They may not live in the fast lane anymore, but California country rock legends The Eagles are still on stage to take it easy.

The acclaimed band of founding vocalist/drummer Don Henley, along with longtime guitarists Joe Walsh and bassist Timothy B. Schmidt will be joined by country singer Vince Gill who replaces late founding member Glenn Frey. Frey died in 2016. His son Deacon was playing with the band but left the band to pursue other interests in April this year.

The Hotel California 2022 tour sees the band perform the entire 1976 album of the same title, followed by a greatest hits set.

Hotel California became the band’s best-selling album with over 26 million in sales. The compilation Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) is the band’s only album to surpass Hotel California. It remains the best-selling album in the United States with over 38 million sales. Michael Jackson’s Thriller is number two with 34 million.

Formed in 1971, the Eagles enjoyed one of the most commercially successful tours of any band in the 1970s before disbanding in 1980. The band reunited for the Hell Freezes Over tour in 1994 and was active until 2001. They returned to active touring in 2007 and have been constantly active since then, including releasing the album Long Road Out of Eden in 2007.

For the Hotel California 2022 tour, the band will be joined by an orchestra and choir. The band’s six Canadian dates kick off September 9 at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. The complete list of visits is included:
