"The older I get, the more I enjoy touring and being on stage," said Rollins, 47. "I've tailored my life around the tour. Being off the road is a depressing experience."Henry Rollins is in Brooklyn for a two-night spoken word stand at Warsaw tonight (Feb 27) and tomorrow (Feb 28). I have two pairs of tickets to give away. Want to win? Learn how, and watch a video of Henry on Carson Daly, below....
Rollins likes being a loner, a fiery outspoken rebel with many causes. Tonight, Rollins will spout off about politics, music and whatever else may come to mind in a nearly three-hour spoken-word performance.... [Baltimore Sun, yesterday]
"An evening of quintessentially American opinionated editorializing and storytelling. The truth, like humor, is where you find it."-Henry Rollins
Henry Rollins going on another spoken word tour - this time with lots of cities on the agenda. He's calling the show "Provoked with Henry Rollins", and tickets go on sale Friday for two February shows at Warsaw in Brooklyn. All dates below.....
It's been a long time since I saw a Henry Rollins spoken word show. Last night (April 11, 2007) at the Gramercy Theatre, Henry was even more engaging, funny, and inspring than I remembered.
The show is at Gramercy four more nights - not sure if they're all sold out or not. Janeane Garofalo and Marc Maron (VERY FUNNY) also perform - I highly recommend you check it out if you can - especially if you feel yourself needing some reinforcement on why the Bush administration sucks.
