The Eagles to perform on the Las Vegas Strip in May

24 March 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The EAGLES - Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, with Vince Gill – are returning to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, 28 May, for an encore performance of the band’s three sold-out ‘Hotel California’ concerts in 2019. Those concerts launched the band’s current, 63-date ‘Hotel California’ Tour, which features the Hotel California album performed live in its entirety from start to finish, accompanied by an orchestra and choir. After a short intermission, the band will perform a set of their greatest hits. The show will begin at 8 p.m. and will be the final ‘Hotel California’ tour date for 2022.

Tickets go on sale Friday, 1 April at 10 a.m. PDT via AXS.com. A variety of presales are available starting Thursday, 31 March at 10 a.m. PDT. A limited number of VIP packages, including premium seats, exclusive merchandise, parking and more, will also be available.

The Eagles kicked off the “Hotel California” concerts in 2019 to rave reviews and critical acclaim. To date, the Eagles have performed more than 40 Sold-Out shows in 26 major U.S. arenas, including five nights at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City, four nights at American Airlines Arena in Dallas, and three concerts at the Forum in Los Angeles.

“From the title track — a 6 1/2-minute flamenco-reggae ballad— to the elegiac closer ‘The Last Resort,’ it’s consummately performed…” -Los Angeles Times

“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…With no exception, the songs have aged well, but how could they fail with the Eagles’ five-part harmony and five guitar-approach… (Henley’s) voice sounded as strong and pliant as it ever has, easily hitting the highest of notes, while retaining his trademark huskiness.” -Billboard

“By now the orchestra has been joined by a choir. The Eagles’ sound, with its glowing harmonies, barely needs them, but they add to the sense of occasion – and the delight of the crowd. I’ve never seen so many songs receive a standing ovation.” -Daily Mail

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.

In today’s faddish, fractured, rock landscape, the Eagles retain an appeal that transcends both generation and genre, cementing the band’s role as enduring musical icons. 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 #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, in their first year of eligibility, and received the Kennedy Center Honors in 2016.
