Over 1.1 million fans have seen the Eagles' 40th anniversary History Of The Eagles shows since the tour's kick of in July 2013, with a total gross so far of over $145,000,000, according to Noise 11. The band's manager Irving Azoff commented, "More than a million worldwide fans attending Eagles concerts the past 12 months is a testament to the band's ongoing legacy, stature and songs, that not only stand the test time, but have become anthems for several generations. The band is releasing this touring data information so that those who follow the concert industry have accurate year over year perspective and not arbitrarily bifurcate the highly attended summer concert season as some charts do."
Among the notable facts about the current tour:
On July 6th, 2013 the Eagles were the highest grossing act of all time at KFC Yum Center ($2,023,625.00).
On July 7th, 2013 the Eagles’ performance at Milwaukee’s Summerfest was the annual event’s biggest draw ever, with 22,672 tickets sold.
Their July 12th, 2013 Canadian concerts sold 150,000 tickets, grossing more than $17.5 million, and include a performance at the annual Newfoundland and Labrador Salmon Festival, with more than 20,000 fans in attendance.
Don Henley told us that the group's core audience has expanded to include three generations. He thinks younger generations come to the Eagles' concerts partly out of love for their songs, but also out of desperation for the lack of good new music: "We think that music is so bad nowadays that young people are curious about what came before, and they come to see what all the fuss was about. And they've grown up with a lot of our songs, because their parents -- and even their grandparents, in some instances -- played these songs to death in their homes while they were growing up. We love to see kids come to the shows.”
