Bernie Leadon Reunites With The Eagles

Jul 8, 2013 at 10:13 AM | Music News | By Rock Square

Although we reported back in April that original Eagles guitarist Bernie Leadon would be joining his erstwhile bandmates on their “History of the Eagles” tour this year, that news was based solely on a single interview with Leadon’s replacement, Joe Walsh. In the months that followed, The Eagles played it cool and quiet regarding their plans for Leadon.

But fans of The Eagles’ original lineup can rest easy now: Leadon is most certainly in the mix.

"Bernie Leadon is definitely on this tour," announced Don Henley in an interview conducted before the band kicked off their tour in Louisville on Saturday night. "[Original bassist] Randy Meisner, if he were healthy and willing, might have been included, too, but his current health will not permit. We are all wishing him well."

And it sounds like Leadon made it back into the fold just in time, because according to Henley, The Eagles’ current tour, which will find the band trekking across North America through late November before hitting the rest of the world in the following year, might be their last.

"This could very well be our last major tour," Henley explained. "Covering the entire globe will take us about two years. The demand has been so strong in some markets that we will have to return next year, because multiple nights at arenas just aren't available right now. Here in the States, we have to work around the schedules of the basketball and hockey teams. So, by the time we get through this tour, it'll be 2015 and we'll all be in our late 60s. It's been an incredible experience for all of us, but it may be time to say adios and bow out gracefully."
