The Eagles fly again at the Classic West

The Eagles fly again at the Classic West

“We are the Eagles from Los Angeles,” Joe Walsh told the crowd Saturday at Dodger Stadium. “We’re back — and we’re back because of our family.”

OK, sure.

Headlining the first night of the Classic West festival — a two-day mega-concert co-starring Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, Journey, the Doobie Brothers and Earth Wind & Fire — the Eagles were performing their first show since the 2016 death of one of the band’s founders, Glenn Frey.

Standing in for the late singer and guitarist was Frey’s 24-year-old son, Deacon, along with country star Vince Gill, both of whom split lead-vocal duties on Glenn Frey’s Eagles hits, including “Take It Easy” and “Lyin’ Eyes.”
