Kiefer brings conviction at Milwaukee country tour kickoff
Actor Kiefer Sutherland’s played a bad boy vampire, a musketeer and counter terrorism agent Jack Bauer on Fox’s hit action series “24.”
But could Sutherland play a country singer…in real life?
That was the big question Thursday when the 49-year-old Sutherland kicked off his first tour at Shank Hall in Milwaukee.
A couple hundred people packed the club, despite the fact that Sutherland has only released one song. And right before the actor took the stage, one fan screamed “Lost Boys,” the title of one of Sutherland’s most famous films.
But by the end of the show, fans were swayed by Sutherland’s abilities. One fan was flashing devil horns during the smoking “Down in a Hole,” the title track from Sutherland’s debut album, coming out in June. People may have come to see a celebrity up close, but Sutherland earned the crowd’s respect through solid songs instead of star power.
