The Eagles have announced that they will be heading out on their final tour this year.

The Long Goodbye farewell tour will kick off on September 7 in New York, and continue on through to Boston, Newark, Belmont Park, Denver and more. 

While the trek is currently comprised of just 13 dates, the legendary rock band vow to perform "as many shows in each market as their audience demands" and added that “scheduling information will be released as dates are set.”

Joining the Eagles on the road will be Steely Dan, performing as special guest.

In a statement, the LA band declare: “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.

“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.”

They continue: “Our long run has lasted far longer than any of us ever dreamed,” the statement continued. “But, everything has its time, and the time has come for us to close the circle.

“We hope to see as many of you as we can, before we finish up,” they said in closing. “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.”
