Report: The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac To Play Festivals

The Eagles will return for the first time since the death last year of founding member Glenn Frey for what is being widely reported as a new bicoastal music festival. The event will also feature Fleetwood Mac and is billed as Classic West and Classic East for the respective West and East Coast editions.

The LA Times is reporting both acts are managed by Azoff MSG Entertainment, but a spokesman for veteran superstar manager Irving Azoff said Thursday that “we are not prepared to release anything officially — this caught us by surprise,” in reference to Billboard’s initial report of the shows.

The magazine said the events are expected to take place in July at Dodger Stadium and at Citi Field in New York.

For the Classic West and East festivals, numerous other acts are expected to be added to the lineups. The return of the Eagles puts an end to speculation about whether the group would continue without Frey, long considered the band’s leader and the chief architect of its signature sound and cofounder with Don Henley.

Since Frey’s death at 67 from a combination of rheumatoid arthritics, ulcerative colitis and pneumonia, pop music pundits have speculated on whether and how the Eagles might continue.
