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."
From "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu, c. 544 BC........
"If ignorant both of thy enemy and thyself, you are in peril."
"If thou art far from the enemy, make him believe thou art near."
"Know thy enemy and thyself, and thou canst can fight a thousand battles without disaster."
I love ole Sun Tzu.....his "Art of War" is my personal answer to Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals", Obama's bible.
They’re BACK??!! Wow...my life is now complete!
BACK??!! Heck, I never even knew they were gone!!
I just don't get it either. If it was booked in a blue town, OK.
But here??? They will be fried ChickFila with this conservative crowd.
Shut Up And Eat tour.
Toby Keith is a Obamanator too.
This ought to go well, NOT.
I think the Eagles and Keith Urban are going to wind up wishing that they’d never made the mistake of appearing on the same stage with the “chicks”.

Well, well, well...
So, Don Henley, Toby Keith, and Natalie Maines are all Bush haters. Interesting.
These people are the worst kind of whores. They know good and damn well that the country music crowd is 99% conservative patriots, who supported GWB. And they're going to play to them anyway.
Does it matter that the Chicks' reason they were ashamed of Bush was bogus to us and 0bama's faults should be obvious to anyone? I'm not sure I want to defend that position.
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.
