Kris Kristofferson and The Strangers are returning to the stage for a whopping 15 shows
Legendary country music star Kris Kristofferson has made Aussie country fans very happy with the announcement of his new tour. The Kris Kristofferson & The Strangers tour kicks off in Adelaide on September 17th before heading up on the east coast.
Kristofferson has accomplished a lot in his lifetime, including recording over 30 albums through his career and becoming a three-time Grammy award winner.
For fans who might’ve seen him in the past, Kristofferson has decided to perform lately in a solo acousting setting which puts the focus back on his wide range of songs.
Some popular tracks include, A Moment of Forever (1995), The Austin Sessions (1999) and Closer to the Bone (2009).
Many fans will have become familiar with him after his Golden Globe award winning performance in the 1976 version of A Star is Born with Barbara Streisand. The pair recently reunited back in April.
Kristofferson has taken a more intimate approach to his concerts as of late, as he has been touring for more than thirty years.View this post on Instagram
"There's an honesty in the sparseness. It feels like direct communication to the listener," he says. "I still have more fun when I'm with the band, but being alone is freer, somehow. It's like being an old blues guy, just completely stripped away.”
However, Kristofferson will be accompanied on stage by The Strangers, who are best known as the back-up band for singer-songwriter Merle Haggard.
The 83-year-old has shown no signs of slowing down with this 17-date tour, and music fans will not want to miss the opportunity to see this Country Music Hall of Fame singer and The Strangers perform live on stage.
