Everyone’s favourite motor mouth Henry Rollins, will return to Australia this September, in what will be his first all-talking affair since 2012. The mammoth month long Australian journey takes in all corners of the country, from Hobart to Darwin and everywhere in between. He has just announced that he will be playing at the Festival Of Dangerous Ideas at the Sydney Opera House on Saturday, 3rd September 2016. Tickets will be on sale from 9am on the 14th July.
Rollins says: “As always, I am greatly looking forward to being back in beautiful Australia and am extremely excited about being onstage in the Sydney Opera House for the Festival of Dangerous Ideas. I’ve only seen the SOH from the outside and having spent many of my first shows in Australia almost thirty years ago, loading out the gear through a sea of empty beer cans, this will be quite a memorable experience. Truly, I can’t wait.”
Since his last sold out national tour in 2012, Rollins, as you would expect, has 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, alongside the likes of Grace Jones, Lemmy, Iggy Pop and many more legends of the game in Gutterdämmerung.
As a solitary traveler with insatiable curiosity, Rollins, 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 and … Australia!
The epitome of a Renaissance workaholic, traversing multiple arts genres, Rollins 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.
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. Don’t miss the chance to see a great man, a great thinker and a genuinely good guy talk about his amazing life. It’s a couple of hours you’ll never forget.
