The Eagles surviving members will reunite and team up with fellow rock legends Fleetwood Mac for a pair of newly planned festivals for New York and Los Angeles. Dubbed “Classic East and Classic West,” the festivals are slated to be held at New York City's Citi Field and Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium with dates TBA.
Billboard reports on March 2 that the pair of Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will act as headliners with additional artists expected to be added to the lineup. Both festivals will take place over a two-day period with organizers hoping to make the events an annual franchise.
The Eagles' future has been in question since the death of co-founder Glen Frey on Jan. 18, 2016. Surviving Eagles members have hit the road solo since Frey's passing. Surviving Eagles Don Henley will launch a tour Down Under, starting March 5 at Perth, Australia, at Kings Park & Botanic Garden in continued support of his fifth solo album Cass County while Joe Walsh will support Tom Petty on his upcoming launching April 20 in Oklahoma City at Chesapeake Energy Arena and Timothy B. Schmit will hit the road, starting with a two-night stand April 16 - April 18 at Chicago's City Winery Chicago in continued support of his 2016 solo effort Leap of Faith.
Fleetwood Mac have been off the road since wrapping their On With The Show Tour, which reunited the “Go Your Own Way” hitmaker with estranged Mac keyboard/lead vocalist Christine McVie on Oct. 25, 2016 in Phoenix. Mac's future has also been uncertain as Mac members Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie are currently working on a collaborative studio album while Stevie Nicks continues her hugely successful solo tour of North American with Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders, which launched Feb. 23 in Reno, Nev., and will wrap up April 6 in Uniondale, N.Y., at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
No other live dates for The Eagles or for Fleetwood Mac other than the two stadium shows have been announced. Stay tuned for more details.
