BLOOMSBURG — Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania will return to the 1970s and ’80s when Hotel California: A Salute to the Eagles performs Saturday, Oct. 23, at 8:30 p.m. in Haas Center for the Arts, Mitrani Hall. The concert is part of the 25th anniversary season of BU’s Celebrity Artist Series and the highlight performance of the university’s homecoming weekend. General admission is $30.
The band Hotel California was formed to fill the void the Eagles left behind when they broke up in 1982. Mixing their talent with inspiration from Don Henley and the rest of the original Eagles, these five musicians reproduce the music of the legendary band. Hotel California performs up to 200 shows each year playing classics such as “Heartache Tonight,” “Take it Easy,” “Desperado,” and “Hotel California,” along with some solo works of original Eagles Don Henley, Glenn Frey and Joe Walsh.
