Kris Kristofferson performed with Scott Joss, Doug Colosio and Jeff Ingraham at Kernot Hall, Morwell on 24 September as part of their extensive Australia / New Zealand tour.
The tour has been a great success so far. This night was no different. Australia welcomed Kris and the band with open arms, and they have had a wonderful time, despite the hectic schedule.
Fantastic night, I couldn’t stop smiling. Sadly it couldn’t last forever but it certainly was a night to remember. Kris’s voice was so strong and never wavered and he looked very well.

A quick flip through the photographs taken by the band members shows that they have made the most of their time Down Under. Scott Joss enjoys long, scenic walks exploring the area with his wife. Doug Colosio and Jeff Ingraham have been making time to take in some tours. They are all, including Kris, looking surprisingly relaxed – Almost as if they were on vacation.
Fans have spoken very highly of Scott and Judy Joss – many have never seen any of the band members before this tour. Scott has been doing most of the meeting and greeting. His wife, Judy has been running the busy merchandise stall.
Scott was fantastic very friendly and easy to talk with, as was Judy. I certainly hope that this will not be last time I see of any of them again.
We are confident it won’t be, Patricia – Your country has been so very welcoming that I am sure they will want to return.
The setlist for the evening included a well rounded selection from the Kristofferson catalogue, with some tunes brought in by his backing band, the Strangers, who once backed Kristofferson’s friend (and fellow country singer) Merle Haggard.
