The Eagles will bring their iconic album Hotel California to London next summer.
For what will be their only European concerts of 2020, the legendary band will play 1976's Hotel California album in full, followed by a greatest hits set, at Wembley Stadium on August 29 and 30.
Tickets will go on general sale at 9am on Saturday (December 14).
The band will be comprised of Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B Schmit, alongside the late Glenn Frey's son Deacon Frey and Vince Gill.
The Eagles recently played the album in its entirety for the first time during three sold-out shows in Las Vegas. There were 77 musicians on stage for the shows, including a 46-piece orchestra and 22-member choir.
The group are known as one of the most successful rock bands of all time. They have released seven studio albums with huge hits including 'Hotel California', 'One of These Nights', 'Life in the Fast Lane', 'Desperado' among others.
At one of their 2019 shows in the UK, Henley described Deacon Frey as "a young man in big shoes and he's stepped up like a champ. I know his father would be proud - is proud."
Last year's show was 44 years since the Eagles first played Wembley, back in the summer of 1975 when they supported the Beach Boys. It was their fifth appearance overall.
