KIEFER Sutherland – best known as Jack Bauer in the drama series 24 – is swapping Hollywood for the open road as he tours a new album of country music.

And he is coming to Brighton.

Kiefer plays the Haunt on February 21, to play tunes from his second LP, Reckless & Me.

The album is the follow up to his critically acclaimed 2016 debut, Down In A Hole.

It sees the London-born artist spreading his wings as an Americana and country rock artist and highlights his gift of soulful storytelling.

Kiefer, son of acting legend Donald Sutherland (The Dirty Dozen, M*A*S*H, Kelly’s Heroes and The Hunger Games), found fame in movies Lost Boys, Young Guns and Flatliners before taking on the mantle of the perpetually harassed counter terrorism operative in 24.

He last visited Brighton last year.

A special edition of Reckless & Me includes the original album along with a bonus disc, Live In Berlin, featuring Kiefer and his band in the German capital.

He says: “We’ve played so many shows over the past five years, to have one of them recorded so that fans who couldn’t make a show because we didn’t play in their particular town or city, is very special to me.

“I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed playing it.”

Kiefer is not only a decent actor and musician. His other talents include cattle ranching and being a professional cowboy – having won several roping championships.
