January 24. The living legend of outlaw country, singer-songwriter Kris Kristofferson, turned 80 last July. This month, the American icon, Grammy-winning actor, charter member of all-star group the Highwaymen, Rhodes Scholar, former Army Ranger, helicopter pilot, and author of such classics as "Me and Bobby McGee," "Help Me Make It Through the Night," "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," and "For the Good Times" makes a rare road stop at the Egg. If you're new to the man's music, his essential 1970s albums include The Silver Tongued Devil and I (1971) and Border Lord and Jesus Was a Capricorn (both 1972), while his most recent outing is last year's The Cedar Creek Sessions. (Pat Metheny jams January 18; Los Lobos howl January 29.) 7:30pm. $39.50, $49.50, $62.50. Albany. (518) 473-1845; Theegg.org.
