Time to make your reservations at the Hotel California. The Eagles will play KeyArena on Sept. 4 – a stop on their History of the Eagles tour. Tickets go on sale Monday.

The tour kicks off on July 6 in Louisville, Kentucky. The tour was announced last month in conjunction with the release of the band’s documentary, “History of the Eagles,” but the Seattle stop was just added this week.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday at the KeyArena Box Office, Ticketmaster outlets, Ticketmaster.com, or charge by phone at 800-745-3000. All tickets subject to service charges and fees.

Here’s more from the announcement:

The acclaimed documentary, “History of the Eagles,” was released on DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, April 30.

Seeking to provide an unprecedented and intimate look into the history of the band and the legacy of its music, “History of the Eagles” is a meticulous creation featuring rare archival material, concert footage, and never-before seen home movies that explore the evolution and enduring popularity of one of the world’s biggest-selling and culturally significant American bands. Fans can purchase the DVD package at all usual music retailers and through Ticketmaster when purchasing concert tickets. “History of the Eagles” is also available digitally at iTunes.com/Eagles, along with all Eagles Mastered for iTunes studio albums.

“History of the Eagles” made its American television broadcast debut on Showtime, earning the network its highest ratings for a music documentary in eight years. “Part One” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah in January to great acclaim. “Part One” made its British premiere on Thursday, April 25 at the Sundance London Film and Music Festival, with festival founder Robert Redford and the Eagles in attendance.

The Eagles have sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, earning five #1 U.S. singles and six GRAMMY Awards. Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 is the best-selling album of all time, exceeding sales of 29 million units.
