After months of speculation, the Eagles are heading to the Las Vegas Sphere in 2024. The band officially announced a residency for fall 2024.

In a social media post, the Eagles made the announcement. The outside of the Sphere is shown with the band's logo and the Joshua Tree desert in the background. A live performance of “Hotel California” is playing in the background.

Only eight shows will be played during the residency. However, as both U2 and Dead and Company have shown, that can be extended. If there is enough demand, surely they will be back.

“The Eagles have announced a residency at SPHERE in Las Vegas featuring eight shows over four exclusive weekends from Friday, Sept. 20 through Saturday, Oct. 19,” the announcement read.

Ticket pre-sales will occur on June 18 at 10 am PT. Registration is open on the band's official website. Tickets will go on sale to the public on June 21 at 10 am PT.

It's all a bit of a loophole. The Eagles are about to wrap up what they called their final tour, “The Long Goodbye” tour. However, a Las Vegas residency at the Sphere isn't touring.

Currently, the Eagles' lineup consists of original members Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit. Vince Gill and Steuart Smith join them for tours. Deacon Frey, the son of the late Glenn Frey, is a part of the touring band as well. Presumably, all of them will be back for the Las Vegas residency.

Who are the Eagles?

The Eagles formed in 1971 and are one of the most iconic rock bands of all time. After disbanding in 1980, the band reformed in 1994 until 2016. After guitarist and singer Glenn Frey passed away in 2016, the band went on another hiatus. Since 2017, a new version of the band has regrouped and they have been a live act since.

In 2023, the band began their final concert tour, “The Long Goodbye.” It commenced with a show in Madison Square Garden in New York, New York, on September 7, 2023.

Currently, the band is playing a European leg of the tour. The final show of that leg will take place on June 13 with a show in Arnhem, Netherlands.

This gives the Eagles a few months to rehearse ahead of their Las Vegas Sphere residency. It is unknown what the theme of their shows will be. Perhaps they will play a similar setlist to their “Long Goodbye” tour.

Having seen the desert imagery that U2 utilized during their shows, it's possible they follow suit. The Eagles' songs lend themselves to desert landscapes. Even the promotional images for the residency indicate that.

The Eagles will follow U2, Phish, and Dead and Company as the fourth band to play the Sphere. U2 opened the venue on September 29, 2023, and played a 40-show residency through March 2, 2024. Phish then played four shows in April before Dead and Company took over.

Dead and Company are in the midst of a 30-show residency at the Sphere. It will conclude on August 10, 2024, a little over a month before the Eagles get the keys.
