Don Henley at Musikfest Sands Steel Stage, August 10 2016

Review by Michael Miller

Don Henley performed live at Musikfest. The concert started at 7:15pm. Drew and The Neighbors opened up for Henley.  This was their first time they opened a show for Don and they were ecstatic. They played until around 8:00 pm and then Don Henley took the stage.

Don started things off with the song “7 Bridges Road” to set the tone for the evening and from start until end at around 10:15, it only got better. He played hits such as “Boys of Summer”, “Hotel California” and “End of the Innocence”. “Boys of Summer” was followed by a standing ovation and Don left the stage. As the crowd cheered, Henley returned to the stage to do an encore including “Life in the Fast Lane”, “Hotel California”, “All She Wants to do is Dance” and finishing out the night with “Desperado”.
