20 Years Ago: The Eagles Reunite For Hell Freezes Over Tour

20 years ago today ( May 27, 1994 ) , the Eagles reunited for the first time in 14 years to begin their Hell Freezes Over Tour in Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine , California, and was at least partly due to the music of country 's biggest stars .

The band split in 1980, after the release of his album ' Eagles Live’. Group members , including Glenn Frey, Don Felder and Don Henley, had been in conflict with each other since their 1979 album , ' The Long Run' , but were contractually obligated to his record company Elektra Records, to record definitive live album before they could dissolve. Unfortunately, at that time, Frey and Henley could not even be in the same room, so they recorded their voices in different studies in different states.

But while the singers 'Hotel California ' was ready to run away from his record; his fans were not so willing to let them go. In 1993, several country artists - including Trisha Yearwood, Diamond Rio, Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt and Tanya Tucker - Eagles recorded a tribute album: The album, which covered some of his biggest hits ' Common Thread the Songs of the Eagles. , Including “Peaceful Easy Feeling ", "I Cannot Tell You Why”, "Heartache Tonight" and "Best of My Love ," soared to the top of the charts and sold over three million units .

Tritt covered his debut single, 'Take It Easy "and asked the band to appear in his video. Was the first time that the group had been together in 13 years, and served as the impetus for the group to consider a meeting.

Only two months later, Frey and Henley lunch with management and agreed to meet formally. They performed live for the first time in April at the Warner Brothers studios in Burbank, California, where they shot 'The Eagles: Hell will freeze " - were given the name because Henley was known for saying that after separation they would band back together " when hell freezes over " - for an MTV special .

They began their Hell Freezes Over tour on May 27 , and spent most of the next two years on the walk , performing some of his most beloved songs, including " Tequila Sunrise ' and' Lyin Eyes ' . 'Your Live ' Hell Freezes Over ' album was released on November 8, 1994, and includes the No. 1 hit, "Love Will Keep Us Alive ‘.

From ' Hell Freezes Over ‘, the Eagles have maintained a band of touring and recording, releasing several albums since, including the 2003 record, ' The Very Best Of “, which sold over five million units in the United States, and a new double album, " Long Road out of Eden ' in 2007. Felder spent seven years with the group before it was fired from the band in 2001.
