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