The Black Jacket Symphony offers a unique concert experience through recreating classic albums in a live performance setting. The album is performed in its entirety by a group of handpicked musicians specifically selected for each album, with no sonic detail being overlooked — the musicians do whatever it takes to musically reproduce the album. The performance is separated into two sets. In the first set the album is recreated in its entirety as a true symphonic piece. The second set opens with an incredible light display and features a selection of the album’s "greatest hits."

“Hotel California” was released in late 1976 and has sold more 42 million copies. Hits from the album include the title song, “New Kid in Town,” Life in the Fast Lane,” and “Victim of Love.”
