Don Henley --Outstanding Performance (http://bizxmagazine.blogspot.com/2009/11/don-henley-outstanding-performance.html)

Friday night I had the chance to attend the Don Henley concert at Caesars Windsor..what a great show it was! The sold out crowd thought so too and it was obvious as fans cried out "We love you Don" throughout the show and a few of them even danced right at their seats....Now I have never really followed Henley - - in fact i thought he only had a few songs like "dirty laundry" and "boys of summer" - - but i was amazed to know almost every song he sang in the 75 minute performance! So many songs and all of them had a meaning behind them that I believe all need to learn...."Forgiveness" especially could teach a few people a lesson that life's too short, don't waste energy on being mad at others --forgive, forget and move on...you only have one life to lead so make it count! Don also reminded me that life passes you by too fast, for that I am a little sad, because that's how i currently feel - - time flies by quickly and the next thing you know you are 80! I know I have to enjoy a little bit more time off! What about you!!!!!
Thanks Don and Caesars Windsor for a wonderful night out..

PS when i first walked into the concert during the opening act there was one very rude man who told the band "they sucked" ...i was very upset with these comments, imagine being the band on stage, how hard it was to stay up there and sing! But this individual is the one that should have stayed home -- all performers coming to our city should be welcomed with open arms..if you dont like them, keep your nasty comments to yourself..the rest of appreciate them coming to Windsor!

Well, I am glad the person enjoyed it but his/her knowledge of Don seems rather patchy, to put it politely. BOS and DL? Er.... what about those other songs.....

Well, not everybody who attends a concert is necessarily a big fan. I thought it was a nice review even if she only knows his hits! (Heck, I only know his hits...)

If that's true, PM, we must remedy it immediately! ;)

Thanks for posting the write-up. She sounds like a sweet lady, and it's nice to have an enthusiastic review rather than "pleasant and predictable". I like reading about personal experiences at concerts - it makes a change from the usual media spiel.

I agree. Thanks for posting it, PM!

While cyber stalking Peter Thorn :laugh:, I came across this. Enjoy it before Don pulls it down. Video isn't good, but the sound is!

Ooh, "I Will Not Lay Down" is hot! ;)

It most certainly is. That's one of my favorite songs to see Don perform live. It ROCKS!!!
