NASHVILLE, Tenn. – After a whirlwind 31 shows in 47 days in the U.S. and Canada, Kiefer Sutherland is taking his Reckless 2018 North America and Europe Tour across the pond for a slate of dates in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands and the U.K. Following rave reviews and sold out shows during his North American run, Kiefer will take his high energy show to such prestigious European venues as Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh, Albert Hall in Manchester, Columbia Theater in Berlin and Electric Ballroom in London.
The tour kicks off June 7 at Die Kantine in Cologne, Germany and concludes June 30 at The Academy in Dublin, Ireland. During the nearly month long jaunt, European audiences will experience the musicality and passion for playing live that have earned Kiefer rave reviews. A riveting performer, Kiefer engages the audiences with his self-deprecating wit and shares the stories behind the highly personal songs that populate his 2016 debut album Down In A Hole, and his forthcoming new release Reckless, including his new single “This is How It’s Done.”
During his lengthy shows, he also covers some of his favorite songs from Merle Haggard and Tom Petty, displaying equal ease with both rock classics and country standards. Musically his shows encompass country, rock, blues and Americana driven by his gritty vocals and anchored by his gift for telling compelling stories in his songwriting.
Though he loves writing and recording, the stage holds a special place in his heart, and for the last three years, he’s toured extensively earning the acclaimed actor a reputation as a relentless road warrior. His primary motivation as an artist is the thrill of forging that connection with his audience through the music. “I couldn’t have imagined the depth with which I have fallen in love with touring. To have the opportunity to convey intimate, personal stories to an audience, for me, has proven to be priceless,” Kiefer said.
Here’s what critics are saying about the Reckless 2018 Tour:
“Now you know the action star is a country singer — a surprisingly a good one…Sutherland balanced his performance with slow and relaxing songs and then picked up the pace with upbeat songs. He performed tracks from his first album and showcased some new ones.”
“There were those who expected the headlining Kiefer Sutherland ensemble to emerge a hobby band lacking depth or soul; rather, Sutherland and his four band mates Tuesday commanded attention individually and harmonically.”
“With his gravelly intonations, he brings a surprisingly soulful and gritty authenticity to his compositions, a sort of bluesy nod to the likes of George Jones and Johnny Cash.”
