The Hell Freezes Over tour of 1994-96 is still the 16th highest-grossing tour in history, and heralded a new era in ticket pricing for elite touring acts, notably cracking the $100 ceiling for rock bands, selling out every date and moving 3.4 million tickets, according to Billboard Boxscore. Since 2001, the Eagles have grossed $454,620,162 at the box office, with attendance of nearly 4 million fans to 304 shows reported to Boxscore
The Eagles, inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, are managed by Irving Azoff and booked by Jeffrey Azoff at CAA.
