The second round of artists announced for the evening feature Joe Walsh from the legendary rock band the Eagles, along with Slot Machine, the rock superstars from Thailand.

The Eagles are an internationally acclaimed group propelled to stardom by hits such as “Hotel California” and “Desperado,” amassing over 120 million albums sold worldwide. Walsh is known for his intelligent, and sometimes eccentric guitar work, electrifying audience members with his stage performances and producing an extensive volume of solo work. Walsh has also earned a place on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.

Since their debut, Thai rock stars Slot Machine have cultivated an ever-increasing fan base backed by hit songs and a powerful stage presence. The band provided the official anthem for the 2012 FIFA Futsal World Cup, and shared the stage with Linkin Park during their Bangkok performance. The group is slated to appear in this year’s Fuji Rock Festival, and has already attracted the attention of rock connoisseurs from around the globe.

These two legendary artists are a welcome addition to the Classic Rock Awards 2016.
