    Default Don Henley - Austin City Limits Live @ Moody Theater in Austin, TX - January 14, 2017

    What a magnificent show. I loved every minute.

    I'm going to skip JD & The Straight Shot. Onto the show. I loved how the radios hanging above playing different music and the spotlight is on those radios playing. The audience were singing along.

    Don was in a great mood, very very talkative, and telling jokes.

    I've heard stories of Don being hoarse at the beginning and his voice would get better later on in the show. That wasn't the case tonight. His voice was strong throughout the show. He hit every high note except at the end of New York Minute. I hate he doesn't do that high note anymore. I would think he would kept that in there since he hits other high notes higher than that.

    The audience was very hype which was good. I've been to dead shows and this show was very much alive. The audience were singing alone to a lot of the songs. The audience stood up on Hotel California and Life In The Fast Lane.

    The security was watching us like a hawk. They told us we could take pictures before the show starts, but had to put our cameras and phones away when the show started. I did get a few picture at the end, but they weren't that good.

    When Don was introducing everybody, when they got to horn section, somebody was playing a certain type of music and Don was like this isn't a strip club or something like that. It was so funny.

    He sung the usual songs, but we did get Everybody Knows (which I think he hasn't sung in concert since 2013. His tribute to Leonard Cohen)and Talking to the Moon (which I would had been very surprised if he didn't do it). Since we are in Texas, I think we will hear it in Sugar Land and San Antonio. Those the only two surprises of the night. He did do Best of My Love, Wasted Time and The Last Resort.

    Overall it was an amazing show. I can't wait to see it tomorrow. He came on around 8:45 and played until 11:20. So he played 2 hours and 35 minutes.

    Will, Scott, Steuart, Michael, Chris, Milo, and Lance were amazing. Erica, Lily, and Lara were amazing and have beautiful voices. It was good to finally see the old members who been with Don (and of course the Eagles) since the Inside Job era and of course Scott being loyal to the Eagles since 1994.

    We saw Scott and Michael outside the building and they were so nice. Michael didn't seem so tall in person but he's tall. We talked to Scott for a few minutes. A very nice guy and very hot in person. Lol He still had a beard. I didn't get to talk to Michael, but that was nice of them to talk to us. Talk about luck and running to them and took the time to talk to us.

    That's all I can think of at this moment. All those things of Don is always serious and doesn't smile went out the door tonight. He was so funny.

    Here's the set list from tonight.

    Great review! I enjoyed reading it, and thank you for posting the set list as well. Since this concert was at Austin City Limits, do you think it will be aired on tv at some point?

    That's great, Shun! It sounds like Don was having a good time as well! Thanks for all the details. Hope you have a blast at the next show, too! Maybe you will meet some of the others in his entourage!

    I remembered a few memories from some of the songs.

    Seven Bridges Road: Amazing harmonies.

    Dirty Laundry: He went straight into the song. So nothing said before the song.

    He brought up how the world is going bat shit crazy.

    That Old Flame: Before he went into Old That Flame. He tells the story about people finding you which could be a good thing and a bad thing.

    Sunset Grill: He tells the story of the guy from Europe who owned a burger place. He also talks about you don't get to see the people who makes the clothes, food, etc, but you would see this guy all the time fixing the food.

    I do want to say Sunset Grill sounds soo different. The song is usually synthesizer driven throughout the song, but it wasn't. You can hear it, but its not the main instrument you hear. You heard the guitar mostly then the synthesizer.

    Witchy Woman: I don't remembered what Don said about this song. He did say this is a song from 1972 that he wrote with Bernie Leadon.

    When I Stop Dreaming : He tells the story of the Louvin Brothers. A few people clapped and Don was like you've heard of them. Nobody outside of Nashville know that much about them or something like that. He was picking Erica Swindle a little bit. Calling her a Yankee even though she's from the Amarillo. LOL

    One Of These Nights: A song from 1975.

    New York Minute: I thought of Glenn during this song especially during the line "One day they're here. Next day they're gone."

    Shangha-La: I think a few said they didn't like this song. I didn't either. I would always skipped that song when I play my CD, but it is soo great in concert. Will played the bongos or congas (I can't never tell them apart) pretty cool.

    Everybody Knows: He brought up we lost a lot of people last year and brings up Leonard Cohen. This is a funny memory. As I think it was Will(it might had been Michael) started to play the intro of Everybody Knows on the piano and Scotty hitting the cymbals, the audience started to clap. Don then said you're dragging. That was soo funny. You gonna love Don.

    It Don't Matter To The Sun: Don says they're going to sing in a semi-circle. Steuart plays the acoustic guitar on this song. He doesn't sing with everybody.

    Best Of My Love: He said this was the Eagles very first no. 1.

    The End Of The Innocence: Talked about he wrote this with Bruce Hornsby and everybody should go out and see him in concert.

    The Last Resort : I love hearing the story about the woman who came from over from Europe. As you listen to The Last Resort more and more, you can hear that lady's story in the song. This is such a great song and I was happy to hear it in person.

    He tells the story of how in 1968, Czechoslovakia wanted their independence and Russia was not happy about it. So they send in troops and stop it which was called the Prague Spring. I've never heard of that, but it was a nice history lesson.

    Talking To The Moon-He brings up this is the only song he plays in Texas. Will did such a great job on the piano. Steuart on there too, but couldn't hear him.

    Everybody Wants To Rule The World: He called the song Everybody Wants To Rule the World therapeutic with what's going on today in the world.

    Hotel California: Don plays the little congas or bongos. Whatever its called. Steuart and Chris tore it up.

    Wasted Time: Before he goes into the last two songs. Don brings up how last year has been a rough year for all of them and they appreciated their love, support and condolence. He says I wrote these last two songs with his friend and talented guy, Glenn. I did get teary eyed when Don and Lara sang this song. Don and Lara did a great job. I love Lara's voice. I don't know who else has her voice. Its unique.

    Desperado: All I could do was think of Glenn.

    I do want to say that I was soo amazed at being in the Moody Theater. That theater has so much history and its historic. I would had never thought in a million years I would be in the building where they taped Austin City Limit. It looks so different in place, but the security guy said they take out the chairs and also they can move around more as they are taping. But its a great place to visit.

    I have a picture of me in front of Willie Nelson's statue that will post when I get home from work. Grr. lol
