The infamous former Black Flag frontman and hardcore punk royalty Henry Rollins will be rolling into town late September.
Rollins is making his way across the country on his first Australian spoken word tour since 2012, with stop-offs in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Hobart, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, as well as a number of small-town rural shows.
The prolific punk singer has explored a variety of projects in his thirty year career, including stints in film (He Never Died, Gutterdämmerung), television (Sons of Anarchy, National Geographic, History Channel, IFC), in addition to writing (author of over twenty books, as well as a columnist with Rolling Stone Australia and LA Weekly), activism and voice-over work. This is in addition to his role as vocalist for hugely influential '80s Californian hardcore-punk band Black Flag (and not to mention Grammy award winning Rollins Band).
Having made his love for Australian culture and the music scene clear, Rollins' love for the country is shown not only through his prophetic words and sagely punk-rock wisdom, but through his dedication to visit this desert country's nooks and crannies in addition to the coastal-veranda capitols in his upcoming tour.
This culmination of work ethic and dedication to the arts was confirmed in 2014, when Rollins 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".
The evening is surely one to leave punters with something to think about, whether good or bad. Tickets are currently on sale now through TicketMaster.
