Hey, music fans,
The Eagles - yes, all four of them - will be landing soon in Houston.
Our old pals Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh and Tim Schmit are going on tour this summer.
It's been two years since their last tour and three years since their last album came out, but I'm excited to hear they're at least still touring and sound just as good as they did in the 1970s.
I know I'm not alone in saying how HUGE of an Eagles fan I am.
We're in for a great show here, folks.
Up until Michael Jackson's death, the Eagles had the highest-selling album in the country.
Now, according to the Recording Industry Association of America, Jackson's "Thriller" album and the Eagles' "Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975" are now tied at 29 million each.
But who could forget the songs that made them legends, like "Hotel California," "Take It Easy," "Life In The Fast Lane," "One Of These Nights," "Lyin' Eyes," and many others.
The band broke up in the 1980s, and reunited in 1994 for their reunion album, "Hell Freezes Over."
This is going to be a great concert, one you die-hard Eagles fans won't want to miss if you want to hear the hits they've written during the span of their 35-year career.
