These performances saw Vince Gill and Deacon Frey, son of the late Glenn Frey, join Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit for career-spanning concerts that also served as a loving musical tribute to Frey, who passed away in 2016.

A performance of “Take It Easy,” with lead vocals coming from Deacon Frey, was shared recently as a preview of the concert film/album:

  1. Steuart Smith has been an Eagles Guitarist for over 20 years, replacing Don Felder in 2001 and he also plays Bernie Leadon’s parts too and Is amazing live. Steuart should at least be mentioned in any Eagles live show reviews.
