“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 Eagles and Steely Dan said in a joint statement.

The statement continued, “Credit and thanks go to our longtime management team, our dedicated road crew, and our exceptional backup musicians for providing skilled and steadfast support, throughout these many years”.

“We know how fortunate we are, and we are truly grateful. 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 also confirmed that their farewell tour “is currently in the planning stages”, adding: “We want to give all our fans a chance to see us on this final round”. 

They also added that further dates will be announced in due course, while highlighting “difficulties of booking venues for multiple nights” due to demand. “But, we hope to see as many of you as we can, before we finish up”. 

“Most importantly, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for embracing this band and its music. At the end of the day, you are the reason we have been able to carry on for over five decades. This is our swan song, but the music goes on and on”. 

Last December, The Eagles also set up their own YouTube channel.
