THE LEGENDARY sounds of The Eagles are set to be recreated in Retford next month as a renowned tribute band head to the region.

Talon were formed back in September 1997.

Now, 15 years on and they are said to be recognised throughout the industry as the world’s definitive Eagles tribute show.

The 15th Anniversary Tour features all the classic Eagles hits from their timeless back catalogue - including Hotel California, Lyin’ Eyes, Take It Easy, Desperado, Take It To The Limit, Life In The Fast Lane, The Last Resort and many more plus Don Henley solo hits Boys Of Summer and Dirty Laundry and One Day At A Time and Funk #49 by Joe Walsh.

Eagles songwriter Jack Tempchin said: “Talon perform the songs of the Eagles with reverence and super-talent.”

“They are all absolutely first rate musicians, as good as any I have come across, as well as being wonderful people. It was a great pleasure for me to meet them and work with them, and I am hoping to come back to England and do more shows with my new friends.”

A band spokesman said: “Although the show now features seven world class musicians (plus a Horn Section at selected venues), it is the immensely powerful vocal harmony and exact musical production on which Talon have built their reputation.”

“Their ability to evolve and go from strength to strength in delivering bigger and better shows year on year continues once again with what promises to be an true event.”

Talon perform at The Majestic in Retford on 25th January 2013. Tickets are £17.50-£18.50 and are available by calling 01777 706866.
