Henry Rollins: ‘The Long March’ Begins in 2012

Henry Rollins:
‘The Long March’ Begins in 2012
Henry Rollins returns to the road, microphone in hand, for The Long March tour starting in January 2012. Henry’s latest talking tour takes him through Europe from January 12 through Mid-February before he returns stateside for, quite literally, a Long March of tour dates starting March 1 at Rialto Theatre in Tucson. Henry will follow up the U.S. dates, which wrap March 30 in San Luis Obispo, CA, with two dozen shows in Australia, New Zealand and South America in April and May.
While economy uncertainty and political upheaval define the global landscape on a broad scale, expect Henry to bring the human (and often humorous) side to light during The Long March as he shares stories from the road less traveled – including recent visits to North Korea, Mongolia, Bhutan, Vietnam, India, Tibet, Sudan, Uganda, Haiti and Cuba.

Henry’s relentless globetrotting to far-flung and often misunderstood corners of the globe is also the focus of his latest book, Occupants (Chicago Review Press), his first book of photos from his travels. Penetrating observations and incisive essays accompany the photos, as Henry 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.

“There are some inedible images, including a bizarre Ronald McDonald statue next to an ATM machine in Thailand, the incandescent smile of a young girl standing atop a mountain of garbage in Bangladesh , and a collection of shining skulls on display in Cambodia,” says Blogcritics.org of Occupants. “These are more than mere Polaroids, Rollins has a definite eye for photographic composition. The images have a compelling quality about them….Henry Rollins manages to have his cake and eat it too. He stands alone as a punk rock Renaissance man, and Occupants is a worthy addition to his oeuvre.”
