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.
Eagles announced plans Tuesday to bring its Hotel California shows, featuring front-to-back renditions of the classic 1976 album, on the road in 2020.
The tour will hit six cities for two nights apiece from February to April. Eagles kick things off Feb. 7-8 at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena, before continuing on to New York’s Madison Square Garden (Feb. 14-15), Dallas’ American Airlines Center (Feb. 29-March 1), Houston’s Toyota Center (March 6-7) and San Francisco’s new Chase Center (April 11-12). The tour concludes at the Forum, in Inglewood, Calif., April 17-18.
For the Hotel California portions of the shows, an orchestra and choir will accompany Eagles. After, the band will perform an additional set of its greatest hits.
The announcement follows three Hotel California shows staged at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena Sept. 27-28 and Oct. 5. The Vegas shows represented the first time the beloved rock band played Hotel California – certified 26-times platinum by the RIAA – in its entirety. According to RIAA data, Hotel California is the third-best-selling album in history.
On the road, the band has demonstrated similar longevity and success. Eagles appeared on Pollstar‘s Top 100 Worldwide Tours chart six years this decade, including three finishes in the top 10: 2010 (No. 9, $92.3 million), 2014 (No. 8, $86.5 million) and 2018 (No. 6, $166 million).
