The Eagles roost in Las Vegas for Memorial Day weekend

The Eagles' latest tour covers the classics from the band's collection and songs never performed in concert

One of the world’s best-selling bands of all time lands in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 24, when The Eagles bring their 2015 History of the Eagles tour to the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

This is one long tour. It kicked off in 2013 after the band released a documentary with the same name. Classic songs from their career that launched in 1971 weave together with some that have never been performed live.

Over the course of the group's career, The Eagles sold more than 120 million albums worldwide with five No. 1 U.S. singles and six Grammy Awards. The band landed in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.  

Band members' soft rock songs include “Take It Easy,” “Witch Woman” and “Peaceful Easy Feeling” off their self-titled debut album, but the 1975 release of “One of These Nights” propelled the band to super stardom. “Desperado,” “Witchy Woman” and “Hotel California” certainly make the set list in Las Vegas.

The Eagles broke up in 1980 but reunited to produce “Hell Freezes Over” in 1994. Since, the group has toured off and on over the years, even releasing “Long Road Out of Eden” in 2007, their first full studio album in 28 years and their sixth No. 1 album.

Tickets start at $85.

Tickets: Ticketmaster, (800) 745-3000
