Glenn Frey's son to replace father on Eagle's tour
The Eagles have officially found their replacement for the late Glenn Frey, and it's Frey's son Deacon.
On Monday, The Eagles' Don Henley announced on Dallas sports radio station KTCK that Deacon had signed on to play a number of shows with the band in July.
“There's going to be an official announcement in a few days, but let's just do it here,” Henley said. “Glenn's son Deacon is a very talented young man, and he seems to be up for the task.”
Henley said that after Frey died in January 2016, he wasn't sure he wanted to continue touring with the moniker. But playing with Deacon just felt right.
“I think it's the only appropriate way to carry on, since he's Glenn's blood. There'll be one more musician along for the ride too, but I'm not going to say who that is,” Henley said.
The shows will take place at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium in July and later that month at Citi Field in New York City. Other bands including Steely Dan and Fleetwood Mac will take the stage as well.
