As the first act to perform at the Center after it opened in 2008, it is only fitting that the Eagles return for the arena’s fifth anniversary celebrations.
As part of its History of the Eagles tour, the iconic band will perform on Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013.
The Eagles – Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit – will perform classics spanning their career including “Hotel California,” “New Kid In Town,” “Take It To The Limit,” “One Of These Nights,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” “Rocky Mountain Way,” “Best Of My Love” and “Take It Easy.” Hits from band members’ solo catalogs will also be featured during the evening.
History of the Eagles, the band’s acclaimed documentary, provides an unprecedented and intimate look into the history of the band and the legacy of its music. The three-disc set includes History of the Eagles Part One and History of the Eagles Part Two, as well as Eagles Live At The Capital Centre – March 1977, featuring never-before-released performances from the Eagles’ two-night stand at Washington, D.C.’s Capital Center during the legendary Hotel California tour.
Released on and Blu-ray on April 30, History of the Eagles is a meticulous creation featuring rare archival material, concert footage and never-before seen home movies that explore the evolution and enduring popularity of one of the world’s biggest-selling and culturally significant American bands. Available through the usual retail outlets, online at Amazon.com and www.eaglesband.com and can be purchased through Ticketmaster when ordering concert tickets, the package has already become one of the year’s best-selling music videos.

Part One premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah in January to great acclaim and made its British premiere on Thursday, April 25 at the Sundance London Film and Music Festival.
