The Eagles’ will return to Nashville this week when their “Hotel California” tour comes to Bridgestone Arena April 28-29. The band last performed at Bridgestone Arena in March 2018 for a two-night run. 

Here are some things to know about the 2022 tour.

‘Hotel California’ from start to finish

Jim Ed Norman

The show will feature a start-to-finish performance of the beloved 1976 album that shares a name with the tour.  A full orchestra, led by Nashville music industry giant Jim Ed Norman, and a choir will join the band. Norman, also known for his work with Linda Ronstadt, Bob Seger, Randy Travis and others, got his start as an orchestral arranger for The Eagles in 1973 on the song “Desperado.”

This will be his first time to ever tour with the band. For the “Hotel California” tour, Norman was recruited to update his classic arrangements and conduct the musicians on stage.

“Hotel California” features staple cuts such as “Life In The Fast Lane,” “Victim Of Love” and, of course, the title track. After performing the album, the band will also play a set of their greatest non-‘California’ hits.
