A special treat is coming for Saskatchewan music fans this spring. The legendary band The Eagles will perform an outdoors show at Regina's Mosaic Stadium as part of Memorial Cup week this May.
The show is scheduled for Wednesday May 17th as part of the Centennial Salute Opening Ceremonies to kick off the 100th edition of the CHL's national championship which runs from May 17th through the 27th. The tournament features the winning teams from the Western Hockey League, Ontario Hockey League, Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and the host team the Regina Pats.
Tickets for the show go on sale to the public Monday December 11th at 10am.
Memorial Cup Committee Chair Shaun Semple is very excited to have the band coming for the event. “The Eagles are one of the greatest bands of our time and having them perform at the opening ceremonies is only fitting to kick-off our national celebration of Canadian junior hockey.”
There is little debate that The Eagles are one of the most influential and successful bands of all time. They have sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, have scored six #1 albums, have topped the singles charts five times and have received six Grammies.
Original Eagle Glenn Frey passed away in January of 2016 so the bands lineup will look a bit different. Joining regulars Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmidt, will be legendary country veteran Vince Gill and Deacon Frey the son of the late Glenn Frey.
