Eagles Reveal TV Premiere Date, More About New Documentary


In the wake of the premiere of History of the Eagles, Part One at the Sundance Film Festival this past Saturday comes word of official plans for the TV debut of both parts of the documentary.  The movie, History of the Eagles: The Story of an American Band, will premiere as a two-night event on Showtime on February 15 and 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

History of the Eagles, Part One runs two hours and follows the band from its formation to its 1980 breakup.  It incorporates archival footage of the group, rare home movies and photos, and new interviews with all past and current members of the Eagles, as well as conversations with Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt and other musicians associated with the band.

Part Two, meanwhile, is an hour-long flick that documents the story of the Eagles’ post-breakup solo careers, their eventual reunion and their ongoing work as a touring and occasional recording outfit.

Meanwhile, revealed some details about the planned DVD release for History of the Eagles, which may hit stores by March 19.  The package will feature three discs, including Part One, Part Two and a bonus DVD featuring performances by the group captured during its 1977 tour in support of Hotel California.

As previously reported, all four current Eagles members attended Saturday’s premiere of the documentary at the Eccles Theatre in Park City, Utah, and they also participated in a Q&A session prior to the screening.  According to, singer/guitarist Glenn Frey confirmed during the event that the band is planning to mount a tour later this year that likely will incorporate footage from the movie into the concerts.  As for when the trek might get under way, Frey said, “We haven’t made any specific plans about when we’re going to start.”
