It was only just under a year ago, back in the spring of 2016, that swirling rumors about a particular concert weekend stopped swirling and were officially set in rock-hard stone: Desert Trip, the huge, icon-laden Coachella Valley music festival, would really and truly happen. The concert, dubbed The Classic West, will be duplicated on the East Coast two weeks later, with the same band performing at CitiField in NY.

The Classic West will be held at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium on July 15 and 16, while The Classic East will take place two weeks later at New York's Citi Field on July 29 and 30.

The first, Classic West, will span two summer nights and feature the Eagles, Steely Dan, and the Doobie Brothers on Saturday, July 15, followed by Fleetwood Mac, Journey and Earth, Wind and Fire on Sunday, July 16.

For all the relevant info, head over here. It's certainly not cheap-and there are no single-day tickets available-but considering that you'll see six bona fide '70s classics, $150 seems a reasonable fee to at least get in the door.

AMERICAN EXPRESS card members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning MONDAY, APRIL 3rd at 10a through THURSDAY, APRIL 6th at 10p.

Tickets go on sale April 7th.
