This weekend’s Classic West concert at Dodger Stadium featuring the Eagles, Steely Dan, Journey, Fleetwood Mac, Earth Wind and Fire and The Doobie Brothers featured many surprises for fans of classic rock–including an unannounced performance from Bob Seger.
Seger joined the Eagles for a duet of “Heartache Tonight,” which he co-wrote with the group (Eagles drummer Don Henley told the crowd that one of Glenn Frey’s first recording credits was a background singer on “Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man” in 1968). In addition, Frey’s son Deacon took over on vocals for “Take It Easy” and “Already Gone” while country superstar Vince Gill wrapped his supple vocals around “Lyin’ Eyes,” “New Kid in Town,” “Tequila Sunrise” and “Take It To The Limit.”
Steely Dan’s set went on despite Donald Fagen’s musical partner, Walter Becker, who Fagen said “took ill before he was supposed to come to L.A.”
Fleetwood Mac star Stevie Nicks took a moment to pay tribute to Frey by dedicating “Landslide” to both him and Deacon.
“His daddy would be so proud of him,” she said. ”
In other highlights, Journey took the time to dedicate the song, “Lights” to Steve Perry.
Classic East lands on these shores July 29-30 at Citifield in New York.
