We’re excited to share the news that Hollywood legend Kiefer Sutherland will be heading to Exeter Phoenix with his band for one-night only on Friday 2nd August!
Fresh from releasing a brand new album, and best known for his roles in the likes of Stand By Me, The Lost Boys, and A Few Good Men, as well as the TV series 24 and Designated Survivor, he’s also been touring with his music for a while now (I even caught his excellent show at Black Deer Festival last summer) and is one hell of a great frontman!
His latest album, Reckless And Me, comes with critical acclaim and spans country music, Americana, folk, rock, blues and a whole lot more. Speaking about the new album, Kiefer had this to say:
“As an actor I know that making a connection with an audience always comes by virtue of the story or the character. This is very different. They’re personal stories from my life. As lucky as I am, there are things you can’t avoid: friends of yours are going to die, you’re going to be let down, your heart will be broken. Hopefully they help both me and the audience to realise that none of us are alone in trying to get these things in life. And there’s something comforting about that. At least to me.”
As you might know as well, Exeter Phoenix are not known for doing things by halves, and the city-centre arts venue will be making the most of their cinema when the Hollywood star comes to visit. The week will also see a mini festival of Kiefer Sutherland’s best-loved films land in Studio 74, the venue’s independent cinema.
