Artists from the Alabama Symphony Orchestra and Opera Birmingham rock with the Eagles [PHOTOS]

The Eagles 2022 Tour – BJCC Legacy Arena (Bham Now)

Last night, legendary rock band The Eagles played at The BJCC as part of their Hotel California 2022 Tour. The concert featured some special guests, including musicians and singers from the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, Opera Birmingham and many other local artists.

According to Mark Patrick, executive director of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, “38 strings” (violin, cello, viola and bass) played at Monday night’s concert.

“Concerts like this don’t happen often,” said Patrick. “The Trans-Siberian Orchestra or something like that happens occasionally, but to have the opportunity to play with a legendary group like The Eagles – that’s such a high-level musician. It’s pretty special.”

The Eagles also accompanied a number of Opera Birmingham artists.
