Six-time GRAMMY® Award winners and one of the most successful rock groups of all-time, the Eagles, will perform at the Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center (WESC) on Thursday, Oct. 18. Tickets for “An Evening with the Eagles” at Milwaukee’s newest world-class arena will go on sale to the general public on Friday, Feb. 16, at 10 a.m. and can be purchased here.
“We’re excited to welcome one of the all-time legendary rock bands to Milwaukee and the WESC in October,” said WESC General Manager and Head of Programming Raj Saha.
The Eagles – Don Henley, Joe Walsh & Timothy B. Schmit, with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey – are one of the most influential and commercially successful American rock bands of all-time. With their profound lyrics, soaring harmonies and country-tinged melodies, they created a signature Southern California sound. The Eagles have sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, have scored six #1 albums and have topped the singles charts five times. The Eagles have performed sold-out concert tours worldwide throughout their career. The band’s 2014 History of the Eagles Tour broke numerous U.S. box office records and included five sold-out concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY and six sold-out concerts at the Forum in Inglewood, California. The Eagles were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 in their first year of eligibility and received the Kennedy Center Honors in 2016.
