The Eagles announce ‘Long Goodbye’ final tour: ‘This is our swan song’
The Eagles are getting ready to exit the stage.
The ’70s rockers, famous for Hotel California, Desperado, Take it Easy and many more, announced Thursday they will embark on their final tour, which they are dubbing The Long Goodbye.
“We know how fortunate we are, and we are truly grateful,” the six-time Grammy winners said in a statement posted to their website. “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 band — comprised of core members Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit, along with Vince Gill and the late Glenn Frey’s son, Deacon — said they “hope to see as many of you as we can, before we finish up.” The first set of dates kicks off at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on Sept. 7 and includes shows in Detroit (Oct. 13), Cleveland (Oct. 17) and Atlanta (Nov. 2).
