After more than 50 years The Eagles are heading on the road for what they say will be their “final” tour.

On Thursday the legendary band announced “The Long Goodbye” tour that is set to kick off September 7 in New York.

“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,” the band said in a statement shared with CNN.

“We know how fortunate we are, and we are truly grateful,” the statement also said. “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 Eagles’ longtime friends and fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, Steely Dan, will open for the “Hotel California” music makers.

According to the statement, Eagles members Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit, with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey “will perform as many shows in each market as their audience demands.”

The initial 13 tour stops were announced Thursday and will include Boston, Atlanta, Cleveland, Denver and other cities, culminating in St. Paul, Minnesota at the Xcel Energy Center on Friday, November 17.

Presale tickets and VIP packages for the Live Nation-produced concerts will be available for purchase starting Wednesday, July 12, for all the announced shows, while the general on-sale will start 10 a.m. local time on Friday, July 14.

The tour is expected to continue into 2025.
