After previously reporting on Phish and Dead & Company residencies before they went on to be officially confirmed, the New York Post once again cites sources indicating a pair of additional Sphere announcements are coming. The latest New York Post report claims the Eagles will perform at the state-of-the-art Las Vegas from September through December and Dead & Company will extend their run into August.

According to the Post’s “sources close to the situation,” the Eagles’ residency will take place over 10 weekends between September and December. The paper did not learn the total number of shows or terms of the deal. The Post reached out to both the band and the venue for comment. “We do not comment on any artists performing at Sphere except for those who have been announced,” a Sphere spokesperson responded to The Post’s inquiry. The Eagles had yet to get back to the paper.

The Eagles launched a farewell tour last year. The Long Goodbye Tour visits the UK and The Netherlands in May and June. The tour is expected to continue into 2025.

Dead & Company previously announced 24 shows at the Las Vegas Sphere. The residency begins on May 16 and is currently slated to conclude on July 13. The Grateful Dead offshoot “have extended their stay by another 10 dates through the end of August,” as per the New York Post’s sources.

An extension of Dead & Company’s residency would explain Bob Weir postponing his symphonic shows at Wolf Trap in Vienna, Virginia. The shows were originally scheduled for August 28 and 29.

All 24 Las Vegas Sphere shows currently on the books for Dead & Company come as part of three-night runs. If the band — guitarists Bob Weir and John Mayer, bassist Oteil Burbridge, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and drummers Mickey Hart and Jay Lane — adds 10 shows, it would mark a change to the three shows per weekend format.

U2 were the first band to perform at the $2.3 billion venue. The Irish rockers opened the Sphere on September 29 and played a total of 40 shows over the course of their residency. The series of U2:UV Achtung Baby Live at Sphere concerts ended on March 2. Phish will perform at the venue next. The quartet’s sold-out four-night stand is slated for April 18 – 21.
