There should be a whole series of concerts, but after that it's over. The Eagles, known among other things for their world hit "Hotel California", have announced their farewell tour. Under the motto "The Long Goodbye", the rock band will complete an as yet unknown number of final appearances.

"We know how lucky we are and we are truly grateful," the band wrote on their website. "Our long run has lasted far longer than any of us could ever have dreamed of." But everything has its time and now the time has come to close the circle.
The official farewell tour is currently still in the planning phase, the band initially announced the first 13 dates of the tour in North America. However, they want to give all fans the opportunity to experience the group live again. It should start on September 7th at Madison Square Garden in New York. According to a report by US industry magazine Variety, the band is expected to tour at least until 2025. They want to "[play] as many shows in each market as the audience demands".
