Soaring to the Sphere? Eagles Rumored for Las Vegas Residency

Legendary rock band Eagles could be taking their farewell tour to a luxurious new home – the Las Vegas Sphere.

The New York Post first reported the rumors, citing unnamed sources claiming the Eagles will perform a 10-week residency later this year. An official announcement is reportedly forthcoming, with Don Henley and company gracing the Sphere’s stage from September to December.

Details on the exact number of shows and the residency agreement remain under wraps. If confirmed, these Vegas dates would extend the Eagles’ ongoing “Long Goodbye” farewell tour. Launched last September, the tour is expected to continue until 2025, with the current finale scheduled for June 15th in Arnhem, Netherlands. For these farewell shows, the band – featuring Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit, Vince Gill, and Deacon Frey – has pledged to deliver “as many shows in each market as their audience demands” (via Loudwire).

While the Sphere remains tight-lipped on the rumors, a spokesperson told the Post, “We do not comment on any artists performing at Sphere except for those who have been announced.”


U2 holds the distinction of being the first band to christen the state-of-the-art Vegas venue with their “U2:UV Achtung Baby” residency, wrapping up a critically acclaimed 40-show run earlier this month. NME awarded the opening night a perfect five-star review. Phish is next on the Sphere’s calendar, slated for a four-night residency in April, followed by Dead & Company’s multi-date residency in May and June.

The Sphere has also garnered headlines for its finances. Reports in November indicated the venue has incurred a staggering $98.4 million loss since opening. Revenue included $4.1 million from the U2 residency and $2.6 million from suite sales and advertising. Wall Street analysts, meanwhile, have predicted a quarterly loss of $1.27 per share.

Only time will tell if the Eagles take flight at the Vegas Sphere, but one thing’s for sure: classic rock fans would likely find themselves singing along “Hotel California” in a whole new way.
