Eagles Confirm 2013 Tour, Doc Gets TV Premiere Date 

History of the Eagles, Part OneLast year, the members of the Eagles hinted that a tour is in the works, but now it's been confirmed.  

According to Billboard.com, all four current Eagles members attended the premiere of their new documentary History of the Eagles: The Story of an American Band, at the Sundance film festival over the weekend. They also participated in a Q&A session, during which Glenn Frey said the band will definitely hit the road later this year, and plan to incorporate footage from the documentary into the stage show.  There's no start date for the trek, however.

Meanwhile, the documentary, which incorporates Part One and Part Two, will premiere as a two-night event on Showtime on February 15 and 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.  Part 1 runs two hours and follows the band from its formation to its 1980 breakup, incorporating archival footage of the group, rare home movies and photos, and new interviews with all past and current members of the Eagles.  Musicians associated with the band, such as Jackson Browne and Linda Ronstadt, also appear.

Part Two is an hour-long flick that documents the story of the Eagles' post-breakup solo careers, their eventual reunion and their ongoing work as a touring and occasional recording outfit.

The planned DVD release for History of the Eagles may hit stores by March 19.  The package will feature three discs, including Part One, Part Two and a bonus DVD featuring performances by the group captured during its 1977 tour in support of Hotel California.
