Eagles and Fleetwood Mac East, West Festivals

Eagles and Fleetwood Mac Planning New York and Los Angeles Festivals
by Dave Brooks

Organizers hope the Classic East and Classic West concerts at Citi Field and at Dodgers Stadium will become an annual event.

Two of rock’s most venerable acts are planning a bi-coastal music festival this summer and are hoping to develop an annual franchise around the concert series.

The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac will headline the festivals being billed as Classic East and Classic West in July, Billboard has learned, with shows planned for Citi Field in New York and Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles.  

Each festival will take place over two days with additional artists to be announced in the coming months. A number of big-time music companies are involved in the blockbuster concert concept including​ Azoff MSG Entertainment, Live Nation, the Oak View Group and CAA.

Classic East and Classic West will be the first concert performance by the Eagles since the death of band founder Glenn Frey in Jan. 2016. The coast shows are the only dates Fleetwood Mac has scheduled for 2017, says a source.

The classic-rock driven festival follows the success of Goldenvoice and AEG Live’s Desert Trip festival featuring the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, Bob Dylan, Neil Young and The Who, which did gangbusters business in October 2016 -- to the tune of $160 million in gross receipts. AEG officials have not announced whether Desert Trip will return to the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif. in 2017.

"Take it easy, Mr. Frey - as you fly - take it easy" - Stevie Nicks

Glenn Frey's passing on Monday, January 18th was a complete shock! I still find it hard to believe. At 67 he had so much life left to live. It's a tremendous loss to his family, friends and the millions of Eagles fans around the world.

Stevie posted on her website yesterday a short note. She's clearly devastated by the news.

Stevie Nicks in Eagles Documentary

Just watched the new Eagles documentary "History of the Eagles Part 1 and Part 2" that's running on Showtime.  First of all, it's long, about 3 hours in length for both parts.  Second of all, I thought it was really good. I'm not much of an Eagles fan, but it's remarkable how much of their music I know and like.  The vintage footage whether live or backstage was really cool to see. Check it out if you can. 

If you watch... During the credits Stevie gets a few words in on the band and it's influence on the music scene saying:

"I think they were a defining moment in the rock n roll world that I love. You couldn't really love the Eagles music and be an Eagles fan and actually know them and not aspire to greatness yourself"
