Clearwater Gig Review 26 January 2020
Kris Kristofferson and the Strangers appeared at the Capitol Theatre with Robert Earl Keen on 26 Jan 2020.
Each song showcased Kristofferson’s gift for letting lyrics tumble out of him, each syllable more unexpected than the last, until they form a perfect stanza: the picturesque scene-setting of Here Comes That Rainbow Again, the devastating desperation of Help Me Make It Through the Night, the precise, playful character construction of The Pilgrim, Chapter 33. If you listened to the words, you’d get swept away in the heart of From Here to Forever, the seductive poetry of Casey’s Last Ride, the earnest gospel of Why Me.
An Extract from the Review
The night had the feel of a farewell, especially the way Kristofferson closed the show: with songs that explicitly said goodbye, like For the Good Times (“Don’t look so sad, I know it’s over …”) and Please Don’t Tell Me How the Story Ends (“This could be our last goodnight together …”). But the hope and optimism he injected into Sunday Morning Coming Down, that all-time songwriter’s-songwriter song about shaking off the night before, made you feel he might not be done.Jay Cridlin
A Fan Comment
It was a great concert. I think that when he decides to stop traveling, he will tell us that it will be his final tour. Until then I look forward to seeing him again.Laura Papineau
