When The Eagles take the stage this summer for the Classic East and Classic West festivals this July, they have a very special guest joining them in memory of Glenn Frey: his son, Deacon.
“There’s going to be an official announcement in a few days, but let’s just do it here. Glenn’s son Deacon is a very talented young man, and he seems to be up for the task,” the Eagles drummer said in a recent radio interview. “He’s enthusiastic about it and he’s been working real hard on it, and he’s gonna do it with us. And I think that’s appropriate.”
Henley said that the younger Frey learned the ropes from the best, “where the father is the master and the son is the apprentice.”
The Eagles perform “Take It Easy”
The Eagles’ performance at Classic East is scheduled for July 29 at Citi Field, in Flushing, New York. Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers also will perform at the show. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com
