The Eagles Announce Farewell Tour

At long last the iconic band’s run is coming to a close as the Eagles have announced the first set of arena dates for The Long Goodbye “official farewell tour.”

In a Thursday (7.06) statement about their swan song concerts the band wrote:

“The Eagles have had a miraculous 52-year odyssey, performing for people all over the globe; keeping the music alive in the face of tragic losses, upheavals and setbacks of many kinds.” “Credit and thanks go to our longtime management team, our dedicated road crew, and our exceptional backup musicians for providing skilled and steadfast support, throughout these many years. We know how fortunate we are, and we are truly grateful. Our long run has lasted far longer than any of us ever dreamed. But, everything has its time, and the time has come for us to close the circle.”

Comprised of Don HenleyJoe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit, with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey (who’s returned to the band after leaving his late father’s group in 2022), the iconic pop/rock group confirmed the first 12 arena dates, including the kick off show at New York’s Madison Square Garden on September 19.

While only one show is listed per venue, the band “will perform as many shows in each market as their audience demands.” “The official farewell tour is currently in the planning stages. We want to give all our fans a chance to see us on this final round,” stated the Eagles. 

“So, scheduling information will be released as dates are set. The difficulties of booking venues for multiple nights may require us to return to certain cities, depending on demand.  But, we hope to see as many of you as we can, before we finish up. Most importantly, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for embracing this band and its music. At the end of the day, you are the reason we have been able to carry on for over five decades.”

Expected to continue into 2025, Steely Dan will serve as the opening act, and presale tickets for all announced shows go on sale beginning Wednesday, July 12, with a general on-sale to follow on July 14th.

“This is our swan song, but the music goes on and on,” the band wrote.
