Don Henley To Tour Behind First LP In Decade

Former Eagles singer/drummer will release Inside Job on May 23.

Former Eagles singer Don Henley will launch a 29-city North American tour coinciding with the May 23 release of Inside Job, his first solo album in 11 years.

After the May 21 opener in Houston, the country-rocker will play three more shows in Texas, jump to the East Coast, then work his way toward July shows on the West Coast.

Henley's most recent album, The End of the Innocence (1989), sold more than 6 million copies and generated several hits, including "The Last Worthless Evening" (RealAudio excerpt).

Selling albums is nothing new for Henley, who drummed and sang for '70s hitmakers the Eagles. Their popular country-rock sound has made them the only band ever to have two albums sell more than 15 million copies — Hotel California (RealAudio excerpt of title track) and Their Greatest Hits: 1971–1975, which also is the top-selling album ever in the U.S. The Eagles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
