Don Henley has extended his solo tour into June, adding performances in Boston; Washington, DC; Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; Mashantucket, Connecticut; Toronto; Cincinnati; Chicago; and St. Paul, Minnesota. Henley will perform songs spanning his entire career from the Eagles and his vast solo catalog. A full list of scheduled concerts can be found below. JD & The Straight Shot will open the June shows.
The HRAC cognoscenti should take note that the entire Eagles studio catalog is available in both 192/24 and 96/24 on HDtracks, while Henley’s solo catalog is available on the service in 96/24. I’m also somewhat partial to the 5.1 mixes on DVD-Audio of Hotel California, Hell Freezes Over, and The End of the Innocence, but that’s a deep-dive discussion for another time.
Additionally, Don will perform a special concert on July 22, 2017 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas in celebration of his 70th birthday. Several very special guests will join Don on stage throughout the event. Tickets go on sale beginning Friday, March 24 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.com. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets for select shows before the general public between now and Thursday, March 23 at 10 p.m.
A limited number of special Runaway Tours travel packages are available for fans who would like to spend more time with Henley on his birthday weekend, including a ticket to the birthday concert plus an additional evening of storytelling, Q&A, a photo with Don, and much more. American Express Card Members can purchase a Runaway Tours Travel Package in Dallas before the general public beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. through Thursday, March 23 at 10 p.m. Check donhenley.com for complete tour and ticketing information.
As both a solo artist and as a member of the Eagles, Henley has received many accolades, including eight Grammy Awards, numerous gold and platinum records, and performed sold-out concert tours worldwide. A respected, popular, and critically celebrated musical artist, Henley is a founding member, vocalist, and songwriter of the Eagles. Henley’s solo career is acclaimed with such hits as “Dirty Laundry,” “Heart of the Matter,” “Boys of Summer,” “The End of the Innocence,” and “All She Wants to Do Is Dance.” He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, and received the Kennedy Center honors last year as a member of the Eagles.
Henley’s career as a musician and activist continues to evolve. In 1990, he founded the Walden Woods Project, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to protecting the historic woods in Massachusetts where author/philosopher Henry David Thoreau first championed the concept of land conservation. The Project, celebrating its 25th anniversary, has protected vast tracts of Walden Woods from the threat of commercial development, has created a highly acclaimed environmental educational initiative for students, and maintains the most important library of Thoreau-related research material in the world. In addition, Henley founded the Caddo Lake Institute in his native East Texas, a privately operating foundation to act as an ecosystem-specific sponsoring entity, underwriting local wetland science and conservation education including cultural and ecological research and monitoring. Henley also co-founded the Recording Artists’ Coalition, a nonprofit, nonpartisan group formed to represent the interests of recording artists.
Americana band JD & The Straight Shot has been touring nonstop in support of their highly acclaimed 2016 all-acoustic album Ballyhoo!, and are currently working on new music due out in 2017. In addition to hitting the road with Don Henley, the band has performed alongside luminaries such as Joe Walsh, Chicago, the Eagles, Keith Urban, the Dixie Chicks, Jewel, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. South Florida Insider notes, “JD & The Straight Shot’s wonderful harmonies make the melodies even sweeter” and their set is “everything a music lover could want and more.”
