The Eagles hinted during their BST Hyde Park show that it could be their last in London.
Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, along with Vince Gill (who joined the band in 2017), returned to the UK and Ireland this month for a string of dates in Liverpool, Edinburgh, Dublin and London.
The Eagles headlined BST Hyde Park on Sunday night (June 26), with Robert Plant + Alison Krauss, Little Big Town, Cam, Morgan Wade, The Wandering Hearts and Patrick Droney on support.
During the show, Henley said: “In case we don’t pass this way again, I want to thank you all for embracing these songs, taking them into your hearts and your homes – we appreciate it.”
During the 23-song set, the band played tracks from across their five decades, including hits like ‘Tequila Sunrise’, ‘Witchy Woman’ and ‘Hotel California’.
