When it comes to iconic bands – The Eagles have to be somewhere near the top of your list. Pumping out hits since the early 70s the band has continued to be relevant to the music scene and fill auditoriums throughout their long and impressive 50+ year career.
The band today announced a final tour, titled THE LONG GOODBYE – and it will be making a stop at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on October 17th. Steely Dan will also be on the bill.
Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit, Vince Gill and Deacon Frey released a statement indicating that the tour will run into 2025 – they also stated:
“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.”
“With love and gratitude, The Eagles”
