Don Felder

Editor's note: This concert has been canceled by the promoter. Original story below.

Legendary singer-songwriter Don Felder will perform live in concert on June 23 at the Frederick Fairgrounds.

Best known as a former lead guitarist for the Grammy Award-winning rock group the Eagles, Felder has been described as a true American rock ’n’ roll guitar hero. He brings his signature “fingers” style — a well-earned nickname, as his hands move at lightning speed across the fretboard — to Showtime at the Drive-In, a unique venue that allows music fans to rock out in a socially distanced, drive-in setting.

Felder was inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 with the Eagles, with whom he spent 27 years and recorded “Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975).” That album has sold over 38 million copies to date and is considered one of the top-selling albums of all time. During his time with the Eagles, Felder also co-wrote some of the band’s biggest hits, including “Hotel California” and “Victim of Love.”

“I’m honored and blessed enough to have contributed to and been a part of a very talented mixture of voices, writing, guitar parts and production,” Felder says Felder of the band. “It was a magical, unique combination that happened in a certain place and time.”

Felder has since become a New York Times bestselling author with his autobiography “Heaven and Hell: My Life in the Eagles (1974-2001).” He released his most recent solo album, “American Rock ‘N’ Roll,” in 2019. His iconic double-necked guitar was featured in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll” exhibit in 2019 and is currently on display in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s exhibit of the same name.

Now classic rock fans can experience Felder’s legendary musicianship at Showtime at the Drive-In, with state-of-the-art sound and lighting and local food trucks and craft beverages available for purchase onsite.

Gates open at 5:30 p.m. June 23, and the show starts at 7 p.m. For tickets and more information, visit showtimeatthedrivein.com.
