Kris Kristofferson and the Strangers performed at the Logan Campbell Centre, 217 Greenlane Rd West, Epsom, Auckland on 13/1o/2019 as part of the Australia / New Zealand Tour. Kristofferson Auckland 2019 – Some dreams do come true – and to you.
Micheal Crossley was at this gig. Michael says,
I’m a big fan of this guy and his music. I also love his western movies. I would like to see some photo’s of his farm, it would be a great place to raise horses and children.Kris Kristofferson Appreciation Group
Fans were thrilled but surprised when the Australia / New Zealand tour was announced. 2019 was a busy year. Kris and the Strangers had already toured the USA extensively and hadn’t long returned from a touring Europe. Everybody expected the guys would all take a long and well-deserved break.
The news broke, and Michael wondered whether Ben & Noel Haggard would be joining the band for the New Zealand leg. The Haggard boys had other plans, but he lineup – Scott Joss, Doug Colosio and Jeff Ingraham – that had woo-ed Europe (twice) set off with Kris to do it all again on the other side of the world.

Kris with Scott (Joss) adding depth with his legendary fiddle. He’s great on the guitar too, and fans tell us he is friendly, approachable and a real personality.
Kris features on Scott’s latest album – What a combo.
Ah, there’s Jeff (Ingraham) We know that he has enjoyed his time in New Zealand, and has taken in some tours during his time off – they must have been speedy given the schedule. Jeff is the heartbeat, but we seldom get sight of him at the back there.
Doug Colosio on keys (he’s been getting ever more adventurous tickling those keys), Jeff on sticks, Kris being his awe-inspiring self, and Scott adding his own style of grace and class.
Why Me, Lord?
I don’t anybody that hasn’t asked this question in some form or another. Many know the touching story behind this song, you can catch up here.
