Gig review: KIEFER SUTHERLAND – The Junction, Cambridge, February 26 2020

Kiefer is now two albums into his country styled music redirection and four years on the road, a very tight band the question is does he cut it? The answer is yes, the type of country Americana that Kiefer peddles is what Bon Jovi tried and I personally thought failed at on their Lost Highway era.

This style comes easy for Mr. Sutherland his voice is warm and his autobiographical songs are pleasant and well wrote. His Hollywood and acting pedigree shines though and is very good story teller and is so engaging that you cannot wait to hear the next song that he had just passionately explained the meaning and inspiration of without being talky.

He’s always smiling and take it from the gig photographer he doesn’t stand still. Three songs in the giant white cowboy hat is off and the songs about drinking and rodeo fly by. Now doubt a large chunk of the audience stem from his past carer highlight, I confess he will always be the vampire from the Lost Boys to me but he really can sing, play, write songs and perform. Star quality shines through.
