Get In The Van!

February 24, 2010

Yes indeed! The man, Henry Rollins returns to NZ for more spoken word performances.

I’ve been a fan of Henry since highschool back in the 90’s and have always looked up to the guy as some kind of a role model. He speaks the truth and stands up for what he believes is right. Which is what makes his sometimes 3hr long spoken word performances so unique. That’s right, just Henry on stage, with a mic. It’s like Bill Hicks meets Jelo Biafra. The guy is a machine.

“Since I was last on tour, I have been working in television and radio, traveling all over the world” says Henry “And like everyone else, dealing with the changes America – and the world – is going through. I thought America would become a more peaceful place in 2009. I had no idea the country had so many lunatics. There’s a lot to remark upon, of course. There always is.”

If you haven’t seen him before, but have always wanted to, I suggest you get along this time round. You won’t regret it.

Press Release:

When Henry talks about traveling the world, he’s not referring to plush resorts and genteel European cities. Henry’s current and most recent travels include stops in Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Brunei, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, China, and Senegal. These global experiences – like past excursions to such vacation hotspots as Pakistan, Myanmar, and Siberia – not only supply humorous anecdotes for Henry’s talking shows, but they inform his worldview. As Shepherd Fairey’s tour poster bills it, Knowledge without mileage equals bullsh*t.

Amidst his extensive globetrotting, Henry the actor, author, and radio host remains as busy as ever. Henry recently concluded an extended guest run as rival thug A.J. Weston on the FX biker drama Sons of Anarchy. He continues to do his weekly radio show on L.A.’s revered NPR affiliate KCRW.

Henry’s latest book, A Mad Dash, is now available at http://www.henryrollins.com , through his own 2.13.61 imprint. Picking up where 2007’s A Preferred Blur left off, A Mad Dash is a frenetic travelogue spanning over one hundred live performances and the filming of five documentaries on five continents. Henry has also been tracking his travels – and sharing his thoughts on politics and the state of the world
– on his Straight Talk Espresso blog at VanityFair.com.
