After more than a century of touring, The Eagles have announced their final tour. The Long Goodbye will be their farewell tour with special guest Steely Dan. The tour will begin at Madison Square Garden in New York on Sept. 7, and the dates announced run through November.

The band announced on July 6, 2023, that after more than 50 years of touring, the Eagles will embark on their final tour. The lineup of Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit, Vince Gill, and Deacon Frey will delight fans in what will be a must-see concert of 2023.

The announcement released several dates of the scheduled tour but stated that as more dates are booked, they will be announced, depending on demand. They hope to perform for as many fans as possible during the last tour.

""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.”"
