Eagles' Don Henley says "Hotel California" was band's 'creative peak'

It’s been nearly 50 years since four gifted young musicians decided to start a group that they called the Eagles. Much has changed since then, in music and across life’s wider landscape. The band’s lineup evolved, lawsuits ensued. For a while, they called it quits.

Yet here they are, on a concert trek that crisscrosses the United States and will even land at London’s Wembley Stadium. Kicking off Feb. 7 in Atlanta, the tour marks a first for the iconic rock band, who’ll play the epic Hotel California album top to bottom, followed by a two-hour set of their greatest hits. At each show, a full orchestra and, on the final tune, a vocal choir will enhance the music, though it’s the songs, not their adornment, that makes the Hotel California tour essential.

“Hotel California” is among the best-selling albums of all time and won the Grammy for record of the year in 1977.
