In the band's only two North American performances this year, the Eagles will perform the whole album twice in performances Sept. 27 and 28 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The group announced on its website that the shows will also include additional songs from their greatest hits play list.

“Hotel California,” released in 1976, is the third best-selling U.S. album in history and is the Eagles’ definitive LP. The album resulted in two No. 1 hits – “Hotel California” and “New Kid in Town” – and earned a Grammy Award for Record of the Year in 1977.

The band incudes Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmidt and Vince Gill, with Deacon Frey, the son of the band’s late founding member Glenn Frey, who  is also performing.

Tickets are going for $179, not including Ticketmaster fees.
