Henry Rollins Rolls In North America

Henry Rollins is headed back on the road across North American for a spoken word tour that spans four months. The 72-show trek ranges from Oct. 6 to Jan. 8.

Some notable stops along the way are  in Los Angeles, where Rollins will perform for four nights,  in Philadelphia where he will spend a full weekend, and  in Orlando, Fla., the site of the shooting of Christina Grimmie last Friday.

The former  frontman doesn’t play much music these days, but he is as opinionated as ever. His website says the shows “seamlessly and humorously blend together a mix of political discourse, social commentary and personal anecdotes.”

Despite his political views Rollins does have shows in North Carolina booked, although he will no doubt have some thoughts to share on the state’s controversial “Bathroom Bill” HB2.

Prior to his North American run he is in Europe until August, and then has 21 shows in New Zealand and Australia and a pair of performances in South Africa Sept. 30 and Oct. 1. This stretch of gigs marks his most extensive touring schedule since 2012, though he has been performing infrequently here and there.
