American punk pioneer Henry Rollins holding a spoken word show in Singapore

SINGAPORE — American singer and songwriter Henry Rollins will return to Singapore for a spoken word performance at the Victoria Theater on October 25.

The talk is part of the former singer of hardcore punk pioneers Black Flag’s world tour, which includes other stops in Asia such as Malaysia and Thailand.

According to promoters Live Nation Entertainment, the 61-year-old will talk about the “interesting” and “strange” events that have happened to him in recent years.

Rollins first rose to prominence when he joined Black Flag in 1981 and served as their vocalist until 1986. He then formed his own band, Rollins Band, which performed in Singapore in 1992 .

The show became controversial after reports of fans moshing and diving on stage during the concert led authorities here to ban slam-dancing at concerts.

The multi-hyphen wears many hats. He is the founder of the publishing and record company 2.13.61, starred in films such as the crime drama Heat (1995) and the film Bad Boys II (2003), and hosts radio, television and podcasts.

He has released several albums, including spoken word, and is the author of several books.

In 1995, he won a Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album for the audio version of his 1994 memoir, Get In The Van.
