Henry Rollins 'Provoked' Again: Tickets for 20-City 2008 Leg of North American Tour on Sale December 14 and 15; Episodes of 'The Henry Rollins Show' Now Re-Airing on Fuse

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 10, 2007) - HENRY ROLLINS hits the road in late February for the next leg of his tour, "PROVOKED: AN EVENING OF QUINTESSENTIALLY AMERICAN OPINIONATED EDITORIALIZING AND STORYTELLING."

After more than 50 shows from coast to coast in the U.S. and Canada in fall 2007 -- and a run of international dates that will have him trekking the globe for nearly a month starting in mid-January -- HENRY kicks off the next stretch of North American "PROVOKED" dates on February 19 in Birmingham, Alabama.

Tickets for most shows on the tour go on sale December 14 and December 15 via Ticketmaster,, and other ticket vendors. Once again, "PROVOKED" promises to incite and offer insight, to enrage and enlighten, and to draw both laughs and ire.

"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," was the Reno-Gazette Journal's assessment of PROVOKED. "Rollins' talks are so fluid, it's hard to tell how much is planned, how much is off the cuff."

"A hard-core renaissance man who clocks life with military precision," said the Boston Globe. "The 46-year-old former Black Flag frontman rants, raves, reminisces, opines, and editorializes... during his latest and well-titled show, 'Provoked.'"

"On stage, Rollins barks a fierce oratory about things like the Iraq war and the state of corporate media, while weaving in anecdotes about his latest adventures in places like Syria and Australia and then gushing over his love for authors like Tolstoy and Hemingway," adds the Santa Cruz Sentinel. "He goes a mile a minute, always astute, hilarious and intense."

Simply put, "Rollins' spoken-word shows have become a lengthy but exhilarating forum," writes syndicated columnist Alan Sculley.

Meanwhile, after a successful second season of "The Henry Rollins Show" on IFC -- with guests ranging from Iggy Pop to Don Cheadle -- past episodes are now re-airing on Fuse.
