Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, with Deacon Frey and Vince Gill – are bringing their recent, highly acclaimed “Hotel California” performances on tour in 2020 with concerts in Atlanta, New York, Dallas, Houston, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Each night’s concert will feature a “Hotel California” set, with an accompanying orchestra and choir, followed by an additional set of the band’s greatest hits.

The shows are scheduled to begin at 8 p.m., with a brief intermission. Tickets go on sale beginning at 10 a.m. local time Friday, Oct. 18, via Ticketmaster.com.

The band recently performed three sold-out performances of the iconic album “Hotel California” in Las Vegas. The highly acclaimed concerts were the first time the Eagles ever performed the album in its entirety, and featured 77 musicians on stage – including a 46-piece orchestra and a 22-voice choir.

Billboard magazine lauded the opening night concert in Vegas, stating, “The band performed the album from front to back, following with a blazing greatest hits set that had the audience at the sold-out arena constantly on its feet … a 23-song set of solid hits that make up the soundtrack of any Baby Boomer or Gen X’ers lives.”

American Express card members can purchase tickets before the general public, beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 14. A limited number of LaneOne Premium Packages will also be available, including seats, transportation, preferred entrance, lounge access, commemorative laminate and more. Check HERE for LaneOne details.

“Hotel California” is the third-best-selling U.S. album in history, certified 26-times Platinum by the RIAA. After its release in 1976, it topped the charts and won two Grammy Awards for "New Kid in Town" and "Hotel California." Several of the songs from the album have never been performed since the original “Hotel California” tour.

The band’s “Their Greatest Hits 1971-1977” is the best-selling U.S. album in history, with the RIAA certifying the collection at 38-times Platinum.

As the best-selling American band of the ’70s, and one of the top-selling acts of all time, the Eagles have sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, scored six No. 1 albums, and topped the singles charts five times. They have won six Grammy Awards, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 (their first year of eligibility), and received the Kennedy Center Honors in 2016.
