July 24th - Victims of Love (Eagles) 

 

While the Eagles may have the record for the #1 (Eagles Greatest Hits 1971-1975) and #3 (Eagles Hotel California 1976) selling albums of all-time (Yes, in 2018 the RIAA officially crowned Eagles Greatest Hits Volume 1 as officially outselling Michael Jackson's Thriller),  hundreds of millions of people have never seen them play live.  A big reason for that is that they quit touring for almost 14-years due to intrinsic personality conflicts and off-stage cohesiveness between within the band.

Victims of Love - A Tribute to the Eagles,  is comprised of 5 Seattle-area music veterans who formed a project to give anyone within earshot the opportunity to hear those Eagles songs they love played live.
