Eagles Announce Special Guests For London BST Hyde Park Show
Eagles have confirmed a number of additional special guests for their BST Hyde Park show in London this summer.
Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, along with Vince Gill (who joined the band in 2017), will return to the UK and Ireland next month for a string of dates in Liverpool, Edinburgh, Dublin and London.
The band previously confirmed that they will be supported in London on June 26 by Robert Plant + Alison Krauss and Little Big Town, and they have now added a number of additional special guests to the Hyde Park gig.
Singer/songwriter Cam, Nashville artist Morgan Wade, London band The Wandering Hearts and New Jersey-raised musician Patrick Droney will all perform before the Eagles in June, with more artists set to be announced soon.
“We are absolutely beside ourselves to be included in this line-up,” The Wandering Hearts said in a statement.
“The Eagles have been a huge influence on us growing up and especially as a vocal harmony group. The same must be said for Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, in fact we have huge amounts of admiration and respect for all the artists on this year’s line-up, many of whom have been firm favourites of the band for years!”
Tickets remain on sale for Eagles’ BST Hyde Park gig, as well as their other UK and Ireland dates next month.
As the best-selling American band of the ’70s, and one of the top-selling acts of all time, the Eagles have sold more than 200 million albums worldwide, scored six No. 1 albums and topped the singles charts five times. They have won six Grammy Awards, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, in their first year of eligibility, and received the Kennedy Center Honors in 2016. The RIAA recently certified Their Greatest Hits 1971-1977 as the best-selling album in history (38-times Platinum) and Hotel California as the third best-selling album (26-times Platinum).
