HE'S a Hollywood superstar but he can't get enough of Hampshire!

Fresh from a triumphant set at Wickham Festival this summer, Kiefer Sutherland is set to open his autumn UK tour at Southampton's Engine Rooms next month.

The 24 and The Lost Boys star, who performs country rock and blues with his band, will play seven dates around the country in support of his second album Reckless & Me.

Tracks from his new album Reckless and Me, which reached Number 9 in the UK charts, went down particularly well in the packed Big Top at Wickham and the singer was thrilled with the reaction.

He told the Daily Echo: “The audience was wonderful and this festival is wonderful. It was just a fantastic evening for us.

“I can’t explain why but the audiences we have had in the UK have just been extraordinary and we are so thrilled to be able to play here.

“We played the second album here and it is certainly selling a lot better than the first record."

During his visit, Sutherland also took time out to visit Naomi House and Jack's Place hospice near Winchester where he played a special set.

And he also gave his backing to the festival’s chosen charity Two Saints which does such great work with the homeless.

Back in 2014, hit drama 24 was filmed in Southampton Docks, complete with gun fights on board a small container ship and explosions on Southampton Water.

A deluxe edition of the ten song album will be released on Friday via BMG. Reckless & Me Special Edition includes the original album along with a bonus disc featuring Sutherland’s full concert in Berlin. Reckless & Me delivers his Americana and country rock-infused songwriting style and highlights his gift of soulful storytelling. It's the follow up to 2016 debut Down In A Hole.

"I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed playing it," he added.

Tickets for the gig,on Monday October 14, are on sale now from kiefersutherland.net/tickets
