Don Henley Adds Aussie/NZ Trip To 2017 Tour Plans

Don Henley is following up a run of previously announced U.S. shows in January with a nine-date excursion through Australia and New Zealand. Special guest Jewel appears on all of the new gigs.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member plans on filling his setlist with tunes from his career with the Eagles and his solo catalogue. Henley’s most recent album, Cass County, was released in 2015. Rolling Stone describes the LP as “11 original songs of working-stiff portraiture, broken-love autopsy and sunset-years judgment – along with a handful of rich-soil covers.”

Jewel also released an album last fall. Picking Up The Pieces is described as a “return to the sound of her breakthrough first album, with strong emotional narrative and stripped down accompaniment.”
