Former Eagles guitarist Don Felder is to play a special concert in Sun Valley to benefit leukemia and cancer research next week.

The concert – to take place at the Sun Valley Pavilion in Idaho – will feature a cross section of Eagles hits and Felder’s solo work, and will be part of the Danny Thompson Memorial golf tournament.

“I saw the pavilion and thought, what a great place to have a show!” said Felder. “I proposed the idea to [tournament director] Georgie Fenton. The idea was for all proceeds to go to the Thompson Memorial. Her eyes lit up. Hundreds of e-mails later, the idea finally came to fruition.”

The concert, called An Evening at the Hotel California, will be held Wednesday, August 19, starting at 8 p.m. at the pavilion.

Felder is donating his time for Wednesday’s concert for free. “This group has been with me for three years. We play a lot of corporate and charity events.”

Tickets ranging from $50 to $250 per person for the Aug. 19 concert are on sale here or through the Sun Valley Recreation Center at 622-2135. Tickets for premium seating, which includes a VIP cocktail party, are limited in number.
