The Eagles add second Xcel Energy Center show on the band’s farewell tour

12 July 2023

Due to overwhelming demand for tickets, classic rockers the Eagles have added a second show on their farewell tour in six cities, including St. Paul, where they will now headline Xcel Energy Center on Nov. 17 and 18.

Tickets for both nights go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday through Ticketmaster. Neither the promoter nor the venue announced ticket prices. Several presales are currently happening for Nov. 17 and dynamically priced seats are available, including $1,750 tickets for the fifth row. Presales for Nov. 18 start at 10 a.m. Thursday. Steely Dan will open.

One of the biggest bands of the ’70s, the Eagles performed what they said would be their final concerts together in 2015. Band member Glenn Frey died the following year, seemingly putting an end to the group.

But in 2017, Don Henley — the sole founding member remaining in the band — hired country star Vince Gill and Frey’s son Deacon to join a new version of the Eagles alongside guitarist Joe Walsh and bassist Timothy B. Schmit. They hit the road for a well-received tour that included a June 2018 stop at Target Field with Jimmy Buffett. The new lineup returned to the metro for a pair of shows at the X in October 2021.

“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,” the band said in a statement. “At the end of the day, you are the reason we have been able to carry on for over five decades. This is our swan song, but the music goes on and on.”

The Eagles’ statement also made it clear the group will play several shows in each market, depending on demand, and that they expect the tour to stretch into 2025.

“The difficulties of booking venues for multiple nights may require us to return to certain cities,” the band said, suggesting it’s possible they could return to the metro at another point beyond November.
