Australian Music Tour includes ticket to Eagles concert

My family has traveled all over the world and I've been on a lot of tours.... but never have I seen a tour like this one!

This "Good Vibrations" tour of Los Angeles is put on by "Rock and Pop Tours" and originates in Australia... and actually includes a ticket to see the Eagles at the Hollywood Bowl as part of the deal! It takes you to other musical landmarks as well such as the Troubadour, but it's the Eagles ticket that got the news item onto this front page.

More info on the tour site.

The latest from Timothy on the Fleetwood Mac/Eagles tour: "it appears that that is not happening"

Timothy gave an interview today during which he said the following (transcribed by Sharon aka trackaghost from The Ledge):

Simon Mayo: "There was talk of The Eagles doing a stadium tour with Fleetwood Mac this year. Is there any chance of that happening?"

Timothy: "Well, erm, I just emailed our manager this morning and asked him that question - what we were doing during this summer and I didn't specifically ask him that but he did, he told me about that and it appears that that is not happening. So all these big rumours are just simply rumours. I think that it was being pursued for a while, that was the reality, but I don't think it's gonna happen. But I think we are still going to go out this summer but I'm not exactly sure with who or with anybody."

Simon Mayo: "So there's a chance The Eagles might be touring with another band?"

Timothy: "I think so, I think it's all up in the air at the moment. We are playing by ourselves, just us, during the Spring. We're starting at the Hollywood Bowl in April and we're gonna do a handful of shows and then we're going to take a break to probably mid-summer. I don't know what that schedule is yet."


Aw, man! I'm really disappointed. It would have been incredible!

Bye, bye 2009. Hello, 2010!

Wow, it's 2010 already. Dang! Before we close the lid on 2009, I thought I'd sum up what the year brought us. Here goes...

Eagles Year in Review: 2009

Takamine puts out a Glenn Frey Signature Guitar; Eagles play some dates in the South.

February: "I Dreamed There Was No War" wins a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental.

March: Eagles play some dates in Canada and the Midwest.

April: Timothy B. Schmit plays with Poco for the first time in decades at the Stagecoach Festival.

May: Eagles play "Race to Erase MS" benefit; Don Henley does a few solo shows in Florida and Oklahoma.

June: Very Best of Don Henley CD/DVD released; Eagles tour Europe.

July: Clear Channel launches Eagles Radio hosted by Joe Walsh; Eagles continue touring in Europe and the United Kingdom.

October: Timothy B. Schmit's album Expando is released and he begins his first solo tour EVER. He also gets an official MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter.

November: Don Henley plays a spate of solo dates with an "autumnal" theme.

December: Eagles announce first-ever dates at the Hollywood Bowl, set to take place in April; more California dates forthcoming.

Here's hoping 2010 brings even more Eagles highlights... like a summer tour with Fleetwood Mac! :: crossing fingers ::
