Loved Kristofferson concert

I was thrilled by the recent Kris Kristofferson concert at the Santa Clarita Center for the Performing Arts at College of the Canyons, having been a fan of his music for many decades. I commend COC for bringing this music legend to our valley and at a very reasonable price.

This was very likely the only chance I will have to actually see and hear this legend perform. I feel sorry for those who were offended by his very brief political remarks.

I would have been both surprised and disappointed if he had not made those remarks, as his political feelings are a part of who he is, and I wanted to learn as much as I could about the real man.

The audience that I saw there was mainly even more devoted to his music than I was, and they showed it with their applause and the standing ovation.

The show would have been different with a band and backup singers, but there is something very special about a one-man act - mistakes and all.

It was unfortunate that he was not able to give the background for writing each of his the songs he sang, but that would have meant less singing. I left wishing it had been a longer performance.

Thanks to COC for giving us this opportunity!
