The Eagles have just rolled out eight new stops on their Hotel California 2020 tour. New dates on the books include additional nights in Atlanta, New York City, and Los Angeles -- with a return stop at Dallas' American Airlines Center set for March 17th.

Just announced gigs have been set for March 26th and 28th at Denver's Pepsi Center; and April 3rd and 4th at Saint Paul, Minnesota's Xcel Energy Center. As it stands now, the Eagles will wind down the spring leg on April 24th with their third L.A. show at The Forum.

Earlier this month, the band wrapped a handful of Hotel California shows in Vegas. The 31-song concerts, which featured an accompanying orchestra and choir, kicked off with the classic album, with the band going on to play a further 23 tunes -- including a few dips into both Don Henley and Joe Walsh's solo catalogues.

In addition to Henley and Walsh, the Eagles also feature 41-year-veteran Timothy B. Schmit -- along with the late-Glenn Frey's 25-year-old son Deacon Frey, as well as country legend Vince Gill.

Hotel California is now the third best-selling album of all time, having been certified 26-times Platinum by the RIAA for sales and streams of more than 26 million copies.

Longtime Eagles collaborator J.D. Souther co-wrote two of the classic Hotel California tunes -- "New Kid In Town" and "Victim Of Love." He told us that he, Don Henley, and Glenn Frey poured over every note and lyric while writing those classic '70s hits: "The polish was the three of us, was Henley-Frey-Souther worrying where every comma is and what sings right. And sometimes I'd be overruled 'cause what I'd think of was too off-the-wall or they wouldn't think it sang great. Y'know, they were both conscious of -- I think Don and Glenn both had a great sense of what they could sing really well. Just the way they had a great sense of what that band could do really well. It's no accident that that band's as successful as it is. They knew what that band could do, and I think they knew from day one."
