PRESS RELEASE:

Henry Rollins brings his engaging and provocative spoken word tour to New Zealand, with shows at Crystal Palace (Auckland) on Saturday 27 August and Paramount Theatre (Wellington) on Sunday 28 August and just announced Union Hall, Otago University, (Dunedin) on Friday August 26th.M

Tickets for ‘An Evening With Henry Rollins’ are available from now online via UTR.co.nz and in store at their outlets.

Rollins' spoken word performances – talking shows as he calls them – are a seamless mix of humor and outrage; pop culture, political commentary and personal anecdote; healthy skepticism and rugged realism.

As a solitary traveler with insatiable curiosity, Henry has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as frontman for both Grammy Award nominated Rollins Band and Black Flag, favouring road-less-traveled locales in places such as Nepal, Sri Lanka, Siberia, North Korea, South Sudan and Iran.

Rollins is many things, says the Washington Post, diatribist, confessor, provocateur, humorist, even motivational speaker…his is an enthusiastic and engaging chatter.

Since his last shows downunder in 2012, Henry has - as always - been busy. Making a number of TV series for National Geographic, and the History Channel, had his first starring role in a feature film ‘He Never Died’, and been a part of one of the greatest live music / silent film projects ever undertaken, along side the likes of Grace Jones, Lemmy, Iggy Pop, in Gutterdämmerung.

The epitome of a Renaissance workaholic, traversing multiple arts genres, Henry is an actor (Sons of Anarchy, He Never Died, Gutterdämmerung), voice over artist, author (over 25 books), photographer (Occupants) columnist (LA Weekly, Rolling Stone Australia), TV host (National Geographic, History Channel, IFC), radio DJ (KCRW), activist and spoken word performer (delivering countless shows around the world).

In 2014 he was awarded the prestigious Ray Bradbury Creativity Award in recognition for his lifelong contribution to the arts, his passion for social activism, as well as his intense passion for the importance of maintaining books and libraries.

“Thought-provoking, entertaining and exhilarating, the man is a force to be reckoned with.” The Daily Telegraph

“Rollins’ emphatic, honest and honestly funny performance is a unique and fulfilling experience.” Fasterlouder The tour is proudly presented by Plus1, UnderTheRadar, 95bFM and Radio One.
