Could the Eagles’ current tour be the last sprint in their “long run?” Possibly: their tour has an air of finality to it. Like the Rolling Stones bringing ex-guitarist Mick Taylor out on their recently-wrapped tour (speculated to be their last run), the Eagles have founding guitarist Bernie Leadon in tow. Drummer/singer Don Henley told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that founding bassist Randy Meisner wasn’t excluded from the tour either: “If he were healthy and willing, [he] might have been included, too, but his current health will not permit. We are all wishing him well.”
The Eagles have rolled out the initial concert dates for the group’s “History of the Eagles” tour.
