Former Black Flag front man and spoken word orator extraordinaire Henry Rollins is coming to Asheville’s Orange Peel on February 22nd at 8pm. The show will be all spoken word and is entitled "Provoked".
Tickets for the show in Asheville went on sale December 14 and can be obtained through Ticketmaster, Etix.com and Ticketweb. The show will surely incite and show insight, while also enraging and enlightening the crowd.
"Not many people can hold a crowd of hundreds transfixed for three hours using only a microphone and a flat black backdrop, but Renaissance Man Henry Rollins is one of them," said a Reno Gazette reviewer. "Rollins’ talks are so fluid, it’s hard to tell how much is planned, how much is off the cuff."
In the show, Rollins rants about current events like the war in Iraq and the media, all the while weaving in personal experiences in places like Syria and Australia.
Rollins also hosts "The Henry Rollins Show" on the Independent Film Channel. His past guests have included Iggy Pop and actor Don Cheadle.
Tickets for the Asheville show are available through Ticketweb.com.
