Hotel California brings The Eagles to Paducah
Thirty years ago, a band out of Los Angeles, Calif., took the world by storm. With five number one singles, six Grammys and six number one albums, the Eagles made a name for themselves in the music business. Ten years later, after the Eagles had broken up, five men decided to keep their stage show alive.
“We play all of the hits,” Dicky-Lee Dickenson, member of Eagles tribute band Hotel California, said. “We help people relive their memories. Everyone loves the Eagles and knows their hits. They are iconic members of rock and roll history.”
Hotel California will play at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Center. Tickets are $39 and can be purchased by calling 270-450-4444 or online at thecarsoncenter.org.
