Don Henley got booed at concert

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5604564/


Don Henley pulled a Linda Ronstadt.

At a recent concert, the former Eagles crooner drew some boos — as well as some cheers — and some angry listeners walked out when Henley talked politics. The singer poked fun at President Bush and Vice President Cheney while performing at the Amphitheater in Costa Mesa, Calif., and tried to defend Ronstadt, who was given her walking papers by management after she promoted Michael Moore’s anti-Bush film “Fahrenheit 9/11” in her concert.

“Given what my good friend Linda Ronstadt —” Henley started telling the crowd, but he was cut down as the audience erupted in boos, reports the Orange County Register. Henley responded: “Whoops — Orange County, we used to be able to have civil debate in this country. Not anymore.”

Henley then said that Bush and Cheney should sing his next song — and then performed Randy Newman’s “Political Science” — a satirical song suggesting that the U.S. drop bombs on any country that doesn’t like it. Ex-Henley fans responded by leaving the concert.





When will these "heart and soul" of America (the celebrity entertainers) ever learn?

Cool! Thanks, Don. Thanks for saving Walden Pond. Thanks for working to improve conditions in your economically-depressed home town of Linden, Texas. Thanks for speaking your mind.

You forum members can also support Linden by attending concerts at Music City Texas. Don will perform there on September 14th and 15th.

I don't object to any performer being political or getting political in their concerts. What they better understand, though, is that some people are not there for that. They simply want to hear some good music. People are going to walk out. People are going to boo. If you make a decision to "go there" at one of your concerts, don't whine about it when people don't like it. Simple as that. Performers have their first amendment rights, but so do the fans.

Feh. If someone is tone-deaf enough to want to go to a Henley concert in the first place and then not expect to hear something political, then they deserve whatever annoyance they get.
