Eagles will perform their Hotel California album in its entirety on a 2020 tour. The news, announced today (October 8), follows three sold-out concerts at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada that featured the classic rock band performing their top-selling album, with a 46-piece orchestra and 22-member choir.

The initial 12 dates will begin in February 2020. See the dates below.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, Oct. 18 here.

Eagles – Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, with Deacon Frey and Vince Gill – performed the iconic album in Vegas on Sept. 27, Sept. 28, and Oct. 5. After an intermission, the group played an extensive second set of 19 hits and favorites, plus four encores. These included “Take it Easy,” “One of These Nights,” “I Can’t Tell You Why,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” and “Already Gone.”

Hotel California is the third best-selling U.S. album in history, recently 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 had never been performed since the original “Hotel California” tour. The RIAA also certified “Their Greatest Hits 1971-1977” as the best-selling U.S. album in history (38-times Platinum).

Fan clips of Eagles’ live performances generally get removed from YouTube quicker than newlyweds’ clothes on their wedding night. Here’s one from Oct. 5 in Vegas…
