Su­per­star al­bum yours for the tak­ing

Hamilton Press - - OUT & ABOUT - COM­PE­TI­TION

The ru­mours have been con­firmed. Ea­gles co-founder, vo­cal­ist, song­writer and drum­mer Don Hen­ley is re­turn­ing to Auck­land for a one off show!

Last in New Zealand in early 2015 with the Ea­gles for their sold out tour, Don Hen­ley’s 2017 tour will see him per­form songs span­ning his en­tire ca­reer from the Ea­gles and his vast solo cat­a­logue, in­clud­ing songs from his lat­est al­bum Cass County which was named af­ter the East Texas county in which he was raised.

We have a copy up for grabs as the ideal pre­cur­sor to this much an­tic­i­pated show.

Not only are the 12 stun­ning tracks a tes­ta­ment to Hen­ley’s prow­ess as a vo­cal­ist and a song­writer, there’s an amaz­ing ar­ray of star fire-power as some of the great names in en­ter­tain­ment join with him in pre­sent­ing this se­lec­tion of mainly orig­i­nals with a cou­ple of cov­ers thrown in for good mea­sure.

Look out for no­table con­tri­bu­tions from Mick Jag­ger, Dolly Par­ton, Merle Hag­gard, Vince Gill, Mi­randa Lam­bert, Martina McBride, Jamey John­son and Ali­son Krauss. Wow!

Don Hen­ley, both as solo artist and as a mem­ber of the Ea­gles, has re­ceived count­less ac­co­lades, nu­mer­ous gold and plat­inum records and per­formed sold-out con­cert tours world­wide.

A highly re­spected, pop­u­lar and crit­i­cally cel­e­brated mu­si­cal artist, Hen­ley and the Ea­gles pi­o­neered and epit­o­mised a mu­si­cal style of coun­try, folk, rhythm and blues, rock, and pop and have be­come one of the most in­flu­en­tial bands in Amer­ica.

Hen­ley’s solo ca­reer is equally as 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. A ‘must see’ show.
