You know him as 24’s Jack Bauer, an agent with the Los Angeles Counter Terrorist Unit, who solves cases with his dedicated team. If you need another reminder, 24 is the American TV series on which Anil Kapoor made an appearance before he remade it as an Indian serial that did pretty well – we’re still waiting for the next season, btw! And no, we are not talking of our very own jhakaas star, but of Kiefer Sutherland, the original and very charismatic multi-talented star of TV, movies and the concert stage. What you may not know is that Sutherland is a singer too, and a pretty good one, say critics and audiences alike. In the mid-2000s he co-founded a music label called Ironworks, which has artistes like Rocco DeLuca and Lifehouse to its credit. Sutherland started his own Americana band called the Kiefer Sutherland Band, which melds the rootsy style with country-pop and classic rock.
But more to the point, the band has been touring Europe with a series of concerts for his new album, Reckless and Me…but something forced the tour to a stop. Yup, Sutherland slipped on the stairs of his tour bus en route to Denmark, injured a rib and now has trouble breathing and cannot sing. He sent out a message saying: "I am so sorry for any inconvenience that that I have caused to the fans who have bought tickets. I will do everything I can to make it up to you. Thank you all for your incredible kindness and support. We'll be back on the road before you know it... and I promise to be more careful walking downstairs on a moving bus!"
