The Eagles spent 52 years on a miraculous journey performing for people from all over the world; keeping music alive in the face of tragic losses, upheavals and setbacks of many kinds. Thank you to our long-term management team, dedicated road team, and exceptional backup musicians who have provided talented and determined support over these many years. We know how lucky we are and we are truly grateful. Our long run took longer than any of us could have imagined.
But everything has its time, and it’s time 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 tour. Therefore, timing information will be published as dates are determined. Difficulty booking multiple nights may require us to return to certain cities, depending on demand. However, we hope to see you as much as possible before we finish.
Most importantly, we wholeheartedly thank you for embracing this band and their music. At the end of the day, you’re the reason we’ve been able to go on for over fifty years. It’s our swan song, but the music goes on and on.
