Skip to comments.Eagles invite friends on new stadium tour

The Eagles sure know how to keep things fresh and interesting on the road.
For the veteran rockers' new stadium tour, the band, which often performs without supporting acts, recruited none other than the Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban to open shows. (Warning to Urban fans: He's not on the bill for the show at Busch Stadium.)
"We're giving people something for their money not to say they weren't getting their money's worth when they see us by ourselves," Eagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit says. "Normally, we're on a show of our own, but on this one we decided to have a little bit of a summer fest."
Booking the Dixie Chicks was somewhat of a controversial move. Many have yet to move past lead singer Natalie Maines' comments against the war in Iraq and then-President George W. Bush at a 2003 concert in London.

I’m watching the Cardinal’s-Oakland A’s game, and the announcers were just now AGAIN trying to “sell” the concert.
Many have yet to move past lead singer Natalie Maines’ comments against the war in Iraq and then-President George W. Bush at a 2003 concert in London.
Rewriting history again, Maines’ dissed her fans.
“That didn’t sit well with country music fans then, and now Maines says she’s finished with the genre and is none too pleased with the fans, basically labeling them as redneck hicks.”
Maines said, “And I guess I was ignorant to the fact that the stereotypes behind country music were true and it was disappointing.”
Ouch. She wasn’t finished trashing the fans of country music.
“So I’m pretty much done. They’ve shown their true colors. I like lots of country music, but as far as the industry and everything that happened... I couldn’t want to be farther away from that,” Maines told EW.
Don Henley Must Die...
Eagles-— Most repellent of the baby boomer nostalgia bands
Oh, those eagles. I was mistaken, I thought Philly was showing off their “new” stadium to some “friends”. Joe Walsh should have stayed with the James Gang.
That’s where I saw it. Pujols just tied it up with a run scoring single.
Looks like Natalie should join the Indigo Girls.
The are liberals.
Next line in the article: “’We have nothing but respect for them because of the fact they stand by their convictions,’ Schmit says.”
That’s something to consider if anyone’s thinking of snapping up some bargain-basement Dixie Eagles tickets.
Did Natalie go lesbo?
...Larry the Cable Guy said Maines was flat out nuts...says he “You don’t go out of your way to piss off your fan base like that!”
Did their career tank? I have not heard much from them.
Looks like that wacky little bilge pump doesn’t think she’s getting enough attention. Is she pulling a Chastity Bono or something?
Thanks!!!!( They’ve stranded at least 4-5 so far and at least one DP. I’m recording it!!!!!!!)
Even Beergoggles wouldn’t cure that!
Look-a-like guitarist ping!

I don’t think Frey and Walsh are libtards.
You know the Eagles are the headline act for Austin’s ACL Festival in the fall. How did the organizers manage to miss signing The Dixie Chicks too? They are made for Austin.
That's a fact!
LOL Bilge pumps aren’t much to look at but I’ve never seen one that made me cringe like that. That is just painful.
Frey is a leftist, just not as outspoken as Henley. In fact it was his idea to do the benefit for Alan Cranston.
She looks like Joran van der Sloot in that picture.
I am as big a fan as it gets when it comes to the Eagles. But, I hate what they did to Don Felder. Moreover, I felt that their "new" album was pretty lame and sounded too country to me. Apparently they are still playing alot of those songs on their tour.
Puleeze. Geezer rock and the Dixie Chicks. Spare me.
Yes. Separated at birth. Only he dresses better.
I don’t care if he’s a liberal, as long as I don’t have to pay to be scolded. Walsh is libertarian in his outlook, I believe.
Joe Walsh is a licensed Amateur Radio Operator (WB6ACU).
In fact he forced Don Felder to attend. Thats when Don Felder smashed a guitar into the pillor out of frustration.
I loved the Eagles. Since Don Felder left ...I can care less.
Plus the prices for their concerts are outragous.
