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?
