Henry Rollins is bringing his provocative and hilarious spoken-word show to New Zealand in April, with shows in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch.

For 30 years Rollins has been in the spotlight, as frontman for US punks Black Flag and the Rollins Band, and touring the world as a spoken-word artist, collecting new fans with his no-holds-barred opinions and observations.

Henry Rollins four NZ shows are:

– April 11, Clarence St Theatre, HAMILTON (Ticketek)

– April 12, Dux Live, CHRISTCHURCH (Ticketek)

– April 13, The Opera House, WELLINGTON (Ticketek)

– April 14, SKYCITY Theatre, AUCKLAND (Ticketmaster)

For ticket sales, Ticketmaster (Auckland show) and Ticketek (other shows) are running pre-sales for their members from today (Tuesday December 6), with general sales from Monday December 12.

Tickets purchased before December 24 are priced at a special Early-Bird rate.

Rollins is one of the most inspiring and interesting commentators and entertainers of his generation. His curiosity to learn from new experiences, combined with a hunger for travel, shape anecdotes that connect with audiences worldwide.

Rollins is a solitary, insatiable traveller – recent destinations include North Korea, Mongolia, Bhutan, Vietnam, India, Tibet, Sudan, Uganda, Cuba and Haiti (where locals struggling are still struggling from the earthquake two years ago).

This year has also seen the release of his book Occupants, a collection of his own essays and photos; the continuation of his weekly eclectic radio show on KCRW, the filming of a new TV series for National Geographic about those who own and consume exotic creatures; as well as finding time to perform at European festivals.
