Eagles have announced dates for their farewell tour, The Long Goodbye.
Steely Dan will join them as the opening act. The Eagles’ final trek will kick off on Sept. 7 at Madison Square Garden in New York. Tickets will start to go on sale on July 14 at 10 a.m. local time. The band said in a statement:
“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.”
The Eagles only included 13 concert dates on the posted list but they promised to add more shows based on the demand. The band continued:
“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. This is our swan song, but the music goes on and on.”
Fans can expect to see the legacy members Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit, along with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey on the band’s lineup. Deacon joined in 2017 after his father and Eagles co-founder, Glenn Frey passed away. He left the band in 2022 but returned for a pair of shows two months later.
The press release noted that their farewell tour is expected to last through 2025.
