Eagles are on its first tour since the death of founding member Glenn Frey, and Lexington is in a new round of tour dates released Thursday morning.
The new tour – featuring longtime members Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit with country icon Vince Gill and Frey’s son Deacon Frey – will visit Rupp Arena on April 10, a Tuesday. Eagles last Lexington show was a July 2015 date, and Frey died six months later, in January 2016.
The tour visited Louisville’s KFC Yum Center in October. According to a Rolling Stone review of the band’s Grand Ole Opry dates in October, Frey took lead vocals on hits such as “Take It Easy,” “Peaceful Easy Feeling” and “Already Gone,” while Gill sang numbers such as “Heartache Tonight,” “New Kid in Town” and “Tequila Sunrise.”
Tickets for the Rupp date are listed at $49.50 to $229.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Dec. 15, a week from Friday, at the Rupp Arena ticket office, all Ticketmaster outlets, by calling 859-233-3535 or visiting Rupparena.com. Information on pre-sales is also available at the Rupp Arena website.
