Interview with Joe in Las Vegas where he is performing.

He talks about the 40th anniversary of Hotel California:
Quote:
The classic Eagles album “Hotel California” is coming out as a 40th anniversary deluxe edition this month, just in time for the holidays. How has the way you think about the album changed over the years? I think when it was done, after we spent just under a year working on it, we had lost our perspective on it but knew it was pretty darn good. We had no idea it was going to affect that many people. It was unheard of. We were amazed. It really turned into a big deal. I’m so proud to have been part of creating that album because a lot of musicians never get to experience that. “Grateful” is a better word. But when we were doing the Eagles documentary, we went into the vault where we tried to keep everything and found a whole concert we recorded we didn’t even know we had. So that’s part of the big box. It’s great to watch. I can’t believe how young we are — I don’t even remember being that young. But we played our asses off. I think that’s the part of the repackaging that makes it juicy.
Also big news about an upcoming Eagles + Guests tour in 2018:
Quote:
You also played some Eagles shows recently with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey, Glenn’s son. Are you planning more? Yes we are. You know, we had to try. We didn’t know if we could do it, so we had to try. Glenn’s son said okay and stepped up, he’s 23 and he’s great. He doesn’t know he’s great but he’s great, and that really helped us spiritually. Then we got Vince Gill and he filled in that ghost voice in the harmonies, and he’s a brilliant musician. So we rehearsed and I was really nervous about, but we played a couple shows and got great reviews and it just felt right onstage. It felt great. So we took a deep breath and recommitted and yes, next year we’re going to play between 40 and 50 shows. It sure feels good to play our music for people again, and they know the words better than we do.

So Delilah, unless I read that incorrectly it reads as if there is concert video footage that is going to be included in the new release.

Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Hmmmm, they've declared forever that they never saved anything and there was no vault! As if I really believed that!

And 50 shows next year? Wow!

Well, Joe, I hope you all enjoy it and anyone else that's going to go. I just can't and more than likely, never will. It's just not the same. I'll listen to my recordings from the past.

TBH, I’m not sure what he means. It sounds like they found a “whole concert” (i.e. ‘77 Capital Centre) when they were making the documentary. But then he says it’s “part of the big box.” Maybe by “big box” he meant the HOTE dvd set. I am intrigued he said a “whole concert” which to me sounds like more than 8 songs.

I know Brooke, right. Maybe they forgot there was a vault!

Joe says 50 shows, Irving is saying a few stadium dates. So I’m guessing most of those 40-50 dates will be in arenas and such.

Thank you for your well wishes. I agree it’s not the same and never will be.

That long denied vault !!!! We all knew they had footage/concerts stored away. So Joe finally confirmed it.
I bet there is tons more concert footage they have stored away, including that whole CC concert. I also bet they have film of the HOTE Tour. They apparently did record every concert to play back and study before the next show.

I could be wrong, but it sounds to me like Joe is talking about the Capital Center Concert released with the HOTE dvd. If I remember correctly, the CC concert was filmed as part of what was supposed to be a documentary on the band. It of course did not happen until 36 years later. JMHO, but Don and Irving have known about that vault since the day the first taped footage was placed in there.

I would guess most concerts will be at indoor arenas as stadiums are at the mercy of the weather. We are talking about three 70 year-olds who would have to possibly play in rain, heat and humidity.

I am not surprised they want to keep touring but can not imagine what possesed them to book 40-50 shows next year. Jimmy Buffet who per Azoff they've been paired with for a couple of concerts in Colorado tours every year with between 20-30 shows booked. I last saw Jimmy Buffet in Honolulu in 2000, loved the show but just not a big fan. As for the Eagles I am at peace with saying goodbye in 2015 when I last saw them not knowing it would be the last time and relying on my record collection to enjoy.

I think it'd be a serious blast from the past to see a recording of the entire CC concert, one of my personal favorites that's for sure!

I said I wasn't surprised the band would want to continue touring but never did I imagine they'd commit themselves to 40-50 concerts next year. Azoff pairing them with Buffet also not a surprise but now I'm wondering who else from his roster of classic bands and artists he may tap.

I thought they might play a few shows but I didn’t imagine 40-50! I wondered if maybe Joe misspoke. It averages to about 3-4 shows a month, though, which doesn’t seem quite as much although I doubt they’ll be touring the whole year through. Plus he’s committed to at least 2 VetsAids shows a year
