started teasing it yesterday on social media.

I saw this post last night, captured it, and naturally, at 6:00 a.m. CST this morning, I checked out KFC Yum! the Centre’s Facebook page and saw the great news.

I say “big”, but this news is HUGE!! The Eagles bring the California Hotel Tour 2022 in Louisville and promise to play their legendary album Hotel California From beginning to end.

Tickets are scheduled to go on sale Friday, April 1 at 10 a.m. EST (9 a.m. CST).

Come to KFC Yum! The center will be Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, along with country music star Vince Gill.

Here’s a fun story about the band and the Yum! Center. The Eagles were the first official concert at KFC Yum! Center on October 16, 2010 and back as part of their 11th anniversary celebration.

As the FB post states, each concert will feature the Hotel California album performed live in its entirety from beginning to end, accompanied by an orchestra and a choir. But there is more. After intermission, the Eagles will perform a series of their greatest hits. It looks amazing!

Funnily enough, my tennis buddy Jim and I were just talking about the Eagles and their tour this weekend. I know he’s going to be really excited about this news and, if you’re reading this, you probably are too.
