As part of their farewell tour, The Long Goodbye, the Eagles have announced the first round of shows. New York hosts the tour kick off in September at Madison Square Garden, and the band expects to tour through 2025.

Regarding the tour, the band said: “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 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. 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. This is our swan song, but the music goes on and on.”

Since forming in 1971, the Eagles have become one of the biggest-selling bands and remain a radio staple. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers gave us such classics as “New Kid in Town,” “Hotel California,” “One of These Nights,” “Take It Easy,” “Heartache Tonight,” “Witchy Woman,” “Desperado,” “Best of My Love,” “Lying’ Eyes,” and “Take It to the Limit.”

The band’s current lineup includes core members Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy Schmit, joined by Vince Gill and Deacon Frey (son of late Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey).

Eagles will have opening support from another legendary band: Steely Dan. Audiences can expect to be warmed up by their mega hits “Reelin’ In the Years,” “Hey Nineteen,” “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number,” “Deacon Blues,” “Peg,” and “Kid Charlemagne.”

The first batch of dates are mostly East Coast, so when West Coast dates are announced, we will update you. If you want to see them in New York, Boston, Denver, Cleveland, Atlanta, Raleigh, and adjacent cities, check out the tour schedule.
