By the time the Eagles released a new album in 2007, Long Road Out of Eden, fans had been waiting for 28 years for some new material from some old favorites. Meanwhile, here in Seattle, we’ve been waiting some time to see the lineup of Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit on stage again.

That wait ends on Thursday, May 13, 2010. The Eagles will appear at Key Arena and will play a combination of classic favorites and material from Long Road Out of Eden. Tickets are on sale now and will run you anywhere from $55 for nosebleed seats to $185 for lower level and floor seating.

In an interview with CNN in 2007 Don Henley said about the new album that, “This is probably the last Eagles album that we’ll ever make.” Sounds pretty final, and the current tour is a short West Coast series of hops from April to May, but then again, Henley also told Rolling Stone that there were more songs that could have gone on the album but didn’t because they weren’t quite finished. The Eagles may take their own sweet time about things – and they’re pretty much entitled – but I think it’s realistic to hope that they view those absent songs as unfinished business and don’t let it rest there.
