Join Henry for an intimate evening on Thursday, September 20, 2018 at 7:30 PM at the Music Hall Ballroom as he shows many of his favorite pictures from Baghdad to Pyongyang. Henry Rollins – Travel Slideshow Tour 2018 is part of Cincinnati Arts Association’s 2018-19 Presenting Season.
Tickets go on sale Friday, July 27 at 10:00 AM at www.CincinnatiArts.org, (513) 621-ARTS , and the Aronoff Center and Music Hall Ticket Offices. Group discount tickets for ten or more are available by calling (513) 977-4157.
Henry will present a special performance drawing on his experiences and his vast archive of photographs. “For many years, I have documented my travels all over the world with a camera. Never easy, but always worth it. The photos have stories behind them. I have selected several images, to show and talk about.”
As a keen observer, Henry will be sharing stories from journeys all over the world, including the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia, South America, and Antarctica.
In describing Henry Rollins, the tendency is to try to squeeze as many labels as possible into a single sentence. “Rollins is many things,” says The Washington Post, “diatribist, confessor, provocateur, humorist, even motivational speaker…his is an enthusiastic and engaging chatter.” Entertainment Weekly’s list includes “Punk Rock icon. Spoken word poet. Actor. Author. DJ. Is there anything this guy can’t do?” TV Guide has more concisely called him a “Renaissance Man,” but if Henry Rollins could be reduced to a single word, that word would undoubtedly be “workaholic.” When he’s not traveling, Henry prefers a to keep a relentless schedule full of work, with gigs as an actor, author, DJ, voice-over artist, and TV-show host, to name a few of the roles that keep his schedule full.
Henry has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as front man for both Rollins’ Band and Black Flag, and as a solitary traveler with an insatiable curiosity, favoring road-less-traveled locales in places such as Nepal, Sri Lanka, Siberia, North Korea, South Sudan, and Iran.
Henry currently hosts a weekly radio show on L.A.’s renowned NPR affiliate KCRW, in addition to writing weekly columns for the LA Weekly and Rolling Stone Australia.
