Hoosiers might get to see the Eagles perform in Indianapolis more than once! The band plan to perform as many shows in each market as their audience demands. The tour is expected to continue into 2025.
In a letter to fans, the band wrote:
“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….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.”
Since forming in 1971, the Eagles have sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, earned six Grammy awards, and joined the Rock & Rall Hall of Fame in 1998.
The band’s “Greatest Hits 1971-1977” compilation is the best-selling album in U.S. history with 38 million copies sold. On Thursday, the album — released in 1976 — was at No. 194 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart.
