Everyone’s favorite rock and rollers, the Eagles, announced what they claim will be their farewell tour, Thursday.

The iconic band has been around for more than 50 years, and have played thousands of concerts, and sold hundreds of millions of albums, but are apparently ready to hang up their guitars for retirement, Variety reported. While many bands have claimed that all of their tours will be their last, it appears that this may actually be it for the Eagles.

Band members Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmitt,along with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey are planning to perform “as many shows in each market as their audience demands,” Variety noted. They’ll be joined on their journey by Steely Dan. Their first show scheduled for Sept. 7 in New York’s Madison Square Garden.
