There was anything but heartache as Bob Seger made a surprise appearance with the Eagles on Saturday night, July 15, in Los Angeles.
Seger joined the group -- playing its first show since the January 2016 death of co-founder and Royal Oak native Glenn Frey -- for "Heartache Tonight," the chart-topping 1979 Eagles hit he co-wrote. Seger previously sang the song in tribute to Frey and the band during December at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C.
The Eagles also featured Frey's son Deacon Frey and Vince Gill, who between them covered the late Frey's lead vocals on seven of the show's 23 songs. The concert at Dodger Stadium was part of the Classic West festival which featured Steely Dan and the Doobie Brothers on Saturday and finishes with Fleetwood Mac, Journey and Earth, Wind & Fire on Sunday, July 16. A Classic East festival will be held July 29-30 in New York; There's no word on if Seger will appear with the Eagles again there.
Seger and his Silver Bullet band are currently preparing for their Runaway Train Tour, which kicks off Aug. 24 in Toledo and includes shows Sept. 9 at the DTE Energy Music Theatre and Sept. 23 at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Seger has also been working on a new album in Nashville, though no release details have been announced yet.
