Don Henley maps fall solo trek

Recommended Posts

Don Henley will take advantage of a lull in the Eagles' tour plans by heading out on the road for a few dates in support of his recent solo career compilation.

The singer/songwriter/drummer kicks off the outing Nov. 4 in Mashantucket, CT, one of several shows set for casino resorts, including a Nov. 14 performance in Atlantic City. Other highlights include appearances in Chicago (11/9) and Boston (11/11). Dates are below.

"The Very Best of Don Henley," available in CD and dual CD/DVD editions, includes songs culled from solo albums, as well as his cover of Leonard Cohen's classic "Everybody Knows," which originally appeared on 1995's "Actual Miles: Henley's Greatest Hits."

The deluxe CD/DVD version of "The Very Best of Don Henley" features six music videos, as well as four bonus audio recordings from soundtrack releases. Videos including "The Boys of Summer" and "All She Wants To Do Is Dance" are complemented by audio recordings from "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" ("Love Rules"), "The Color Of Money" ("Who Owns This Place?"), "Leap of Faith" ("Sit Down You're Rockin' The Boat") and "Michael" (Through Your Hands"). The set also includes the first Henley song to land on the country-music charts, "For My Wedding."

Henley's most recent solo album consisting of original material, "Inside Job," was released in 2000. Henley also joined with his Eagles bandmates for 2007's multi-platinum "Long Road Out of Eden" the veteran band's first studio album in 18 years.

I'd go see Don again if he came my way - as long as he's not out of line with the ticket price. I've seen him a couple of times. I enjoyed him.

Humm, Fall tour, I'm guessing Lance Morrison will hit the road with him.

Me too Sharon...Joe & the James Gang would be a definite yes for me!

Don's coming to my home town and I'd love to see him again, but I haven't decided yet. His tickets are double of what I paid a few years ago when he came to Detroit with Stevie Nicks.

I'd probably go see him if he played a venue nearby for a reasonable price...even though I've read Don Felder's book...:icon_confused:

However, I think Henley's voice has suffered over the last couple of years. Compared to the Hell Freezes Over concert and the Millennium concert, his voice actually fails at the end of the Farewell I Tour DVD. I can't listen to that DVD's version of Hotel California...it almost feels as if I had a sore throat myself.

I'd also rather go see Joe Walsh and his talk box!

I've already seen Don Henley once solo, that'll do it for me.

I haven't even done that, but that'll do it for me anywway. Loved his voice in the good old days, but I'm not so sure now.... and I too read Don Felder's book, which speaks volumes...

Here we go again... onto the ole gravy traiiin... hate doubled ticket prices.

Henley's tickets are too pricey and I wouldn't have bought them but fortunately they were comped to a co-worker who isn't using them, and generously passed them onto me :). I'm looking forward to seeing him again...I love all his solo stuff as well as The Eagles.

I haven't read Felder's book but saw him this past May, at the same venue Don will be playing, and he was absolutely fantastic...sounded great, had an awesome backup band and played all the classic Eagles tunes to perfection, and some great covers too!

Thanks Beth...I'm sure I'll enjoy it...I'll bring some "throat-coat" for Don :003:

They were perfectionists. I saw Felder in San Diego and I am absolutely amazed by his energy and performance. His absense is quite noticable in the Eagles, to me. Even if they found a good guitarist to play his parts.

Last time we saw Don perform 'solo' he didn't even introduce the band. Lance (Crawdaddy) had just performed a phenomenal rendition of New York Minute on fretless bass too.

We knew who the kick ass bass player was anyhow LOL, but c'mon Don.

I remember going to see Rick Springfield at the Count Basie Theater a few years back. I thought the bass playyer looked and played like someone I knew. Yes, it was Lance....and I had just come back from seeing the Knobs earlier that month. He rocked out as usual!

Back to thread...Lauren (all who are going to see Don) have a great time and let us know how it went.....:)
