Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. officials are excited to announce the seventh major show slated for Summerfest 2013. The Eagles will headline the Marcus Amphitheater on Sunday, July 7, closing out Summerfest 2013.

Schmit - will perform classics spanning their career including “Hotel California,” “New Kid In Town,” “Take It To The Limit,” “One Of These Nights,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” “Rocky Mountain Way,” “Best Of My Love” and “Take It Easy.” Hits from band members’ solo catalogs will also be featured during the evening.
