MINNEAPOLIS -- Continuing the tradition of hosting at least one major concert every year, Target Field will host the Eagles and Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band on June 30, the Twins announced Tuesday.

The Twins have been host to several concerts since Target Field opened in 2010, including Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band, Florida Georgia Line, Backstreet Boys, Nelly and Chris Lane.

It's the second time the Eagles will have played at a Twins ballpark, as more than 65,000 fans packed Metropolitan Stadium as part of their Hotel California Tour in 1978.

The concert will be held on a Saturday while the Twins are on a nine-game road trip through Chicago and Milwaukee against the White Sox, Cubs and Brewers. The Twins return home on Thursday, July 5, against the Orioles, giving Minnesota head groundskeeper Larry DiVito and his crew four days to get the field ready for play after the concert.
