With a little help from some famous friends, the Eagles are taking flight again.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will resume touring in 2018, their first full-fledged swing through the U.S. and Canada since co-founder Glenn Frey's death in January 2016.
The tour mixes "An Evening with the Eagles" arena concerts with stadium shows, where they will be joined by either James Taylor & His All-Star Band, longtime pal Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band or country artist Chris Stapleton.
The Eagles' official lineup—drummer Don Henley, guitarist Joe Walsh and bassist Timothy B. Schmit—now includes Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill and Deacon Frey, Glenn's 24-year-old son. Both musicians performed with the band at stadium gigs last summer in Los Angeles and New York.
A dozen dates are already on the calendar, starting March 14 at Chicago's United Center. Walsh, however, says he expects the tour will expand to "between 40 and 50 dates" before the end of 2018.
