The Eagles are one of the most significant bands of all time -- and an obvious choice for our A-Z list -- for a number of reasons.

If you've been hoping to catch the Eagles on tour this summer, you just might be in luck -- if you're willing to drive to see them. The legendary California rockers have announced a limited number of shows for their 'History of the Eagles' tour, which will kick off July 6 in Louisville, Ky. and wrap up in Bethel, N.Y. on July 25.
Last month's two-episode Showtime documentary chronicling the rise and fall of the Eagles will be available on DVD and Blu-ray next month. The band announced today that 'History of the Eagles' will be released on April 30, and include a third disc featuring the group's performance at the Capital Centre in Landover, Md. in 1977.
