Rollins To Speak Volumes At The 2006 Big Day Out

13 December 2005

Henry Rollins To Speak Volumes At The 2006 Big Day Out

The BIG DAY OUT is proud to announce one of true originals of contemporary pop-culture, singer-turned-author, activist, actor, publisher and spoken word performer, the one and only HENRY ROLLINS as a special guest of the 2006 BDO tour (ALL SHOWS).

The prolific ROLLINS will visit New Zealand shores to deliver his inspired and ingenious spoken word performances for BIG DAY OUT audiences at the Auckland event - just the second time ROLLINS has performed spoken word to a dedicated rock crowd.

Renowned for his unrelenting passion, wit and intelligence, ROLLINS delivers performances that blur the lines between storytelling, standup comedy and political activism. Touted as a profane camp counselor telling stories round the campfire, HENRY ROLLINS shares fascinating and riotously funny tales from the road with energy and enthusiasm to burn.

Having previously shied away from performing his spoken word shows at music festivals, Henry bit the bullet and performed 'Breakfast With Henry Rollins' at this years Donnington Rock Festival in the UK, going down a storm with 5000+ heavy metal fans - so much so that he has been booked to perform spoken word at a series of European rock festivals throughout their summer.

With a no-holds-barred attitude to life ROLLINS continues the musical legacy of the seminal punk band Black Flag with the Rollins Band, as well as running a publishing company, a record label, working as a film critic, radio DJ, writer, political activist - you name it, he does. And if he hasn't done yet, you can bet your ass he'll do it soon!

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
