Eagles, Dixie Chicks, Keith Urban to perform in Hershey
By CHRIS MAUTNER, The Patriot-News

The Eagles

The classic '70s rock group The Eagles, along with special guests The Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban, will perform at Hersheypark Stadium on June 15.

Tickets are $195, $125, $85 and $45. They go on sale April 26 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at the Giant Center Box Office, LiveNation.com, HersheyEntertainment.com or by phone at 877-598-6504 or 717-534-3911. American Express card owners will have early access to tickets beginning 10 a.m. Wednesday through 10 p.m. Sunday.

The Eagles, consisting of Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, will perform such hits from their more than 35-year career 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 band, which has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, last performed in Hershey in 2008.

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

Three-time Grammy Award winner Urban has sold nearly 15 million albums worldwide. His songs include "Days Go By," "Sweet Thing," Who Wouldn't Wanna Be Me," "You'll Think of Me," "Better Life," and Billboard's Country Song of the Decade, "Somebody Like You."

I would love to go see The Eagles but I'm not going to support the UnAmerican Chicks.

I think the Dixie Chicks are a "negative draw" on the ticket that may leave some arenas less than sold out.

I'm guessing that super lib loudmouth Don Henley fought to get them on the bill.

“It’s either opening for The Eagles or headlining at the Tick Tock Inn.”

Exactly:

“The band made few public appearances until releasing the Rick Rubin-produced studio album, Taking the Long Way, in 2006. “Not Ready to Make Nice,” the first single and video, turned heads for confronting their reputation head-on but did not the single did not well on the charts. However they mounted a North American tour of arenas, titled “The Accidents & Accusation Tour,” but had to cancel and rearrange many of the dates due to slow tickets sales in conservative areas. As a result they added dates in Canada and visited Australia.”

...nothing since.

This is news because Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks trashed Bush, Texas, and America while on tour overseas. That story made quite a splash a few years ago. You new here?

Frankly, I am quite shocked.

You have to understand this is THE MOST CONSERVATIVE AREA OF PENNSYLVANIA. Hershey told Obozo to take a hike when he tried rent out the park.

I am sure that dead is right. They probably had to take the crap to get the good stuff.

Talk about a coincidence. I’m still ashamed that President Obama is from Kenya! Of course, I’m saying this in front of Americans, not a bunch of leftist Eurotrash.

"And this is news because....."

From "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu, c. 544 BC........

"If ignorant both of thy enemy and thyself, you are in peril."

"If thou art far from the enemy, make him believe thou art near."

"Know thy enemy and thyself, and thou canst can fight a thousand battles without disaster."

I love ole Sun Tzu.....his "Art of War" is my personal answer to Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals", Obama's bible.

I think the Eagles and Keith Urban are going to wind up wishing that they’d never made the mistake of appearing on the same stage with the “chicks”.

Well, well, well...

So, Don Henley, Toby Keith, and Natalie Maines are all Bush haters. Interesting.

These people are the worst kind of whores. They know good and damn well that the country music crowd is 99% conservative patriots, who supported GWB. And they're going to play to them anyway.

Trash.

I rarely take a contrary view here and I was hard on the Chicks when the incident happened but wouldn't we do the same thing now that the shoe is on the other foot? I'll tell anyone that will listen what a deceitful criminal 0bama is and I don't care what country I'm in. The man needs to be stopped.

Does it matter that the Chicks' reason they were ashamed of Bush was bogus to us and 0bama's faults should be obvious to anyone? I'm not sure I want to defend that position.
