(Shaun Dragt)

The musical tribute Eagles - Taking It Easy opens again by popular demand on August 28 at The Heritage Theatre.

The show, which covers the musical meteoric rise to fame of the Eagles band, during the early 70’s and 80’s and includes numbers such as Hotel California, Tequila Sunrise, Lyin’ Eyes, Get Over It and Heartache Tonight, played to packed houses last year.

Featuring a seven-piece band, the show is the closest thing to going to a real Eagles concert. Expect also to hear Take It To The Limit, One Of These Nights, Life In The Fast Lane, Love Will Keep Us Alive and The Long Run, as well as one or two songs from their latest album, Long Road out of Eden.

This music offering is directed by Dawn Selby and in true Eagles style, features four front line guitars in Barry Thomson, Andy Turrell, Riaan Jacobsz and Shaun Dragt. Andy also features on pedal steel and Mali Sewell on drums.

Eagles - Taking It Easy runs at The Heritage Theatre in Hillcrest from August 28 to September 23. There are three "preview" specials on August 28, 29 and 39 where patrons can get the show and a three-course meal for only R165pp.

Normal tickets prices are R195 pp from Wednesday to Saturday and R165 pp on Tuesday evenings and Sunday lunch-times for the show and a two-course meal. There is also a “show only” option for R100.
