Just ‘rumors’: Eagles return to Sphere speculation

Updated February 28, 2024 - 1:13 pm

Reports that the Eagles are in talks at the Sphere have resurfaced. TMZ, citing anonymous sources, said the band is negotiating a series at the bulbous wonder this fall or winter. But “deal not locked” is the crucial message in the post’s title.

A band rep said TMZ is “reporting rumors,” with nothing concrete to impart.

The story indicates the band is launching “The Long Goodbye” tour this September in New York. The series runs through November.

The plan would be for the band to play the Sphere after closing the tour, around late November.

U2 ends its extended engagement this weekend. Phish plays the venue for four dates April 18-21. Dead and Company plays 18 dates from May 16-June 22. Beyonce has been reportedly in talks to play the venue, either late this year or into 2025.

Riding her country singles “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “16 Cartridges,” Beyonce is said to be asking for the same money U2’s been making during the series, or about $1 million per show.

Harry Styles is also reportedly be on the venue’s hot list of headliners, though energy behind him playing the venue has subsided as Phish and Dead and Company have been announced.
