Woo hoo!!!

Eagles’ ‘Long Road’ stretches through next spring
The Eagles are filling in their 2009 calendar with another run of North American shows and a trip through Europe.
The veteran rockers, who wrapped their 2008 “Long Road Out of Eden Tour” earlier this month, are set to return to the road in January for a dozen US performances around the East Coast and South. Since last check, the Eagles have added March dates in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, as well as shows in Fargo, ND; the Missouri cities of Columbia and Kansas City; and the Ohio cities of Cleveland and Columbus. The band is also scheduled to launch a six-week tour of Europe in late May.
North American stops are listed below and overseas gigs can be found at the Eagles’ website. The newly added March dates go on sale beginning this Saturday (12/13).
As part of a new “all-in ticketing” program through Ticketmaster (LiveDaily’s parent company), many of the concerts will be sold at the advertised price with no additional convenience fees. The program was announced last month after Ticketmaster acquired a controlling stake in Irving Azoff’s Front Line Management Group, which counts the Eagles among its list of clients. Azoff is the CEO of the new entity, dubbed Ticketmaster Entertainment.
“The Eagles’ use of ‘all-in ticketing’ is the first step in Ticketmaster’s transformation to an all-encompassing entertainment company to allow artists to connect to their fans in both new and innovative ways,” Azoff said in a statement.
The Eagles’ ongoing tour finds Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit performing classic Eagles songs, hits from their solo careers and tunes from last year’s “Long Road Out of Eden,” which marked the band’s first collection of new material in 28 years.
The two-disc set topped The Billboard 200 and the Top Country Albums chart, and remains on those charts more than a year later. “Long Road Out of Eden” has gone seven-times platinum with the help of hit singles “Busy Being Fabulous” and “How Long,” the latter of which scored the Eagles a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, earning five No. 1 singles and five Grammy Awards, according to a press release. The Eagles’ “Greatest Hits 1971-1975” has reached 29-times platinum and is the best-selling album of all time in the US.
