The Eagles' Don Henley will extend his 2017 solo tour with a fresh set of North American dates this June. The trek begins June 6th at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston, Massachusetts and wraps June 18th at the Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Henley will also play a special 70th birthday concert at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas July 22nd.

JD and the Straight Shot will open for Henley during his eight-date June trek. Tickets are currently on sale via Henley's website.

Henley's 70th birthday gig in Dallas will feature several special as-yet-unannounced guests and boast a setlist that includes selections from the musician's output with the Eagles and as a solo artist. Henley is also offering a limited number of travel packages for the concert that include tickets to the gig plus an additional event with the musician.

Along with his solo trek, Henley will play two gigs with the Eagles, Classic East and West, a new bi-coastal festival taking place in Los Angeles and New York, July 15th and 29th, respectively. The gigs notably mark the Eagles' first shows without founding member Glenn Frey, who died last January. Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers, Journey and Earth, Wind & Fire are also set to perform.
