  HENRY ROLLINS RETURNS TO THE UK ON THE LONG MARCH 2012
6th July 2011

henry rollins



Writer, actor, punk rock legend - Henry Rollins, returns to the UK early next year for a series of spoken word shows.

Henry's spoken word performances – "talking shows" as he calls them – are a seamless (yet seemingly extemporaneous) mix of humoUr and outrage; pop culture, political commentary and personal anecdote; healthy skepticism and rugged realism. Be sure to see Henry at one of the following shows:

For more than a quarter of a century, Henry has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as front man for both Rollins Band and Black Flag and – without a microphone – as a solitary traveler with insatiable curiosity, bypassing the resorts in favor of places like Siberia and Senegal, or Burma and Bangladesh.

When he's not living out of a backpack Rollins is constantly at work as an actor, radio DJ, author of more than 20 books, and running his publishing company and record label 2.13.61.

Henry currently hosts a weekly radio show on L.A.'s renowned NPR affiliate KCRW, is a regular contributor to LA Weekly's 'West Coast Sound' and is hosting National Geographic's new three-part series Animal Underworld With Henry Rollins (starting in the UK on July 11th)

Henry's new book 'Occupants', a stunning collection of photos and essays from his global travels, is due for release in October 2011 on Chicago Review Press. With equal parts anger and optimism, Henry depicts scenes from countries including Afghanistan, North Korea, Iran and more.

'Occupants' juxtaposes the disturbing legacy of war and conflict with the hope, bravery, and kindness of humans around the world; the tragic effects of hunger and poverty with the strength and beauty of those living in dire circumstances.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
