Vince Gill is joining The Eagles for two US Festivals this summer as part replacement for co-founder Glenn Frey, who passed away last year. The band are playing a two pronged Classic East and Classic West festival in New York amd Los Angeles on the weekends of July 15/16 and 29/30th, alongside Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers. Vince, and Glenn's 24year old son Deacon will cover Glenn's role in the iconic line up.
It's not Vince's first Eagles experience. In 1993, top Nashville performers joined together for "Common Thread" an album honouring The Eagles music, where Vince performed "I Can Tell You Why".
