Confirmed: The Eagles Turned Down Super Bowl Gig reports today that The Eagles turned down the opportunity to play the Super Bowl and will instead play the Grand Ol’ Opry. How the two are related though, NME does not elaborate.

Joe Walsh The Eagles

We reported months ago that there was a very good chance that The Eagles would play the game (BUT, we never confirmed the gig). We also had the eventual news (first - woohoo!) that Tom Petty would perform instead.
