Eagles to play private London gig
The Eagles
Their new album will be the first record of new music in 28 years
Classic rock band The Eagles are to play a one-off private gig in London at a 2,300-capacity venue.

Tickets, which are reported to cost up to 950 plus VAT, will not be available to the public - only to invited members of the music industry.

A spokeswoman for the event said the "once in a lifetime gig" had been set up to coincide with the launch of their new album, Long Road Out of Eden.

It will take place in the Indigo venue inside the O2 arena on 31 October.

Some of the tickets will include hospitality packages.

The band, who split in 1980, are one of the most successful recording acts of all time.

Their new album, to be released the day before the show, will feature their first new material since Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B Schmit released The Long Run in 1979.

The band, best known for the song Hotel California, reunited for live shows in 1994.

Since then they have staged several lucrative tours and released occasional new singles as part of live albums.
