The Eagles' 2018 tour is being commemorated with the live album and concert special "Live From The Forum MMXVIII."

Taken from three nights of shows at the Forum in Los Angeles in September 2018, the concert will air at 8 p.m. ET July 5 on ESPN with an introduction by the network’s Chris Berman.

“Sports and music have long been at the top of the list for being able to bring people of all types together. The Eagles have been doing just that for almost half a century,” said Berman. “We at ESPN are thrilled beyond belief to share this premiere with everyone! What a wonderful way to cap off the holiday weekend!”

The concerts have also been compiled for a 26-song live album, which will be released Oct. 16 on CD, vinyl and streaming platforms, as well as a Blu-Ray package. The band’s performances included mega-hits “Hotel California,” “Take It Easy,” “Life In The Fast Lane” and “Desperado,” as well as album tracks “Ol’ 55” and “Those Shoes.”

The tour included Vince Gill and Deacon Frey joining Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit – the same lineup that played Atlanta's State Farm Arena in February. 

All formats of the concert can be pre-ordered now at www.eagles.com and www.rhino.com.
