DALLAS (KRLD) – Longtime Dallas resident Don Henley is having a 70th birthday party and concert at American Airlines Center on July 22nd.

Why would the longtime ‘Eagles’ singer want to have a concert on his special occasion? That’s an easy one, he said.

“I didn’t want to sit at home being depressed. I thought, you know, what would be the best way to spend my birthday … and I thought I’d like to spend it working,” Henley said.
