The Classic East and Classic West music festivals finally have a presence on the world wide web and tickets for the July concerts go on sale April 7.
The hotly anticipated classic music festivals feature Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, The Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, Journey and Earth Wind and Fire. On the East Coast, the event will be held at Citi Field in NYC on July 29-30, and on the West Coast the event will be held at Dodger Stadium on July 15-16.
EastCoastRocker.com and WestCoastRocker.com will be on hand.
Among the companies involved are Live Nation, Azoff MSG Entertainment, CAA and Oak View Group.
Classic East and Classic West will be the first concert performance by the Eagles since the death of band founder Glenn Frey in January of last year.
Classic rock has been recognized as driving force in live music, and gained widespread attention since the success of Desert Trip last October. The Goldenvoice-AEG blockbuster concert held in Indio featured Paul McCartney, The Who, Bob Dylan, Roger Waters and Neil Young and drew the 40s-plus demographic.
Nicknamed “Oldchella,” the concert pulled in an estimated $160 million in revenue.
