A brand new Eagles concert film, Live From the Forum MMXVIII, will debut on ESPN on Sunday.

The 26-song collection, complied from three September 2018 shows at the Los Angeles Arena, will be the band’s first official release since the death of co-founding member Glenn Frey, When Glenn Frey passed away in 2016, many wondered about the future of the Eagles. Happily, the band persevered and celebrated Frey’s legacy

in 2016, and mark the recorded debut of new members Deacon Frey and Vince Gill.

“Music and sports fans have been shut out from live events for more than three months,” said Eagles manager Irving Azoff. “The premiere of Live From the Forum MMXVIII, this July 4th weekend on ESPN, is the Eagles’ gift to their fans. We are honoured to be part of ESPN’s Sunday night programming, the home of such acclaimed shows as 30 for 30 and The Last Dance.”

Director Nick Wickham shot the concert utilizing fourteen 4K cameras. Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit, Deacon Frey, and Vince Gill delivered the goods in a marathon show drawing on every one of their original albums from Eagles (1972) to Long Road Out of Eden (2007) and such indelible hits as “Take It Easy,” “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” “I Can’t Tell You Why,” “Heartache Tonight,” “Life in the Fast Lane,” and “Take it to the Limit.” Album favourites weren’t ignored either, including “Ol’ 55” and “Those Shoes.” Additionally, the concert featured some of the group members’ biggest solo hits including Henley’s “Boys of Summer,” Walsh’s “Rocky Mountain Way” and “Life’s Been Good” (as well as “Funk # 49” and “Walk Away” from his old band The James Gang), and Gill’s “Don’t Let Our Love Start Slippin’ Away.”
