Eagles just previewed their upcoming concert set, titled Live From the Forum MMXVIII, with a unique take on “Lyin’ Eyes”.
Vince Gill fronts the version with a solid base of warm and intricate vocal harmonies and glassy guitar licks.
Gill and Deacon Frey (son of late Glenn Frey), joined the group in 2017, a year after the death of the aforementioned founding member. Live from the Forum MMXVIII documents the new lineup’s three September 2018 dates at the Forum in Los Angeles and will be available as both 26-track live album and concert film versions.
Gill and the younger Frey make their recorded debut on the package, which was teased by the band with the audio leak of “Hotel California”. The concert premiered on ESPN over the Fourth of July Weekend and features a mix of the band’s material like “Take It Easy”, deep cuts like “Those Shoes”, and material from solo careers of members like Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer”, Joe Walsh’s “Rocky Mountain Way”, and Gill’s “Don’t Let Our Love Start Slippin Away”.
The band recently postponed their Hotel California tour – which is set to feature full-LP performances of the 1976 album – due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new dates in 2021 will commence on September 16 in Denver and end on October 23 in San Francisco.
