The Eagles, who captured the sound of the laid-back, hedonistic Southern California ’70s better than any other band with such hits as “Take It Easy,” “Hotel California” and “Tequila Sunrise,” are back in town Wednesday with a surprise guest — former guitarist Bernie Leadon. Leadon joined the band for the first leg of the tour, which started in Kentucky in July.
The Eagles took August off, and the band’s Seattle date marks the beginning of the second segment of the “History of the Eagles” tour, which supports the release of the excellent two-DVD set of the same name that came out earlier this year. By all accounts, the quartet — Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit — are sticking to the history concept live, re-enacting their fabled story hit by hit.
That approach apparently does not preclude a Joe Walsh star turn, including “In the City” and “Life’s Been Good.”
The Eagles perform at 8 p.m. Wednesday at KeyArena, Seattle Center; $49-$189 (800-745-3000 or ticketmaster.com).
