They have gone on record as saying that they would not continue as a band after founding member Glenn Frey died, but it appears that The Eagles will do just that.

Frey died aged 67 in January 2016, and drummer Don Henley told the BBC soon after that their last gig would be at the Grammys that year, as it was an 'appropriate farewell' to their former bandmate, adding: "I don't think you'll see us performing again."

Now, however, reports suggest that the legendary rock band will be playing a new festival in New York and LA called 'Classic East' and 'Classic West', with Fleetwood Mac also on the bill.

The Sun report an 'insider' as saying: "It’s not a decision they have taken lightly but their feelings have changed and they know there’s huge demand from fans who want to see them. None of them need the money — they want to make sure the shows are respectful and fitting tribute.

“The band are still dealing with the issue of replacing Glenn and have secretly held talks with some performers, but they are also discussing the possibility of sharing his duties between them.”

One of the touted replacements for Frey is his 22-year-old son Deacon, who is also a musician.
