By the end of the extended Las Vegas residency, The Eagles will no longer be the “New Kid(s) In Town.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group announced they have tacked on eight (!) additional Friday and Saturday shows to their ‘Eagles — Live In Concert at Sphere’ stint.

Their 16-concert run begins Sept. 20 and now stretches until Dec. 14.

At all gigs, fans can expect an “ultimate connection to the band’s legendary catalog in an immersive experience that only Sphere can provide,” according to a press release.

These concerts likely won’t be the group’s last even though no other dates have been announced for their ongoing ‘Long Goodbye’ farewell tour. When the worldwide trek was announced back in July 2023, the band teased that their herculean run would conclude sometime in 2025.

Further, a second press release suggested “(they) will perform as many shows in each market as their audience demands.”

In the interim, fans can purchase tickets for all upcoming Eagles Sphere shows on sites like Vivid Seats; the official on-sale is Friday, July 12.

Vivid Seats is a secondary market ticketing platform, and prices may be higher or lower than face value, depending on demand.

They have a 100% buyer guarantee that states your transaction will be safe and secure and will be delivered before the event.

The Eagles concert review

According to Variety, The Eagles’ live show “easily competes with the likes of Taylor Swift and Beyoncé for tour of the year.”

The Eagles band members

When you’ve been living life in the fast lane since 1971 (!), a bit of shuffling when it comes to your group’s lineup is to be expected.

Still, to this day, 76-year-old, founding member Don Henley (drums, vocals, also known for the ’80s smash “Boys of Summer), continues to tour with the group.

On the road, he’ll be joined by 76-year-old Joe Walsh (also of the James Gang), 76-year-old Timothy B. Schmit (bassist and vocalist, played with Poco), 22-time Grammy winner 67-year-old Vince Gill and the late Glenn Frey’s 31-year-old son Deacon.

Over the course of their illustrious career, the band has racked up six Grammy awards, performed over 1,000 concerts, and sold 150 million-plus albums.
