The classic '70s rock group The Eagles, along with special guests The Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban, will perform at Hersheypark Stadium on June 15.
Tickets are $195, $125, $85 and $45. They go on sale April 26 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at the Giant Center Box Office, LiveNation.com, HersheyEntertainment.com or by phone at 877-598-6504 or 717-534-3911. American Express card owners will have early access to tickets beginning 10 a.m. Wednesday through 10 p.m. Sunday.
The Eagles, consisting of Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, will perform such hits from their more than 35-year career as Hotel California, Desperado, Life In The Fast Lane, Lyin Eyes, Take It To The Limit, One Of These Nights, Heartache Tonight, and more. The band, which has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, last performed in Hershey in 2008.
The Dixie Chicks -- Martie Maguire, Emily Robison and Natalie Maines -- will hit the stage for the first time in four years, performing songs from all three of their albums including Wide Open Spaces, Goodbye Earl, and Not Ready to Make Nice.
Three-time Grammy Award winner Urban has sold nearly 15 million albums worldwide. His songs include "Days Go By," "Sweet Thing," Who Wouldn't Wanna Be Me," "You'll Think of Me," "Better Life," and Billboard's Country Song of the Decade, "Somebody Like You."
On my drive-time radio this morning the announcer said they’d be giving away tickets to the Eagles/Keith Urban show. He didn’t even mention the Dixie Chicks.
The Eagles’ last album was horrific. Apart from the anti-war politics they tried to shove into it to elevate it and get some attention, it was just awful music.
They have a little more cache with audiences than DC so it can be overcome, but if they’re touring with DC, it’s going to be the BushBash tour.
Cowards. We'll see if they're still on their feet when they get to Hershey. Don't be surprised if there's an "unexpected" cancellation of that show.
Good Lord, that looks like Gary Busey!!
I've got some bad news for you. If you take the $195 you have to sit in the front few rows. You won't be allowed to hang out in the back and sneak out part way through the first set.
Toby said something nice about Obama in 2008, and the press ran with it, claiming he supported him for president. And every time a country music thread comes out, someone brings up Toby Keith's comments.
Keith also cited erroneous headlines and reports in the media indicating that he supports Democrat Barack Obama.
I said that he had a chance to win it as the [partys] best candidate since Bill Clinton, Keith said. I said McCain is very able to run this country, too. Very qualified. ... They didnt put anything about McCain and Palin. They just put that Toby Keith supports Obama.
OK I’ll concede(maybe) on this...HOWEVER Timmy McGraw and his Wifey Faith Hill are HUGE DEMS!
Poor Toby. Sounds like he’s got foot-in-mouth disease, and has no concept of public relations. He needs to man up to the flak his statements create, and stop whining about it.
He’s only reinforcing his customer’s suspicions about him by appearing with the infamous “chicks”.
Sorry, but if he can’t figure this stuff out, then he needs a publicist who can.
Ugh - and the worst kind at that - McGraw's music has gotten wussier and wussier the longer he's been married to Hill. I can't bear to hear Faith Hill torture the parody of Joan Jett's music on Sunday Night Football either.
Give me Trace Adkins and Gretchen Wilson any day.
No wonder I never even heard of it.
Just watching baseball out of the Philly Station.
They are advertising this for June 14 in Philly.
Hardly...but that doesn’t make it news.
CANCELLED, man I called this one.
“The Eagles, Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban concert scheduled for June 15 at Hersheypark Stadium has been canceled. No reason why the concert was called off, but the June 14 show of the tour at Citizens Bank Ball Park in Philadelphia was also canceled. Full refunds for the canceled concerts will be available where tickets were purchased, said Melissa Stradnick, spokeswoman with Hershey Entertainment.”
Hershey Park. Where bands go to die.
Every time they announced it at the Bears games, I would BOO! them.
