Eagles to play ‘Hotel California’ in full at Wembley Stadium

Eagles have announced that they’ll return to the UK next summer to bring their ‘Hotel California’ tour to London.

In what’ll be their only European shows of 2020, the rock icons will play their seminal 1976 album ‘Hotel California’ in full before following it with a greatest hits set at Wembley Stadium on August 29 and 30.

Tickets will go on general sale from 9AM on Saturday (December 14) and you can buy them here.

It comes after the rockers, led by Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, played the album in its entirety for the first time ever at three sold-out shows in Las Vegas. The show featured 77 musicians on stage, including a 46-piece orchestra and 22-strong choir.

Back in 2017, Eagles reportedly sued a real-life Hotel California. They argued that the establishment “actively encourages” guests to believe that it’s in some way associated with the band.

Both sides agreed to cease legal action after the Californian hotel’s owners withdrew an application to trademark the Hotel California name in the US. “This case has been settled by mutual agreement,” said Eagles’ lawyer Thomas Jirgal.

It was previously reported that the hotel was originally named Hotel California in 1950 – long before the Eagles track was released in 1976.
