The History of the Eagles tour has brought the band back together again, and in return, it looks like the Eagles are going to help a famous venue get back off the ground as well!
Rolling Stone reports that the Eagles will re-open the Los Angeles Forum in Inglewood, CA with a three-show stint in mid-January.
Once dubbed L.A.’s “Fabulous” Forum, the arena hosted the likes of Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and of course, the Eagles, throughout the 70s before falling by the wayside with the opening of other venues such as the Staples Center.
Recently, the Forum was purchased by the company that owns New York’s Madison Square Garden, and after a reported $100 million worth of updates and repairs, the building will be the largest venue in the country used solely for music and live entertainment upon opening its doors.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey said about the Forum’s reopening, “Everybody is gonna want to play here, that's gonna be the phenomenon that we see. It's gonna become the premiere place to play west of the Mississippi, maybe all of the country.”
The Eagles shows at the Los Angeles forum will run on January 15, 17 and 18, with ticket info to be announced soon. The Eagles also have a series of North American concerts set to kick off on September 4 in Seattle, WA.
