After the loss of Eagles founding member Glenn Frey in 2016, The Eagles plan to start touring again with Glenn's son, Deacon taking his dad's place on the tour.

Band member Don Henley broke the news in a recent interview with Dallas, Texas radio station KTCK. According to Best Classic Bands, Henley says the group will return to the road this summer.

Glenn Frey will be represented on stage by his son Deacon who is a very talented guy, and seems to be up for the task,” Henley said. “He’s enthusiastic about it and he’s been working real hard on it, and he’s gonna do it with us. I think that’s appropriate.”

Henley said...“I think it’s the only appropriate way to carry on. I don’t think I’d do it otherwise. Since it’s Glenn’s blood, it’s his son, I think that’s appropriate,” he explains.

Don went on to say...“I thought we were done when Glenn passed away and I said as much, but I was in a state of shock at the time, but we have gotten a lot of messages from people all over the world who would like to see things continue.”

Deacon will join The Eagles for shows scheduled in Los Angeles and New York City this July.
