The Eagles announce their farewell tour, ‘The Long Goodbye’
The Eagles are giving you one last chance to dance to remember.
Today, the band announced their final run after more than five decades of sold-out tours consisting of over 1,000 concerts and 15 million tickets. The Long Goodbye Final Tour — which launches September 7 at Madison Square Garden in New York City — will begin with 13 initial shows throughout September, October, and November across the United States.
“The official farewell tour is currently in the planning stages,” The Eagles shared in a statement, hinting at many more dates to come. “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.”
Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit, with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey, plan to perform as many shows as their audience demands, potentially continuing all the way through 2025.
Over 52 years, The Eagles wrote, the band “[kept] the music alive in the face of tragic losses, upheavals and setbacks of many kinds.” They continued, “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.”
Steely Dan will be joining The Eagles on these historic shows, commemorating their own 50-plus-year career.
“Most importantly, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for embracing this band and its music,” the band said. “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.”
Presale tickets and VIP packages will be available starting July 12 for all announced shows. General on-sale starts July 14 at 10am local time. Learn more at Ticketmaster.
