The Eagles will also travel to Oklahoma City (OK), El Paso (TX), Bakersfield (CA), Las Vegas (NV), Eugene (OR), Sioux Falls (SD), Miami (FL), Buffalo (NY), Dayton (OH), and several other cities. The North America tour concludes on July 29thin Bossier City (LA) at the CenturyLink Center.

The Eagles have released seven studio albums, which include Eagles, Desperado, On the Border, One of These Nights, Hotel California, The Long Run, and Long Road Out of Eden. Their most successful project, Hotel California, has sold over 32 million copies worldwide. The triple-Diamond album features two Number 1 songs, “Hotel California” and “New Kid in Town.”
The Eagles fourth album, One of These Nights, produced three Top 5 singles. Those singles include “One of These Nights,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” and “Take it to the Limit.” “One of These Nights” reached the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, “Lyin’ Eyes” peaked at Number 2, and “Take it to the Limit” reached Number 4 on the chart. One of These Nights sold over four million copies, and was nominated for Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards.
