We’ve finally got confirmation of this summer’s bi-coastal The Classic East and The Classic West festivals.
As first reported by Billboard nearly three weeks ago, there will be six artists in all playing each two-night weekend festival. The first night will feature The Eagles, Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers. The second night will feature Fleetwood Mac, Journey and Earth, Wind & Fire.
And just as the hype declares, one ticket is good for two nights to see six legendary bands. They go on sale Friday, April 7, local time via Ticketmaster.
Steely Dan, Journey, Earth, Wind & Fire and The Doobie Brothers are all touring separately during the spring and summer. So far, The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac haven’t announced any dates beyond the festivals.
It’s also worth noting this will be the first time The Eagles have played a concert gig since the death of co-founder Glenn Frey in January 2016. They did join with their friend Jackson Browne at the 2016 Grammy Awards to pay tribute to Frey, but Don Henley subsequently told the BBC that he felt that performance “was the final farewell” for his band.
