The Eagles – Timothy B. Schmit, Vince Gill, Don Henley, Deacon Frey and Joe Walsh – perform at The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville Oct. 29, 2017.

There are more “An Evening With The Eagles” shows to choose from. The band has added five new gigs, including concerts on both coasts.

New additions to the calendar include Oct. 9 at Madison Square Garden in New York and Oct. 12 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

Glenn Frey’s hometown of Detroit will see a return visit when the Eagles play Motown’s Little Caesars Arena Oct. 14 The band played to a sold-out Motor City audience Oct. 27 and ticketing demands for that show resulted in the new 2018 date

Mega-hefty ticket sales for Chicago’s upcoming March 14 show at the United Center means there’s more fans than available tickets, so the band added Oct. 15 at the venue.  Los Angeles also gets an extra Eagles dose with the addition of Sept. 15 at the Forum in Inglewood.  The band is already scheduled for Sept. 12 & 14 at the arena.

It looked as if the band would hang up its touring shoes when Glenn Frey passed away in January 2016.  But with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey performing with Eagles Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, the legendary group has continued to sell out shows across the land.  The band’s two-night stand at Philips Arena in Atlanta during October 2017 resulted in 22,323 tickets sold and a total gross upwards of $3.4 million.  The Eagles’ one-night stop at KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Ky., Oct. 24 sold more than 14,500 tickets and grossed more than $2 million.

Tickets for the new Eagles shows go on sale March 2 at 10 a.m. local time.  Be sure to check Pollstar’s Eagles page for the complete schedule.
