Henry Rollins plans massive 2010 spoken word tour

on December 03, 2009, 10:45am

On Sons of Anarchy, Henry Rollins‘ character is completely unlike the legendary rocker. But the creative dynamo is so convincing that it’s hard to separate fact from fiction. Thankfully, he’s going to give us something we truly appreciate about Rollins other than his Black Flag and Rollins Band work: His dark and often humorous spoken word performances. And you can get in on the action when Rollins “Frequent Flyer” tour hits North America hard in 2010.

The tour kicks off January 12th in Dublin, Ireland and winds its way throughout Europe until the beginning of February. Then, it’s a journey across the pond as the North American leg begins on February 17th in Solana Beach, CA. The tour powers through America with almost a show a day before coming to a close on April 9th in Madison, WI. Unfortunately, an appearance at next year’s Coachella is not in the works, but according to MonstersAndCritics.com, the tour will continue on to South Africa and Australia before coming back to the U.S. in mid-May.

The ever-busy Rollins also told MonstersAndCritics.com that the tour is his way to not only go back to what he’s more known for but also a chance to react publicly to recent political occurrences.

“Since I was last on tour, I have been working in television and radio, traveling all over the world,” Rollins said. “And like everyone else, dealing with the changes America – and the world – is going through. I thought America would become a more peaceful place in 2009. I had no idea the country had so many lunatics. There’s a lot to remark upon, of course. There always is.”

Tickets go on sale December 4th at Ticketmaster.com.
