Nearly 43 years after its release, the Eagles will perform their 1976 smash-hit album Hotel California in its entirety.

The news was revealed in an official press release posted to the band’s website.

The Eagles — Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, along with Vince Gill and the late Glenn Frey‘s son, Deacon Frey — will play the seminal record in full for two nights only at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.

These will be the Eagles’ only North American performances in 2019. Currently, the band has no plans to extend its Hotel California tour or play any concerts dates afterward.
