The Eagles Soar to The Sphere: Eight Shows Confirmed

A New Residency for The Eagles at The Sphere

Back in mid-2023, rumors circulated that The Eagles would secure a residency at The Sphere. These speculations have now been confirmed: The Eagles are set to perform eight shows from September 20 to October 19, 2024.

This is significant news, despite the fact that Glenn Frey passed away in 2016 and the band’s last hit was over four decades ago, in 1979. The Eagles have remained a popular live act, demonstrating the enduring appeal of their music across generations.

The California Hotel & Casino’s marketing team is likely brainstorming clever cross-promotions. While eight shows might just qualify as a residency, the real question is whether The Eagles can sell out these performances. Surprisingly, bands like Phish and Dead & Company have successfully filled the venue, so there is hope.

The Sphere’s lineup has certainly sparked curiosity, with potential future acts including Beyoncé, Harry Styles, The Weeknd, and the Zac Brown Band. It’s puzzling why there has been such a delay between near-final deals and official show announcements.

The Sphere is one of Las Vegas’s most technologically advanced venues, featuring a massive 160,000-square-foot LED display that offers an immersive visual experience. This cutting-edge technology could attract audiences interested in a unique concert experience, potentially helping The Eagles sell out their shows.

Classic rock remains a strong draw for live performances. The Eagles’ extensive catalog of hits and their multi-generational fanbase provide a solid foundation for high ticket sales. Their concerts often appeal to both long-time fans and younger audiences discovering their music through streaming services.

High-profile residencies like The Eagles’ can significantly boost the local economy. Hotels, restaurants, and other entertainment venues benefit from the influx of visitors. The Sphere’s success with these shows can set a precedent for attracting other major acts, further enhancing Las Vegas’s reputation as a premier entertainment destination.

Here are the dates for The Eagles’ shows: September 20, 21, 27, 28, and October 11, 12, 18, and 19, 2024. Tickets are priced similarly to those for the Sphere’s IMAX movie, “Postcards From Earth,” starting at $175. This price includes all taxes and fees. To ensure tickets go directly to fans, an advance artist presale registration is available now at, powered by Seated. The artist presale begins Tuesday, June 18 at 10 AM PT, followed by a Live Nation presale on Thursday, June 20 at 10 AM PT.

Live Nation and Ticketmaster are treading carefully with their announcements due to a recent lawsuit filed by the Justice Department and 30 state and district attorneys general against them for monopolization and other unlawful conduct in the live entertainment industry. This has been met with a resounding “No kidding, Sherlock” from concertgoers.

The Eagles have an impressive LinkedIn page: the band has sold over 150 million albums worldwide, topped the singles charts five times, won six Grammy Awards, and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. Their “Greatest Hits 1971-1977” album is the best-selling in history, certified 38 times Platinum.

The current lineup includes Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit, Vince Gill, and Deacon Frey, Glenn Frey’s son. Regardless of the lineup, The Sphere’s shows are known for their spectacular visuals, which some bands have avoided due to the risk of being overshadowed by the sensory overload.

The Eagles’ setlist will likely feature classics such as “Seven Bridges Road,” “Take It Easy,” “One of These Nights,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” “Take It to the Limit,” “Witchy Woman,” “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” “Tequila Sunrise,” “In the City,” “I Can’t Tell You Why,” “New Kid in Town,” “Life’s Been Good,” “Already Gone,” “The Boys of Summer,” “Funk #49,” “Life in the Fast Lane,” “Rocky Mountain Way,” “Desperado,” and “Heartache Tonight,” with “Hotel California” as the encore.

For neighboring venues like the Venetian, Palazzo, and Wynn, The Eagles’ shows are a boon, attracting an older demographic with disposable income.

The financial terms of The Eagles’ arrangement remain undisclosed, but U2 received 90% of the box office revenue during their recent run. The Sphere is also working on an unannounced U2 film and more creative content based on “The Wizard of Oz.”

Despite the lopsided U2 deal, The Sphere has been profitable, with “Postcards From Earth” drawing significant crowds and diverting ticket sales from Cirque and other production shows.

The Eagles’ shows offer country rock fans something exciting to look forward to as The Sphere continues to define its place in the entertainment landscape.
