Out-of-Town Pick: Take It Eagle



England may boast the Beatles, but the all-time best-selling American band's name brings to mind a much more magnificent creature. The Eagles first soared to the top of the charts in the early 1970s with hits such as "Witchy Woman" and "Take It Easy," picking up four Grammys before disbanding in 1980. After almost a decade and a half apart, the group reunited in 1994 with the live album "Hell Freezes Over." Last year, the band released "Long Road Out of Eden," its first studio album since 1979's "The Long Run," and according to drummer Don Henley, it will most likely be the group's last. Though only two of the original members (Henley and Glenn Frey) remain today, The Eagles are still flying high on this latest tour. The show begins at 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 21, at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville. $65-$150. Call (888) JPJ-TIXS or visit
