American musician, writer, journalist, publisher, actor, motivational speaker, television and radio host, spoken word artist, comedian and activist Henry Rollins is set to return to Australia in September for ‘An Evening With Henry Rollins‘, in what will be his first all-talking affair since 2012.
The enormous month-long national tour covers both the major capital cities as well as regional areas across all states and territories, beginning Friday September 2 at the Blue Mountains Theatre & Community Hub in New South Wales, before concluding September 25 at the Margaret River Cultural Centre in WA.
The tour is no doubt set to be an entertaining affair, despite the once controversial vocalist formally from American hardcore punk band Black Flag mellowing out in recent years. Now an activist for LGBT rights, World Hunger Relief and an end to war, Rollins will no doubt remain thought-provoking and outspoken.
With his multitude of limitless talents, Rollins has toured many roads less travelled, including Nepal, Siberia and South Sudan, filming a number of television series for National Geographic and the History Channel, before touring as a spoken word artist, and eventually obtaining his first lead role in the feature film He Never Died.
In 2014 Rollins was awarded the prestigious Ray Bradury Creativity Award in recognition for his lifelong contribution to the arts, his passion for social activism, and his intense passion for the importance of maintaining books and libraries.
Tickets go on sale 9am local time on Friday March 11, with the full list of upcoming tour dates able to be viewed on his official website, here.
