An AEG Live Production KRIS KRISTOFFERSON and JOHN PRINE Two American songwriters who are an instrumental part of the fabric of American songwriting will be making a special appearance at the King Center for the Performing Arts on May 13th at 8 pm. John Prine and Kris Kristofferson's history goes back more than 40 years with Kris playing an integral part in Prine landing his first record deal in 1971. They are lifelong friends teaming up for a few special nights of music, and this show is not to be missed. Hall of Fame singer-songwriter, Kris Kristofferson returns to the essentials of his finely honed craft on his New West album Closer to the Bone. This release marks the latest works of a distinguished career that has encompassed the authorship of such classic American songs as "Me and Bobby McGee," "Sunday Morning Coming Down," and "Help Me Make It Through the Night" to name a few. Kristofferson's acting career lifted off in tandem with his musical success. A landmark in his film career was starring in "A Star Is Born" with Barbara Streisand, for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. Some four decades since his remarkable debut, John Prine has stayed at the top of his game, both as a performer and songwriter. From his first album on, he came known as a genuine "songwriter's songwriter," one of the rare ones who writes the songs other songwriters would sell their souls for. Now he's back with a brand new live album, John Prine: In Person & On Stage, which contains renditions of some of early songs such as "Angel From Montgomery" as well as later classics such as "Unwed Fathers" and one of the most poignant songs ever from a husband to a wife, "She Is My Everything." Come join us this evening as two living legends take the King Center stage! Join us a 6 pm for our Picnic on the Patio.
