The Eagles skip Houston for rock reunion in Dallas

The Eagles skip Houston for rock reunion in Dallas

The Eagles, a band with a reputation that has been burnished by their relative lack of output, are headed back to Dallas, adding a stop at American Airlines Center on Oct. 11 as part of the fall leg in the "History of the Eagles" tour.

The band had previously announced a 12-city reunion tour taking place in July. The Dallas date, one of 23 added in the fall, is the tour's only stop in Texas.

The Eagles burned hot and heavy in the 1970s, releasing six albums in seven years before an acrimonious break-up in 1980. Singers Glenn Frey and Don Henley both went on to successful solo careers in the '80s. The band has been back together in one form or another since 1994, even releasing a new album in 2007 called Long Road Out of Eden.

Fans can expect the band, which now consists of original members Frey and Henley, along with Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, to play many of their iconic songs like "Hotel California," "New Kid in Town," "Take It to the Limit," "Lyin' Eyes," "Take It Easy" and more.

The band, which last came to Dallas in 2010, is touring in support of its latest project, a documentary also called History of the Eagles. The DVD features the documentary that first aired on Showtime, a concert from the band's Hotel California tour in 1977 and never-before-seen home movies, among other things.

Tickets go on sale to the general public starting June 15, although anyone with an American Express card can buy tickets starting June 9.
