1994: After a 14 year hiatus, the rock band The Eagles reunite for a show in Burbank, Calif., closing the show with "Desperado." The show, and a second performance the following night, was recorded for a live album and concert film titled "Hell Freezes Over," a reference to Don Henley's retort in the 1980s when asked about a potential band reunion. The Eagles soon launched a tour of the same name, which would last from 1994–96 and became one of the most successful tours in music history.
