The Eagles Announce An End To Their 52 Years On The Road
After 52 years, the Eagles have decided now is the time to say goodbye.
The legendary rock band has been through its fair share of trials and tribulations, especially in recent years. Co-lead singer and founder Glenn Frey passed away in 2016 at the age of 67.
Since Frey’s death, the Eagles have continued to tour in his honor. His son, Deacon, has joined the band on the road.
The Eagles have also been accompanied by country music singer and guitarist Vince Gill. He once described how “surreal” it was for him to tour with the group.
In a statement on social media, the Eagles said they’ve “had a miraculous 52-year odyssey” performing for people all over the world.
“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,” they said.
