Eagles planning to team up with Jimmy Buffett for 2018 tour

music news 16/11/2017

The Eagles are reportedly teaming up with Jimmy Buffett in 2018 for a series of joint dates.

Longtime Eagles manager, Irving Azoff spoke with Best Classic Bands about upcoming plans for the group since the death of co-founder, Glenn Frey in 2016.

After the brilliant response to the band's limited shows early this year, with a lineup including Frey's son Deacon and country singer, Vince Gill, Azoff has predicted a stadium run for the two acts.

Azoff said they were "just talking about a handful" of shows between Buffett and the Eagles, one of which would serve as a "celebration" of both artists at Denver's Coors Field.

Azoff said there aren't any plans to record new music with the current lineup however.

"The Eagles are in an experimental phase," he explained. "I look at is as not really an Eagles tour; it’s really a celebration of their music. We just kind of do things that feel right. I don’t know how long it’ll go."

Back in 1976 Buffett opened for the Eagles and he inducted them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
