Henry Rollins Takes On Capitalism

Henry Rollins will play every single capital city of all 50 states between September and November from Juneau, Alaska, to Dover, Del. The name of the tour? Capitalism.

The tour, which has been in the works for over a year, kicks off in Honolulu Sept. 6, marking Rollins’ first talking show in Hawaii. 

The Capitalism trek ends in Washington, D.C., Nov. 5, the night before the presidential election.

“DC should be a very interesting place to be on that date,” Rollins says.
