As first reported here last week, the Eagles will kick off their first North American tour in seven years May 31 in Reno, Nev. The 31-date trek will wrap July 20 in Biloxi, Miss., and comes as the group is working on its first studio album of all new material since 1979's "The Long Run."

Pre-sale tickets for the Reno, El Paso, Texas, Portland, Ore.,and Moline, Ill., shows go on sale Thursday (April 18) through Yahoo!, and will be available Monday through Ticketmaster. Fans who buy tickets via Yahoo! will have the chance to win front row seats to a show, and can participate in an auction to bid on a trip to the Las Vegas concert, autographed guitars, and copies of the group's "Selected Works: 1972-1999" boxed set. Proceeds will benefit A Grass Roots Aspen Experience, the Caddo Lake Institute, C.O.A.C.H for Kids, and the California Innocence Project.

The Eagles played a 20-city European tour last summer, and last played live in late February as part of the Recording Artists Coalition benefits in and around Los Angeles. Principal member Don Henley will make a previously announced appearance Saturday in Las Vegas at Tiger Jam IV, which raises funds for the Tiger Woods Foundation and Las Vegas- and Los Angeles-based children's charities. Beforehand, he has shows scheduled in Phoenix (tomorrow) and Tucson, Ariz. (Friday).
