Henry Rollins Australian tour

The last time that punk-icon turned author/actor/producer/talker Henry Rollins was down under he was celebrating his 50th birthday by “evincing some imperfect pearls of ancient wisdom” on his fans. The tour was a whirlwind one, which saw Hank performing only four bite-size gigs in Melbourne and Sydney.

Those who missed out on listening to the Black Flag pioneer talk about everything from “chance encounters with Johnny Cash and Joe Strummer to almost vomiting on American right-wing shock jock Rush Limbaugh at a party with William Shatner”, will be pleased to know that he is returning to our shores in 2012.

As the man himself let slip last month, Hank will hit Australia in April as part of his ‘Long March’ tour, in which he discusses everything from touring with Dinosaur Jr to his thoughts on absolutely anything that is happening in the world right this moment.

Wednesday 18th April – The National Theatre, Melbourne

Is there some sort of competition of who can tour Australia the most that we don't know about it.

Henry Rollins and The Wombats are neck and neck.

As long as it's settled with some sort of physical confrontation, I'm ok with it.

Definitely interested in the Canberra show though, may head along.

Can we throw the Hilltop Hoods in there as well or do locals artists not count??
Hell, they'd probably agree to play the Tamworth Country music festival if someone asked them to!! :D

There has to be artists who tour more often than The Wombats do.

Like Calvin Harris. He's been on the lineup for every EDM fest since 2007, surely.

I will go and see him again. Last time he spoke non-stop for over two hours and it was great.

Wonder how he finds time to tour when he's so busy offering his opinion in every bloody music doco.
