We’ve definitely been hearing ‘Hotel California’ even more often than usual. As excitement builds for The Eagles’ Middle Eastern debut, we’ve heard wafts of the MOR super-hit lilting through taxis, supermarkets and even in Time Out’s very own coffee room. Promoter Done Events has launched its very own Radio Eagles online station. Intrigued? Check out www.eaglesdubai.com.
After calling it a day at the end of a lucrative ’70s, a decade that saw them become the US’s fifth best-selling act ever, The Eagles made an unassuming return to the airwaves with 2007’s East of Eden, a sprawling double disc of new material that failed to evoke the same laid-back LA charms of their heyday. Live reviews of the sextarians’ recent output have been mixed, but we were always a sucker for ‘Take it Easy’ and ‘Desperado’. Enjoy one of Dubai’s biggest-selling concerts ever.
