The Eagles to kick off tour in Louisville on Saturday


A band that has been making music for more than four decades is bringing its history to audiences.

And the first show in the “History of the Eagles” tour will be held in Louisville at the KFC Yum! Center Saturday, July 6. 

The Eagles — Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit — announced a handful of concerts to coincide with the release of a documentary about the band, “History of the Eagles.” The documentary made its broadcast debut on Showtime in February and was released in a three-disc DVD and Blu-ray set in April.

The band has since added tour dates that run through November, but will kick off its first tour in two years in Louisville. The documentary features never-before-released performances, home movies and rare archival footage to provide an intimate look into the history of the band and the legacy of its music.

The American rock band known for hits like “Hotel California,” “Take it Easy” and “Witchy Woman” will play its classic songs — some tunes that have never been performed live — as well as songs featured in the band’s documentary, according to The Eagles website.

In addition, songs will also be featured from the band members’ solo careers, according to the description on the Yum! Center website. Those hits include songs like “The Boys of Summer” and “The End of the Innocence” from Henley; “The Heat is On” and “You Belong to the City” from Frey; and “Life’s Been Good” from Walsh.

According to the band’s website, The Eagles have sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, have won six Grammy awards and are members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Tickets for the Louisville show are available at,, all Ticketmaster outlets and the KFC Yum! Center box office or charge-by-phone 1-800-745-3000. 

Tickets range in price from $39-$195 plus applicable fees and are still available.
