Henry Rollins scores a half-century with new spoken-word show - 2011 UK dates announced
With bigger muscles than Arnie and more brain-cells than the remaining members of the human-race, Henry Rollins is a rare-breed. If he were a UK citizen, he'd probably have earned the title of 'national treasure' or 'raconteur' etc., etc., but in his native States, Rollins is probably just known as a 'threat' and an 'activist'. Like he cares...
After forging an intensely rewarding career in music with the sheer blast-power of Black Flag and the vociferous anger of his Rollins Band, the man himself appears to have distanced himself from the rock-scene and ventured full-pelt into his spoken-word career. Fair enough - after all, if you've got something interesting to say, you may as well do it on your own.
This year, Rollins hits 50 years old and to mark the occasion has written a brand new show simply entitled "50", in which the big man will reflect on his life so far, as well as experiences from his travels around the Far East. Uncompromising, funny and engaging, his UK dates include two special shows at Edinburgh's Queen's Hall on 18th and 19th August (tickets are £15) and appearances at the Leeds and Reading Festivals (tickets still available). Other dates may be announced so keep 'em peeled right here for more details...
