As a solo artist and (especially) as a founding member of The Eagles, Don Henley was making dad-rock since way before dad-rock was even a thing. The heavily-decorated singer, songwriter, and drummer co-wrote many of The Eagles most enduring songs (see “Witchy Woman,” “Desperado,” and “Hotel California”) before embarking on a solo career in the early 1980s. Since then—aside from rejoining The Eagles starting in the early 1990s for an indefinite victory lap and the group's surprisingly solid 2007 release Long Road Out of Eden—Henley has released five solo albums of solid country-rock tunes, with the most recent being 2015's well-received effort Cass County. Straight up: your chance to see Henley live, in the intimate confines of The Majestic no less, is a chance to experience one of the true legends of American music, whose voice still sounds as gently soulful and deeply warm as ever.
