We Sang Every Song That Driver Knew

Kris Kristofferson and The Strangers

The work of American singer-songwriter Kris Kristofferson has resounded through generations of this nation's popular music. He performs works from his massive and notable oeuvre on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 8pm with the late Merle Haggard's band, The Strangers, at Kiva Auditorium. Kristofferson's brightest moments came at the end of the '60s and the beginning of the '70s: He wrote “Me and Bobby McGee,” released his classic album The Silver Tongued Devil and I, appeared at the Isle of Wight Festival and also became a highly visible actor in films like Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia and The Sailor Who Fell From Grace with the Sea. At 83, this may be your last chance to see a living legend, the man who dated Janis Joplin, live onstage, playing his heart out y todo. Tickets for this all-ages show range in price from $33 to $60.
