These dates are the band’s only European concerts in 2020, after recently performing three sold-out performances in Las Vegas.

Following the opening night, Billboard magazine wrote: ‘The band performed the album from front to back, following with a blazing greatest hits set that had the audience at the sold-out arena constantly on its feet – a 23-song set of solid hits that make up the soundtrack of any Baby Boomer or Gen X’ers lives.

‘With no exception, the songs have aged well, but how could they fail with the Eagles’ five-part harmony and five guitar-approach.’

As the best-selling American band of the 1970s, and one of the top-selling acts of all time, the Eagles have sold more than 150m albums worldwide.
