On a tour that’s brought them to Dallas four times, the Eagles are once again heading back to the area. On Nov. 25, the band will play Dickies Arena in Fort Worth.
Tickets go on sale Aug. 19 at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster.
Announced Thursday morning, the date is part of the Eagles’ “Hotel California” tour, on which they’ve been performing the 1976 album in its entirety, as well as a slate of greatest hits with help from an orchestra and choir.
The tour kicked off in 2019, and the band played Dallas three times in 2020 before adding a fourth show in 2021. Vince Gill’s singing was the highlight of the opening night, as well as that of Deacon Frey, son of Glenn. Both Gill and Frey joined the band in 2017.
Backed by a 44-piece orchestra, five-man brass section and 22-person choir from the University of Texas at Arlington, the Eagles powered through an hour-long rendition of Hotel California. They took an intermission, then came back for two hours of hits.
Fans wanting to get a closer look at Gill, a 22-time Grammy winner in his own right, don’t have to wait until the show. Gill will play Billy Bob’s Texas on Saturday, a familiar joint for the Oklahoma native.
“I think I played there in 1981 when it opened,” he told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram earlier this week. “I can’t prove that. I played with Rosanne Cash there in 1982. I’ve played there a bunch of times under a bunch of different configurations.”
