Henry Rollins - US
Good To See You 2022
As fascinating and incisive as ever, Henry Rollins delivers spoken word performances with perfectly constructed tableaux that are full of humanity, warmth, humour and self-deprecation.
Known for his sharp wit as well as his charisma, the former Black Flag and Rollins Band frontman offers spoken word shows in which he exposes his observations of the human condition and denounces its shortcomings with a keen sense of self-mockery. Once violent, built like an ox, he’s now greying, but still as sharp as ever. The American tells his unlikely anecdotes, from his troubles with showbiz to his stories about penguins, throwing digs at his fellow citizens or a few politicians in the process, and disseminating a few pungent truths. “I know that, at my age, I shouldn’t have this anger. I should be sedate and rotund sat on a couch. As long as you’ll come to see me, though, I’ll try to go out like Lemmy and David Bowie. Brilliant, free, and uncompromising.”
