Rollins’ spoken-word tour – dubbed Recountdown – launches September 18 at Stephens Auditorium in Ames, Iowa, and wraps November 10 at Murray Theater in Salt Lake City, a few days after the nation learns the name of its new commander in chief (hopefully anyway – hanging chads anyone?)

Other lucky folks in line to enjoy the “free-flowing fusion of travelogue, pop-culture and political commentary” that marks a Rollins talking show include Revolution in Fort Lauderdale (September 27-28), La Zona Rosa in Austin (October 5), 4th & B Concert Theater in San Diego (October 10), Wilma Theatre in Missoula, Mont. (October 15), Jack Singer Concert Hall in Calgary, Alberta (October 20), the Vic Theatre in Chicago (October 25), Town Hall in New York City (October 30), Birchemere in Alexandria, Va. (November 3), and Belly Up Aspen in Colorado (November 9).
