Henley who is in his late 60's is a very unique musician. He was a session player for many famous artists before going on to form the hugely popular Eagles with Glen Frey. This was my first chance to see him outside of the Eagles and he didn't disappoint. He played a plethora of songs from other artists, his solo career, from the Eagles, and also a few from his very underappreciated "Cass County" album.
My favourite moment of the night is when Henley and his band played an OUTSTANDING version of Tears for Fears "Everybody Wants to Rule the World".

I will caution you that this is very much a country/folk album but give it a spin and open your mind up to new possibilities. Click the link below to hear a few samples from "Cass County".
Outstanding! Very large backing band that provided great backing vocals and musicianship. Some of the band members played with Henley in the Eagles.
Great, good times, crowd that got into the show. Diverse age range too!
