The Eagles add second show at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre

The Eagles members (from left) Timothy B. Schmit, Don Henley, Glenn Frey, and Joe Walsh perform during the Green Concert at Piedmont Park on Friday, Oct. 15, 2010. The band returns to town for two shows at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in May. The second show goes on sale Saturday, March 17.

Despite reserved seating prices of $185, the classic rock band that gave us “Hotel California” and many other hits has added a second show at Alpharetta’s Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in May. Maybe it’s a sign of an economy in recovery, or maybe it’s just evidence of the Eagles enduring popularity.

The California-born band, whose drummer Don Henley once claimed they would reunite “when hell freezes over,” is back on the road again.

The band called it quits in 1980 and first reunited in 1994, releasing a live album called “Hell Freezes Over.” Since then, the band has continued with a series of very successful tours and a 2007 studio album that has sold more then 3 million copies. On the Eagles most recent visit to Atlanta, the group played to a packed Piedmont Park in October 2010.

Tickets for the band’s second Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre show, scheduled for May 2, go on sale Saturday, March 17, via Ticketmaster. Reserved tickets are $185 and general admission lawn seating is $65.

So, who’s going to the show?

Who knew that hell could freeze over twice in my lifetime? Saw them in 1994. At this price , I won’t be seeing them this time around.

I’m a HUGE fan….but I will not pay $185 (it’s really $204 once you add in those ridiculous fees) to see ANYONE. Really sad that so many of the true Eagle fans won’t be attending. Hopefully there will be a new Blu-ray release from this tour. I’ll get that if it comes out. Newest CD is fantastic by the way. At least The Eagles aren’t just playing the same old stuff over and over all the time. I really admire them for still releasing new music. Joe Walsh has a new CD coming this summer as well.

Wish I could say I’ll be there, but I won’t pay $185 (really $204 after fees) to see anybody! It’s a shame that so many of the true Eagles fans won’t be there because of the price. I hope there will be a blu-ray of this tour sometime soon. I’ll buy that. I really admire them though for continuing to record new albums. Many groups just tour on their past hits. The newest CD is excellent! Also, Joe Walsh has a new one coming this summer. I’ll be getting that one as well. Just can’t pay $408 for my wife and I to attend what will be an excellent show.

I understand Frank Ocean will be there you know… just to pick up an idea or two.

It saddens me that these iconic perfomers, not just the Eagles, let these venues charge the amount they do. I would love to take my 2 sons to enjoy a live show, but not at these prices.
