    Henley back in Oklahoma
    He plays the casino in Quapaw on Saturday

    In one of only two solo dates scheduled while on break from touring with the Eagles before heading to Europe, Don Henley will bring his solo show to Oklahoma on Saturday at the Downstream Casino Resort in Quapaw.

    Tickets to Saturday's show are $100, $80, $60, $40 and $30 for lawn seating, and can be purchased at the Downstream Box Office inside the hotel's gift shop or by calling (918919-6099 or toll-free (888 396-7876; or through Protix online at, or (866) 977-6849.
    Gates open at 6:30 p.m. at Downstream's 6,200-seat outdoor concert facility, The Venue. The show begins at 8 p.m.
    Henley's made several appearances in Oklahoma over the past year, including the grand opening of the new BOK Center in September with the Eagles, a repeat show there with the Eagles in November, and a solo fundraiser for U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Rice at Cain's Ballroom in September.
    It's as if he's making a second home here.
    "Well, this isn’t exactly something new," Henley said. "The Eagles and I have been performing in Oklahoma for over 35 years. This latest concentration of shows is just a reflection of the goodwill that we’ve built up there."
    Some of that goodwill includes preservation issues, for which the Eagles in general, over the years, and Henley specifically have been noted. "One of my favorite places in Oklahoma is the George M. Sutton Avian Research Center in Bartlesville," Henley said. "The folks there do very important work. They played a critical role in bringing the American bald eagle back from the brink of extinction."
    Henley is a fan of the "Tulsa Sound," a blend of rock, blues, country and rockabilly closely associated with artists like Tulsa's own J.J. Cale and Leon Russell. Bob Seger, who co-wrote the Eagles hit "Heartache Tonight" with J.D. Souther, has ties to the Tulsa Sound. However, Henley is quick to clarify that the Eagles band does not consider itself part of that movement.

    "I am very familiar with the Tulsa Sound," he said. "I have several J.J. Cale CDs in my personal collection and I have great admiration for the body of work that Leon Russell created, as a songwriter, producer and recording artist. "Carl Radle and Jamie Oldaker and David Teegarden are musical legends, as are the Wilson brothers (of GAP Band fame)."
    "For the record, we never broke up, we just took a 14-year vacation!"

    Thanks for the updates Jojo. I wasn't around last night to comment when you were posting, but modern technology is amazing, isn't it? I find it mind-boggling that people ask entertainers for autographs in the middle of their performance.

    I hate to bust your bubble, but unfortunately, "sense" hasn't been common for a long time (if ever). <sigh>.
