Vince Gill Joins The Eagles For The First Show Without Glenn Frey

The Eagles with some special guests including Vince Gill performed together for the first time since Glenn Frey’s death at the Classic West festival at Dodger’s Stadium in Los Angeles this weekend. 

Joe Walsh told the crowd, "We're back, and we're back for our family, and you are part of our family. This one's for you, Glenn. You're in our hearts, and the music goes on."

Glenn’s 24-year-old son Deacon Frey and Vince Gill filled in for the late Eagles singer, trading off the lead on his songs. Deacon tackled such hits as “Take It Easy,” “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” and “Already Gone,” while Gill took the lead on "Lyin' Eyes," "Tequila Sunrise," "Take It to the Limit" and "New Kid in Town."

The show also featured a special guest appearance by Bob Seger, who joined the group for “Heartache Tonight,” which he co-wrote, telling the crowd, “This is for Glenn!"

The future for the band is uncertain. Don Henley did seem to suggest the festival shows may be the end, telling the crowd, "In case this is our last dance, we want to thank all the fans of Southern California.”

The Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan, with Earth, Wind & Fire, Journey and Fleetwood Mac performing at the festival. All six acts will do it all over again July 29th and 30th, when Classic East comes to New York’s CitiField.
