The Eagles to play entire 'Hotel California' album at Xcel Energy Center

The rockers will be joined by a full orchestra and choir.
Publish date:

The Eagles have announced a spring tour that will see them play the entirety of their iconic Hotel California album, and St. Paul is among the tour dates.

Founding member Don Henley along with Joe Walsh (who joined in '73) and Timothy B. Schmidt (who joined in 1977) will be joined by new recruits Vince Gill and Deacon Frey, the son of the late Glenn Frey.

The band will play two nights at the Xcel Energy Center, on Friday, Apr. 3 and Saturday, Apr. 4. 

And it will be unlike any Eagles concert you'll have seen before, with the group joined by a full orchestra and choir for the first half of the set, when they play 1976's Hotel California in its entirety.

Released in 1976, Hotel California has since become one of the biggest selling albums of all time.

The second half of The Eagles' St. Paul show will comprise a set of their other greatest hits.

Tickets on go sale on Friday, Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. More information can be found here.
