Natural Progressions Update – The History of the Eagles tour

Eagles began their latest tour on the 6th of July and this time they will be joined by a special guest, Mr Bernie Leadon.

I visited with Bernie at Sphere Studios, London in 2011 when he was working on a production project with Glyn Johns. When that venture was shelved, uncompleted, I pretty much expected that Bernie would head for retirement so when rumours began to circulate that he would be on this Eagles tour I very much took a wait and see attitude — and I’m pleasantly surprised that it has all come together.

I exchanged e-mails with Bernie yesterday who tells me that all is going well on and off stage so everyone seems to be happy.

  1. Hi there do you think they will come to the UK – Glasgow in particular and if so will Bernie still be with them? What do you think. Alison.
