I can’t believe I’m gonna admit this but I really like the Dixie Chicks. And I’ll be honest I had no idea the Eagles still existed… From a press release:

The Eagles will headline Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, June 15th with special guests the Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban. The Eagles – Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit – will perform hits from their more than 35-year career, such as “Hotel California,” “Desperado,” “Life In The Fast Lane,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” “Take It To The Limit,” “One Of These Nights,” “Heartache Tonight,” and more. The Eagles last performed in Washington, D.C. in 2008.

The Dixie Chicks – Martie Maguire, Emily Robison and lead singer Natalie Maines – will hit the stage for the first time in four years, performing songs from all three of their albums including smash hits, “Wide Open Spaces,” “Goodbye Earl,” and “Not Ready to Make Nice.”

Urban’s career has produced some of the industry’s best known and most loved songs – 11 #1s. “Days Go By,” “Sweet Thing,” Who Wouldn’t Wanna Be Me,” “You’ll Think of Me,” “Better Life,” as well as Billboard’s Country Song of the Decade, “Somebody Like You,” will highlight Urban’s performance.

“The Washington Nationals are proud to host this exciting concert,” said Stan Kasten, Nationals President. An event of this magnitude designates Nationals Park as the premiere outdoor entertainment venue in Washington, DC.”

  • I’ll be the first to say it — I hate the fucking Eagles, man.

  • That’s really a random lineup…. I’d never guess that the eagles and 2 country a acts share a large fanbase.

  • Hey man…can you change the station? I’ve had a rough night and I hate the fuckin’ Eagles.

  • The Dixie Chicks do a nice rendition of Rainbow Connection, which I know because I have a small child. Can’t say I’ve heard anything else.

  • actually the dixie chicks mentioned in an interview that the Eagles were one of many inspirations for their last (a little less country) album. if you listen to their last album you can sort of hear the influence too. I can definitely see them touring together. and they provide a bridge to Keith Urban’s more country music.

  • were they the ones what invented them little paper cups?

  • It’s great that bands will be playing there. Unfortunate that the Nationals will.

  • I’d rather see Muammar al-Gaddafi, Kim Jong Il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than this line-up.

  • It will suck to pay out the ass for an Eagles ticket when I really just want to see the Dixie Chicks.

  • Any idea how to find out ticket prices before they go on sale? Trying to organize group to go and have no idea what the ticket price levels will be. THANKS.
