The timeless tunes of the Eagles are set for a revival on stages across New Zealand when tribute concert Hotel California The Eagles Experience tours, performs October through December this year.
The long-established show, which was on hiatus for the past few years, has been recently recast, redesigned and reinvigorated to return to stages again in 2021, just as "retro" music is making a resurgence worldwide.
"We've all been saturated by digital music and media during the pandemic, and there is definitely a thirst for the realness and familiarity of older classic music now," says producer Johnny Van Grinsven.
The impressive new international cast, which includes multi-talented young musicians from New Zealand, Australia and South Africa, was carefully selected by Van Grinsven who aimed to "do proper justice to that incredible musicianship and the perfect harmonies that made the Eagles so iconic".
