Eagles Announce ‘The Lengthy Goodbye’ Closing Tour


Eagles are touring for the final time. Once more.

The band, whose country-tinged rock hits within the Nineteen Seventies like “Lodge California” and “Life within the Quick Lane” made it one of many biggest-selling acts of all time, introduced the Lengthy Goodbye on Thursday, booked because the group’s remaining tour.

The tour — that includes the core Eagles members Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, together with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey (whose father was Glenn Frey, an authentic Eagle) — is about to open at Madison Sq. Backyard on Sept. 7. That’s the first of an preliminary batch of 13 dates totally on the East Coast by way of Nov. 17, with Steely Dan because the opening act. In a press release, the Eagles floated the opportunity of longer runs at every venue, saying they’d “carry out as many exhibits in every market as their viewers calls for.” The tour is anticipated to proceed into 2025.

As longtime Eagles followers know, this isn’t the primary time the band has signaled a sundown run. Again in 2003, it launched into a tour referred to as Farewell I. However there may be good motive to consider they might be nearing the tip. Glenn Frey, one of many group’s founding members, died in 2016. Henley, the one member from its founding in 1971 who remains to be within the band, is 75; in an look earlier than a Congressional committee in 2020 about copyright regulation, he stated he was “within the remaining chapter of my profession.” (Or possibly not. Bob Dylan, who’s 82, is on a tour deliberate into 2024, and the 86-year-old blues guitar hero Buddy Man is on his personal goodbye outing.)

Farewell excursions have a manner of winding on for years, and could be big moneymakers. Kiss did its first in 2000 and has had greater than a dozen excursions since then; its Finish of the Highway Tour began in 2019 and has dates booked by way of December. Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Highway Tour started in 2018 and set to to lastly conclude this weekend in Sweden, with not less than $910 million in ticket gross sales, based on Billboard.
