Henry Rollins Announces 2023 Australian Speaking Tour

Musician, writer and radio host Henry Rollins is returning to Australia in 2023, announcing an 18-date speaking tour. The tour marks his first trip back to the country since 2016 and will see Rollins visit all corners of the continent this June and July. 

Dubbed the ‘Good To See You’ tour, Rollins will be recounting experiences from the last seven years. An avid traveller and skilled raconteur, Rollins relates stories from his life as an artist and activist with his characteristically blunt intimacy.

Henry Rollins – ‘Good To See You’ Tour

Rollins first entered the public consciousness as the highly energetic lead singer of Californian hardcore band Black Flag, fronting the band from 1981 until their first breakup in 1986. Since then, Rollins has added a few strings to his bow: hosting a radio show on LA tastemaker station KCRW, authoring more than 30 books, writing a column for Rolling Stone Australia, acting in film and TV and fronting the Rollins Band from 1987 to 2006.

The artist is currently on a global speaking tour, visiting Europe and the UK before his trip to the Antipodes later this year.
