Madison Square Garden's Owner Opening For The Eagles

(TeamRock Radio) The billionaire owner of New York's Madison Square Garden says he hopes fans will give his band a chance after he booked himself to open for the Eagles on his home turf.

Jim Dolan, who is friends with Eagles mainman Joe Walsh, has lined up JD & The Straight Shot to support the group on September 18 at the iconic venue.

Dolan also owns the New York Knicks basketball team and the city's Rangers ice hockey side and says he wants fans to listen to his music, which is known for taking pot-shots at politicians.

He tells the New York Post: "I worry about the other ways that people know me. I worry that they aren't going to listen to the music. Are they going to look at the music and go, 'I don't like how the Knicks are doing this year?'

"You are definitely putting it out there and making yourself vulnerable and susceptible to criticism. And since it's so personal, you run the risk of being hurt."
