The iconic band will be accompanied on currently announced dates by Steely Dan, and Vince Gill will continue to tour with the band on their final stretch.
Gill joined the band in 2017 alongside Deacon Frey, the son of late guitarist Glenn Frey.
When Vince Gill was approached to join the group, many die-hard fans gave him a lot of backlash, which he quickly addressed at the time. He quickly notes that his addition to the band will never come close to Frey’s impact as an original member.
Back in 2022, during an interview with The Medina Gazette, he expressed his gratitude for the experience noting:
“I don’t think the Eagles get enough credit for the contributions they made to country music, let alone the No. 1 and No. 3 records of all time. The impact they had on country music started back in the early ’70s. That became more of a blueprint for how some of the country records got made.
So I realize that and respect that. It’s just been a pretty surreal experience.”
Tickets for The Long Goodbye Tour go on sale July 14th at 10 AM local time. If you want a more elevated concert experience, VIP packages for all announced dates go on sale on July 12th.
While an iconic five decades of The Eagles are coming to an end, I have a feeling these guys will have the demand to continue adding shows for quite some time.
